Pros of digital technology:
Digital technology is on the move. And there are lots of new gadgets introduced in the market each day. Sometimes, I feel lucky to be living in this age equipped with so many tools everything is just easy and accessible. I just can’t imagine being living in 1940 with actually nothing!( no facebook, no youtube not even google).
Confusion created by speed of technology:
The actual problem with this fast moving world is that we cannot decide where to invest( it really sucks). I mean, every day we see a lot of ads like ‘Hey, have you seen this’ ..’Record breaking sales’.. ‘take 70% off’.. blah blah blah. This really makes me confused and I end up buying nothing. Our human mind needs ‘options’. It needs options to compare and decide. We like to decide ourselves we just can’t believe anyone saying “hey it’s best for u”( how come he knows what’s best for me!)

Samsung Gear 360 review:-
Samsung has been a leader when it comes to technology and user experience. They just keep bringing awesome gadgets in the market. This time they have come up with Samsung gear 360. This gear can shot videos and capture pictures in a spherical view. It has two cameras which can shoot a 360 image but you can also use it to capture 180 images just by turning off one( yeah, draw backfeeling of control!). Although, it is a great gadget but itdrawback it just only supports Samsung devices Samsung Galaxy S6-S7, S6-S7(Edge), S6 Edge and also phones supported by Samsung gear manager app. So it is not for users like Apple and other brands.
It comes up with the price of between 300-350 US dollars. It has following specs:-
Resolution : 3840 x 1920
Memory: 1GB RAM Extendable by SD card supported up to 200GB
