Technology New Year’s Resolutions for 2014

You’ve finally found a few New Year’s resolutions you can actually keep. Keeping up with technology will help you keep with the changing times and even change your life for the better. Here’s a few great technological New Year’s resolutions for 2014.


Social Media

Your social media outlets may be overcrowded and overwhelming. Clean them up by deleting people you don’t know, filling in all of your personal information and cleaning out all of the old data. Is your favorite TV show still “Grey’s Anatomy?” Tagging friends in Facebook and adding jobs to LinkedIn will just make you that much cooler.

A blogger on Mashable goes even further saying he will amp up Facebook instead of being lazy and just having his Twitter posts copy to Facebook. Get out of the lazy social networking rut and have a little fun in the cyberworld!

Save Money on Cable, Internet and Phone Service

Saving money is a resolution made by many only to be forgotten after the first sale of the season. Saving money on your cable, internet and phone service is different because once you make a change, you don’t have to worry about it anymore. There are plenty of internet deals out there, once you bundle with phone service.

Everyone gets tired of paying a million different utility bills. Many companies allow you to bundle these services making it so much easier and even less money. Keeping yourself and your family entertained is important so it just makes sense you should have all of these services at your fingertips. The fact that you save money on the services is just priceless. Talk to your local provider about the deals of the new year and jump on them.

Back Up Your Data

Many people don’t think about backing up their data until their phone is stolen, lost or broken. It’s easy to back up your photos, numbers, music and calendar online or in iCloud. Losing years of data you’ve collected is simply mind blowing. It’s much easier to back up data than to ask everyone for numbers, comb through your Facebook searching for pictures and spending hundreds of dollars rebuilding your playlists.

Record, Record, Record

Gone are the days of video cameras weighing 50 pounds. Today you can whip out your phone to record something funny. You can post things all over social media and in files for easy access to fun memories. Home videos were once all about dragging out all of the equipment to hook up the projector. These days you can access all of these videos with a click of a button. Your great great grandchildren will thank you.

Go Paperless

Kill less trees and make paying bills easier by going paperless. You can easily set up payments online with most companies. Scan in important documents so they are always easy to access and you are not stuck rummaging through your files for your birth certificate. Set up auto payments so you don’t even have to worry about missing a bill deadline and living in the dark for a few days. Going paperless doesn’t just mean with your online payments. If you’re a savvy shopper, there are plenty of mobile coupons and applications for your phone that most stores will accept too!

Get Updated on Technology

Technology is rapidly changing. Make it a point this year to know the newest changes and gadgets on the market. Did you know you can even stream the internet through your television? Watch your favorite Netflix shows, all through your wireless internet. Check up on the newest, latest and greats applications for your phone as well! There are so many neat things to do with technology. Don’t become the generation stuck without the knowledge of how high tech gadgets can make your life much easier. Life can be easily accessed with the touch of a button.
