Top Tech Trends

If you’ve gone to a store like Best Buy recently, you might have had a “system overload” when browsing for a new laptop, or even if you were looking for any device. And this is largely due to our rapidly advancing technological world.

It’s true today that our technology is obsolete once it hits the shelves. Chances are, if you’re an iPhone or Android user, you already know that the model you bought last year is going to be phased out, if it hasn’t already. 

While advancing technology is great for manufacturers of devices, streaming services, and rapid app installers, it places the common user in a state of confusion as to what is actually a good purchase. 

Despite the sheer size of our technology, there are a few products which beg to be noticed. Here, we’ll explore a few of the best apps and gadgets that you’ll want to consider in 2021


If you’re looking to learn a new language, you already know how difficult of a learning process this can be. Language skills are difficult to learn, but today instead of the traditional approach, many new language students are turning to the app store for help.

Duolingo is a language learning app that is completely free, though with upgrades and in-app purchases you’re able to unlock a ton more tools to help you along your language learning process. 

The app is being used by many college students as a way to keep up with the demands of classroom studies, and to use for practical applications.


By now, just about every business professional has heard of or has used Zoom. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoom became a necessary and vital tool to keep businesses from going bankrupt. 

The technology allows you to attend conferences, hold interviews, attend meetings, and just about any other situation where you need to be in attendance where someone can see your face. 

As we’re soon to go forward in a post-pandemic world, Zoom has been forecast to be an essential instrument for businesses across the globe.

Google Find My Device

If you’ve ever lost your smartphone, you’re probably familiar with the high level of anxiety that comes along with this experience.

Losing your phone is no laughing matter, and for some, this experience can be so debilitating that they actually suffer physiological effects such as shortness of breath, panic attacks, and elevated blood pressure to name a few. But now, there’s no need to worry.

Google’s Find My Device app is one of the best free apps to locate your lost phone. And Google’s app also allows you to remotely disable your pin or change your code just in case someone gets ahold of your phone and goes snooping around.

Virtual Assistants

The popularity of virtual assistants is projected to become much larger in the coming years. And this has everything to do with Bluetooth and wireless technology that is being integrated into just about everything we use.

With the ability to have your lighting system, thermostat, appliances, and every PC in your home operating wirelessly, a virtual assistant can be installed and allowed access to use all of these devices at your command.

It was once a vision of the future to walk into your home and simply speak commands to have lights turned on. Now, you can have your lights turned on, adjust your temperature, play music, and start your coffee all with the help of a virtual assistant such as Alexa. 

The apps that we use have truly changed the ways we live and work in today’s interconnected world. And it’s no secret that this tech will only get more advanced as we progress further into uncharted territory. 

You never know, perhaps one day all we’ll have to do is think about turning the lights on and voila!
