Technology is everywhere we look and everywhere we go. Technology has filled our lives with conveniences we never imagined. From the time we first used a telephone, listened to a radio or surfed the Web, we were experiencing technology and all it has to offer. However, society has taken technology to whole new levels today. We no longer have to stay in our homes to enjoy all these types of technology. Now we have the luxury of taking technology with us no matter where we go. Listed below are 5 technologies we can use anywhere.
