Going on scenic holiday sure is refreshing, right? But then, who can possibly afford it these days? With air travel costs, accommodation costs, and so much more, the financial burden is more than most can deal with. On the other hand, there are much cheaper ways to explore interesting, beautiful new lands. Video games, of course.
Few will argue that Microsoft’s Flight simulator is amongst the most impressive games ever created. The plane models are absurdly detailed, the lighting systems lifelike enough to pass for real, and the simulation levels near perfect. But it isn’t the simulation detail that most are talking about. It is the fact that Flight Simulator literally allows the player to fly anywhere on the planet.
A good technology device can assist with making life more convenient in addition to entertaining. This is why gadgets make such wonderful gifts for just about everyone and this includes moms.
The digital nomad lifestyle has become all the rage in recent years.

Following the major technical evolution in 2020, we can only imagine what 2021 will have in store for us.
Microsoft’s Flight Simulator is all about putting you right inside the cockpit. But, while it’s always been about making you feel like the pilot, it was not available as a Virtual Reality experience until as recently as the 22nd of December 2020.
The Internet is no longer something that you browse on your PC to do research, online banking or to buy something from an eCommerce shop. Now, the Internet can be used to help you keep track of, and manage, other aspects of your daily life. For example, think about Alexa. If you fit sensors to your windows, which are linked to her, you can ask Alexa to check if these are closed when you’re not at home.
With every passing year, technology takes another leap toward a bright and promising future. Never before have portable devices been quite so powerful, offering a wide array of modern features like cameras, internet browsing, video gaming, and much more. As we slowly make our way until a new era of foldable smart technology, there are a multitude of current smartphones that are at the bleeding edge when it comes to the newest features.
For the last 5 decades, most scientists and technicians have been almost solely focused on providing better, more advanced hardware to the world. But hardware is beginning to falter as Moore’s Law breaks down, and more computer scientists are turning to artificial intelligence to make up for this. Artificial intelligence is the next big revolution in computing, and while we haven’t truly begun to feel its influence in everyday life, within the next 10 years, it will become a vital part of our society.
Android 10 has so far proven to be an extremely competent operating system, and while it does mirror many of the features found in iOS, it offers enough of its own features to be a complete OS that should be enough for most users. Android 10 can only be found on a handful of smartphones at the moment, although it’s expected to grow its reach within the next year. But developers have already been hard at work on Android 11, and from what we’ve seen, it’s going to improve and refine many of the features that can be found on 10.
