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.

Thanks for the feedback!
I would assume the same way we all do such as a phone for calling, a computer for internet, etc.
Overall, it seems to have increased the quality of life. For example, as medicine advances thanks to technology, many who would have died from diseases in post-war Australia w…ere saved.
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.
yeah, When I grew up, the primary sources of health information for most of us were our physicians or our friends and family. But over the past decade the resources we use an…d rely on for health information, and how we use it, have radically changed. With the ubiquitous availability of the Internet, we're now taking on the role of gathering and assessing this information ourselves, often before we visit or return to our doctors. To find health information, most of us turn to search engines or health sites -- whether to answer questions about a new physical discomfort, a known ailment or about a health matter facing a child or other person we care.
In 1945, most Australian teenagers were entertained by car and transistor radios. They were greatly influenced by rock 'n' roll which led to adoption of the music genre's …fashion.
As advanced as any other developed country.
As people moved down the coast and toward the inland they had to adapt to very different climates and food sources. Over 50 000 years or more they also had to adapt to the… great climatic changes Australia experienced over that period. The plants and animals of ancient Australia were very different from those of today. Forty thousand years ago, many of the megafauna (huge birds and animals) still roamed the country. There were also changes in technology. There is evidence that around 20 000 years ago, the people of northern Australia learned to grind stone to make better axes. There is evidence that this method of making axe-heads was used in the Sydney area around 4000 years ago, along with spear throwers. Around the same time the dingo arrived, probably brought to Australia from South-East Asia, and the Tasmanian tiger and Tasmanian devil became extinct on the mainland. They survived only in Tasmania, which was isolated by the waters of Bass Strait. By the late eighteenth century, when Europeans first settled at Sydney, Aboriginal peoples had developed many different technologies to provide for their needs, and many different ways of life.
Yes. We have a similar lifestyle and technology to the USA and western europe.
Since 1997, modern technology has actually advanced very much. For example, cell phones have gotten more complicated and much smaller, computers have gotten more practical and… user-friendly, and almost all TVs are now flat-screen, high-defenition plasmas or lcd's or led's and so on. Also I don't think the iPod was invented for another year or so.
One of the major technologies that changed Australia was the invention of the telegraph. Prior to this technology being developed, Australia was very much isolated from the re…st of the world, unable to communicate immediately with other countries and continents. Any news that came to Australia took weeks to arrive, because it came via ships. When the Overland Telegraph line was completed in 1972, the southern states were in contact with Darwin which was in contact with Java and the rest of the world. The main line went to Adelaide, and communication and information could then be sent out to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Hobart. Australia was able to keep up with events as they happened, whereas before people only heard important news when it was weeks (even months) old.
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.
Hot in winter,,, eh upside down,,, Better than in New Zealand,,,,Most innovative in the world,,,,few rules
Maybe we are lacking of robotic structures and those flying cars we oftenly see in the movies :D
Technology changes - to take advantage of improvements to existing hardware, or to introduce new hardware that has recently been invented. One simple example would be the …MP3 player. Previously, CDs were a step forward from analogue vinyl. MP3 players improved on digital technology, to shrink the device down to a much smaller size from a 5-inch CD.
