Licensed to Driveless

 

200w-1

Ever since you have been licensed, you have been driving me crazy!!!First,technology for automobiles have progressed with Onstar for keyless entry with bluetooth capability to communicate safely while driving. Now, there have been recent reports that the new vehicles on the road will involve auto driving without any participation on the driver’s end.When you think of auto driving,  Knight Rider comes to mind during the 1980’s before technology has been enhanced to the 21st century and beyond. It is predicted in the year 2025 in the Economist that autonomous cars will be the new wave of the future. Also, it will affect women greatly as noted the article written by Amy Danish titled “Women say no to driverless cars…” This article highlights the hesitation of women who are concerned with auto cars especially if it involves childcare and daily errands for women in all facets of life.

According to Nerdwallet, more than 37% of women refuse to purchase a driverless car even though it is noted that a car accident has been reduced by up to 20%. Also, the cost of purchasing this vehicle will be up to $5,000 more for self reliant features as well as the enjoyment of this feature which only have 23% women with an issue for this car. Since women have been noted to be the consumers of cars, this new format of driving will be in grave competition with subways, buses, and Uber services for the average women. Plus, driving will take on a whole meaning for the 21st century where everything done requires less work on our end in an auto format.

Before we know it, we will be driving in the sky like the Jetsons to our future destinations. Sit back and enjoy the auto cruise on your next journey.

It’s a SMART season

Knowledge is power…with technology revamped for the 21st century. This season always seem to come out with the latest gadgets from phones, tvs,watches, to even clothes that have SMART features that are supposed to make out daily lives easier to manage along with accomplishing daily tasks. As we know, several smart devices have been created by companies such as Apple, Google, Best Buy, Samsung along with a few others on order to be competitive in the job market as well as sustain visibility in a world where everything is done for independence for the average woman.

However,  there are many SMART devices mentioned that have made the average woman dumb and inept to function without technology for one day. For example,  text messaging has made conversation faster with Emojis but involves no verbal communication. Also, smart watches help a woman manage her life on the go but reduce her time in spending with family and friends. Finally, SMART devices like HDTV’s have the ability to enjoy sports and entertainment anytime but no time to truly enjoy the full experience first hand. The advantage of having a smart TV is the ability to connect with a plug from a laptop or phone and enjoy the leisure of watching movies and TV at home without the hassle of long lines and expensive prices; the disadvantage is the lack of interaction with other people and experience missed by staying home.

Whether it is Black Friday,Cyber Monday or any other day of the week, let’s be smart this holiday season and be wise to spend within our means and expand our minds naturally. There is nothing wrong with enjoying technology and enhancing one’s life as a woman to navigate in this century as long as there is wisdom in using smart devices sparingly and make smart decisions with the tools provided for betterment of oneself.
