Technology is changing all of the time, and it can often feel like we are always upgrading or replacing tech such as laptops and phones for the latest release. They are dramatically enhancing the way we live and the things that we can do with them. However, there is no denying that we can all face issues when it comes to technology. With that in mind, here are some of the common issues we can face when it comes to using tech.

Not being understood when it comes to voice control
One of the most frustrating things about technology right now is the use of voice control for some things. A smart home, for example, will now have devices such as Google Home or Amazon Alexa, and while they are great for all sorts of things, you also have the frustration of the fact that sometimes they just don’t understand what you are asking them to do. It is especially noticeable with things like accents.
Switching between Windows and MAC
In many cases, you are either a windows user or a MAC user. Trying to work on both in similar periods of time is only going to be confusing. Windows has special ways of doing things, and MAC has different keyboard symbols that you need to get used to. Even the exit button from the screen is on opposite sides. It takes a lot to get used to one, so switching between the two types of technology is enough to put anyone off.
Your devices freezing
It is so frustrating when you are in the middle of working on something and then all of a sudden the screen freezes, or your device just stops working. It can happen commonly with things like a smartphone or a tablet device. You could be in the middle of reading something, typing an email or downloading a document and all of a sudden you have an outage and it freezes. There isn’t much you can do other than restart the device, but even though tech is advanced we still can’t avoid this.
Not having enough memory to store things
Have you gotten to the point where you have wanted to download something and then realised you haven’t got enough memory for it? It is another frustrating thing about technology that can’t be avoided. You have to regularly clear your devices to ensure that storage is not being taken up unnecessarily. It can often be annoying, but thankfully many new devices are now having higher amounts of storage purely because they realise that things take up a lot of space.
No memory for software updates
Finally, we can also get to a stage where a software update is needed, but there is not enough space for you to action it. But then you need the update in order to actually keep using the device. It is a frustrating catch 22.
Let’s hope it makes you feel less alone highlighting some of the common issues we can all face with technology.
