The number of digital gadgets has increased considerably in the market. All you need to do is to read the e-Books available and learn all you can about them. User manuals do not give that good a picture.
In fact, at a time when people really cannot manage without digital products, be it a mobile phone or an LCD TV, one really needs help understanding how these things work.
Every month, there are new inventions in the digital world. What you purchase today will become obsolete tomorrow. Also, the re sale value of digital items drops with the advancement of technology.
The younger generation has their fads based on what new device is available in the market. There seems to be a constant competition based on who will purchase the latest electronic or digital gadget. They seem to learn how to use digital items faster because their brains are more in-tune with the latest developments. Older folk are wary of the digital world, afraid to try the latest item out.
You might be one of those who make a constant search for the latest gadget and though you can afford only a few, you would really love to have them all. Or, you might be one who cares little for the advancement in technology and likes to buy a digital item that you like and one that will serve you for quite a few years.
The best way to learn about a new device is not to read about it on the internet, but to actually use it. The danger here is that you may spoil it but that’s the choice you have to make. User manuals are really hard to understand. The devices keep getting smaller and more compact. The screens keep decreasing in size. That could also be a drawback for people with weak eyesight.
E-books can give you a lot of useful information. If you read through them in your free time, you will understand how the new digital gadgets work. You can ‘zoom-in’ an E-book in order to read it comfortably. For example, if you have just bought an iPod and are having a hard time understanding how to use it, do not waste your time reading the user manual. Open an E-book and read through it. You will be able to understand it very well.
