The computer is the king of electronics. All other forms of entertainment are becoming outdated as computers keep being able to do more. Computers are becoming the focal point of people’s lives.

The computer does things faster, better, and more efficiently than any single device designed specifically for one specific purpose.

Replacing the Radio

The radio was once the focal point of people’s lives. It was where everyone listened to the newest music. People began their days by listening in to their favorite morning talk shows. There was a radio in every home, and you could often see people carrying portable radios with them. You no longer need a radio to enjoy your favorite stations; all you need is a computer.

Technology Market
