As I sit down to write this, my iPhone keeps buzzing with reminders to drink water and take my vitamins—it’s really quite the assistant when it comes to helping me keep track of the little things that are easy to forget. This got me wondering, has technology really become an indespensible part of our lives? While technology can sometimes render us lazy, it’s not without its positives.
Let’s take those reminders, for example. In an age where we perhaps need more hours in a day, simple reminders from a smartphone can definitely be a blessing. You feed in the information, set an alarm and voila! But what about the more pressing matters? Well, there’s indeed an app for that. From apps that provide medical assistance, to those that allow you to make fund transfers or even book a simple movie ticket, technology has certainly made life a whole lot simpler.
And the avenue of pregnancy, parenting and childcare hasn’t been left out either. This ‘Tech Special’, we bring you our picks of the must-haves apt for the technologically-savvy generation. Whether it’s apps to track your fertility (Pg68), gadgets that every parent must consider investing in (Pg32), to apps that engage and educate your children (Pg80), we’ve got it all!
Apart from the tech talk, we do have a wealth of information that you, as parents, must know about. So, why not gear up and get with the programme? And if you’re still unsure, you could always google it… Just kidding!
