Technology has been a great ally for the economy, but it is also a very scary thing, especially when it comes to our personal safety. I know this from personal experience. The fact is, we should never assume that technology is always safe. With that being said, I will say that some of the new technology we have today is very safe, and I personally love it when technology helps the economy and improves our lives.
I am the type of person who will organize my entire home (including closets) based on what I need for vacation. Making sure that all vital supplies are in one place, even if it means putting them into a carry-on and checking out early from work so as not to miss any flights!
