Technology is a great thing. Among other benefits, it makes our work much more efficient, it allows us to do things more conveniently, and it gives people access to information faster and easier than ever before.
But, at what cost?
You see, technology is a double edged sword. As we maximize and enjoy its seemingly limitless potential, we must also be cautious not to be burdened or hurt by it.
We constantly praise humanity’s advances in technology, not to mention the power of the internet, recognizing that because of it, the world has never been smaller and more connected.
While that may be the truth, many of us fail to realize that the very same technology that practically surrounds us everywhere we go, has also made us slaves of it. The very thing that has given us the power to be connected has, ironically, also been the very reason why human beings have slowly grown apart. People have become frighteningly addicted and dependent on technology that we have sadly become imprisoned by our devices and forgotten the importance of personal ties and truly “being” with someone and sharing meaningful moments with them.
It’s such a tragedy to see families living under the same roof and yet never really “being together”.
More great news from the World’s Best Low Cost Carrier.
AirAsia today announced it will recommence flights from Clark International Airport in Pampanga with three flights weekly to Kalibo (Boracay) effective March 27, 2017.
Philippines AirAsia CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said, “AirAsia has constantly dedicated itself to make air travel more affordable, convenient, and accessible to all and we are reaffirming this commitment with our newest Clark-Kalibo route. We are thrilled to provide the much needed connectivity at affordable fares for travellers from Central and Northern Luzon.”
America, here we come!
AirAsia X has received clearance from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) to fly to the US.
This is BIG news because the airline is the first Asian low-cost carrier to secure approval to operate scheduled passenger flights to the US. And the much celebrated approval allows AirAsia’s long-haul, low-cost sister airline to operate services to any destination within the US.
AirAsia X is currently considering flights to several US states including Hawaii as part of its route expansion plans.
