How much has technology changed Australia?
technology has not only changed Australia but the whole world. it has made some major improvements in the last 50years and it looks like there will be a lot more in the next 100 years. for example there are many things we take for granted now that would not have existed 20,30,40 or even 50 years ago like tv, computers, ipods and ps2's, washing machines, friges, dishwashers, radios, digital alar clocks and watches.

Technology now allows pharmacists to automate the counting of pills, cross check any drug to drug interactions, and ensure proper dosage for patients without having to write o…ut the full calculation. Now with Escribe it allows a doctor to send the prescription to the pharmacist with the identification number of the drug which ensures the right drug is being prescribed without the pharmacist having to interpret the doctor's handwriting.
it usually lowers production cost
Yes it will change and by that i mean it will get better and better. you don't really see people carrying around an old 1980's phone you are more or likely to see people carry… around Iphones and in popular places in shop's you are very likely to see shopkeepers carrying an Ipad and sooner it will get better and better just how it all did in the 1980's! RDK - Everything in life is changing. Change is the essence of life, natural selection and adaptation. I consider this rhetorical because we have come along way from mere caveman clothe, and fire, to "The Digital Age". Be happy that kids aren't enveloped in virtual reality games, still allowing them conscious thought and the ability to depict reality from digital fiction. Technology doesn't always change for the best. Sure it gets better, but sometimes at what cost. - The A bomb; High electricity emitting radio poles!.. Stuff that kills the human body and causes irregularities in cells producing cancer and disease. We as people need to share part in the advancement in technology and commit to the assurance that it is going to lead us in a better direction. We can make anything we our gods of our environment and need to work together to better our future.
Technology has changed businesses enormously. Businesses are now able to operate and manufacture far more efficiently than they could in bygone decades. One example is the i…nternet: (I have listed 10 point, which i consider as vital) In bygone days, small businesses did not have the resources, which larger competitors had. Nowadays even small businesses can access much of the same technology as the giant corporations. They can accept on-line payments and can even deliver products over the internet. The internet has also opened all sorts of niche marketing opportunities that either never existed before, or were to expensive to tap into. With an on-line presence you can do a lot of direct marketing, and it is therefore very easy to reach your target market. With a professional designed website, it is now easy for small businesses to have the appearance and credibility of being a large cooperation. For a small amount of money, that can be used to pay a website designer, the return can be much greater. The internet and with it an on-line presence enables a business to advertise at considerably lower prices, compared to other promotional tools. As an example; posting out a mail to a customer will probably cost around £1.50 (printing, postage etc.), whereas to e-mail the same message to the customer will cost nothing, except working hours. Open 24/7. By automating a website, a business can be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and all this with no extra staff costs and no overtime rates to pay and if the website has got the feature to shop on-line, customers can, of course, shop 24/7, as well. A website also helps people to access information about products and services in the comfort of their own home, instead of having to drive to a local shop, for example. It can also be helpful for reaching a global audience. More countries/people are connecting to the internet each year. The internet and with it a website, breaks down geographical boundaries and limitations. With the help of search engines, like "Google" or "Bing", people can locate and buy products from every corner of the world. Customer service is made easy. The internet/website makes it possible to capture visitors information. Keeping in touch (via e-mail) helps to improve a long-term relationship. Another helpful tool to get customer feedback is an on-line forum. This is a low-cost customer feedback tool. Questions that are normally answered by phone can be answered on the internet. Nowadays every professional website has got a "FAQ" (Frequently Asked Questions) page. A website can list the answers to the most frequently asked product or service related questions. The internet is much more dynamic than a few years ago. It is constantly being improved by the availability of new software. An example might be: Automatic product updates through the use of databases.
As advanced as any other developed country.
Digital technology has drastically changed the way we take photographs ! With 35mm film, you have to wait to see the result of your pictures - often being disappointed with th…e quality. Digital cameras enable you to review the pictures instantly - deleting them if necessary.
The difference between technology and technological change is that one is a process and one is a change in that process. Technology takes something that is input and makes… it output. A technological change involves taking that technology and tinkering with it to change the output levels.
Australia uses the same type of technology used by the rest of the world. In fact Australians invented a good deal of it like databases, Wireless networks, Combine harvesters,… The black box (in airplanes), electric drill, lawn mowers, xerox photocopying, refrigeration, the pacemaker, hearing aids and the cervical cancer vaccine.
People can loose their jobs to machines.
Sometimes technology makes us very lazy All the fancy gadgets make our lives really easy Like: calculators Computers TV Electric stoves Motion sensor paper towel dispenser I h…ave a sister who's really attached to technology Good thing: school doesn't let her bring her ds to school Which means most of the time she's not lazy

It changes when the atoms in it decide that they are taking up to much space and needs to give the object more room to do whatever it does.... If they dont the object could ei…ther explode or damage things around it... Trust me it has happened to me before
Maybe question should be in reverse order: How technology has changed manufacturing? Manufacturing has a little influence on technology. It only inspires. Inventors and engine…ers look at vulnerabilities of existing technologies used in manufacturing and think about improvements, and work on new, better technologies. Technology has a great influence on manufacturing. Every new technology improves manufacturing processes - lower costs and final prices, better quality, shorter time of manufacturing, greater amount of manufactured goods.
Technology causes change because it gives us new products/ideas which may benefit us and change the way we do things.
it's changed in many ways like the internet and televisions, cell phones, all of it technology has really changed
Technology is a very smart thing we need in our lives if they are not in out lives it will be harder for us to do work at your job, home, and school.
It happens all the time: humans get new ideas for how to do things and make specialized tools to make it easier to do those things. The earliest human technologies wer…e based on flaking stone, leather strips, plant fiber string, wood, bone, and antler. Later technologies involved metals (e.g. copper, bronze, iron, steel). Most of these were related to getting food and fighting off others that would take the food (or fighting to take other's food). Transportation related technologies have changed from simple leather sandals to horse tack to carriages and coaches to trains and cars and airplanes to spacecraft. I'm sure you can think of many more changes over time.
