Technology = convenience, that money can buy.
I buy certain gadgets to simplify my life, seriously.
Buying a coffee machine where I need to press one button
only to get a good cup instantly, is worth the expense, as
it saves me enormous time in the morning.
Having a flat LCD TV gives me a better picture, saves space
and is better on my eyes.
Buying a new computer every 3 years saves me the hassle
of upgrading and what not.
Having a "turbo" vacuum with the latest technology saves
not only time during vacuum sessions, it also has a dust control and other allergy save tools.
And so on and so on..... for me technology is definitely convenience and a time saver.
