appleAs predicted by many in the 1970s and 1980s, computers are taking over the world. You’ll find them in one of their many guises in every home and office today.

All of this technology means that most paper-based transactions such as checks and money orders and documentation such as filing cabinets will become obsolete in the near future.

The Postal Service is struggling as more communications are handled electronically. Those who refuse to learn how to use computerized devices are being left behind – or were a long time ago.

If you feel you are not proficient with computers or technical matters, you might be a little worried about all this. Fortunately, computer system such as the Mac are designed for ease of use.
