We have all been touched by technology in some way or another no matter who we are. Sometimes technological advancements happen so quickly and we feel difficult to keep up with them. They influence our lives in a positive way and sometimes, in a frustrating way too. Now we have the ability to listen to any song at any time we want to hear it. There were times that we had to listen to the radio for quite some time before we heard the song we actually wanted to hear.
