You're probably grateful for your 40-inch flat-screen TV, but what about the remote that operates it?

8 Technologies You Take For Granted:

by Contributing Writer, Demand Media

Overview

When a fancy tech toy comes out, such as a slick e-reader or new gaming device, we coo over it the same way we do a newborn baby. But what about the technologies we use every single day without so much as acknowledging their existence? For example, how many times have you turned on a lamp and said, "Wow! Electricity is great!" Probably never, because we often take such conveniences for granted.

ELECTRICITY

8 Technologies You Take For Granted (2/10)

Take a moment to consider your surroundings. You're probably sitting in your temperature-controlled office with plenty of light. Perhaps you have music playing in the background. You're obviously sitting at the computer. Consider how much of what you use daily -- either consciously or not -- requires electricity. We take advantage of its existence all day long, and when it goes out, we get a real clear idea of how important it is in our daily lives.

WATCHES AND CLOCKS

8 Technologies You Take For Granted (3/10)

Thanks to both analog and digital watches and clocks, sundials are now just a garden ornament. The world runs on a timetable. Simply glancing at the corner of your computer, down to your wrist or up at a hanging wall clock is all you've got to do to keep pace. Chances are you do this at least a dozen times throughout the day, so how would you fare without them?

VIDEO CAMERAS

8 Technologies You Take For Granted (4/10)

We love video for recording all our personal, sentimental moments with children, lovers and pets. Video also provides huge entertainment value and is integral in capturing important -- and sometimes monumental -- news events across the world. Video is just as vital in business, from marketing to training to video conferencing with colleagues in distant cities.

CHIP/PIN CREDIT CARDS

8 Technologies You Take For Granted (5/10)

Though we seldom think about it, a large portion of the world's money is actually intangible since it's stored electronically. Not only does this conserve paper, but it also makes paying for products and services far easier. How many times have you swiped your plastic without even thinking about the technology behind it -- and the convenience it adds to your life?

INTERNET

8 Technologies You Take For Granted (6/10)

The Internet isn't that old of an invention, yet it's become such a huge part of our everyday lives that most people forget what it was like to live in a pre-Internet age. The Internet makes communication and information dissemination a breeze in both our personal and working lives. Not to mention it's a great form of entertainment.

FLYING

8 Technologies You Take For Granted (7/10)

The art of flying remains a relatively recent luxury, but many still fail to appreciate the convenience the Wright Brothers bestowed upon us in the early 1900s. Thanks to airplanes, you can travel across the world in mere hours and spend face time with colleagues and clients for those vital business connections.

TELEPHONES

8 Technologies You Take For Granted (8/10)

Whether you stick to a push-button landline or carry the most technologically savvy smartphone, chances are you take its existence for granted. Before you were able to communicate instantaneously with loved ones and customers, you had to wait weeks, sometimes months, for a letter to arrive in the mail.

    REMOTE CONTROLS

    8 Technologies You Take For Granted (9/10)

    Whether flipping through slides in your marketing presentation, turning up the volume on your digital music player or changing the channel on your television, you can't deny that remote controls are a convenient technology. Some would wonder how we got along without remotes before their invention in 1955.
