We would like to thank the good people from Shlaw.ca law office for their generous website funding. There have been a lot of advancements in the world of technology in recent years that have changed the way people live their everyday lives. It used to be that if you wanted to watch a program on TV and you knew you wouldn't be home for it you had to record it onto a VHS tape and watch it later on your VHS player.

Now? Well, your options seem almost endless. You no longer need to record anything onto a bulky tape that could be erased or damaged at any moment. Instead you can record your favorite reality TV show about reality stars onto a PVR or download it onto your computer to watch whenever you want.

Technology has made our lives so much easier in so many facets of the way we live it. One area that has completely been revolutionized because of technology and electronics is the way we communicate with people. Telephones used to rule the world when it came to methods of communications but that's no longer the case.

Cell phones and computers have taken over that game to make communicating a whole lot easier. We can mainly thank the invention of instant messaging for that. Instant messaging has transformed the way we keep in touch with friends, family members, co-workers and anybody else we are in contact with on a daily basis.

All you need to instant message is a computer or smartphone and a buddy list. If you have those two things you're ready to go. There are different instant messaging clients you can choose from but some of the most popular ones include MSN Messenger, GMAIL Chat and Yahoo! Messenger! Signing into an instant messenger application allows you to instantly communicate with whatever friends on your list you want to communicate with.

Popular social media sites such as Facebook have also gotten into the instant messaging world and there's now a Facebook chat option that allows you to instantly message any of your Facebook friends who are online. If you need to ask your girlfriend what time the taxi is picking you up and you're both on Facebook you can get an answer within seconds.

Instant messaging has replaced the telephone because it's such a quick and convenient method of communicating. Instead of calling your best friend to ask something, you can just instant message them and be done with it. Who knows what technology will bring us next but it's probably going to be pretty awesome.
