Digital technology is everywhere
The term “Digital technology” is a pretty broad term, and considering nearly everything today relies on computers in one way or another it covers a lot of things.
It is likely that you are relying on digital tech from the moment you wake to the moment you sleep, and even whilst you sleep, too. On this site you will find lots of examples of technology, all of which fall into the digital tech category, one way or another.
