Here, at Ellp, we are a bunch of tech enthusiasts who share the same passions: we enjoy inspiring landscapes, delicious food and spending quality time with people we care about. In today’s world, these simple things that matter to us the most, are often the ones we don’t seem to have time for. From your child’s first few steps to the most delicious meal your grandma cooked to sharing a romantic sunset with your partner – we all tend to miss out on these on a daily basis. We find ourselves constantly busy, always doing something with the majority of time spent in front of a screen. This is exactly why we developed Ellp, to change just that!
As I was looking for inspiration for the next blog post, it came to my attention that our Top 10 Productivity Quotes (/top-10-productivity-best-practices/) was something that you really enjoyed. This prompted me to create this blog. Top 10 Tech Quotes to:
- share with you my perspective on technology with you
- motivate you to bring back the life-technology balance
- make technology assist you (and not the other way around).
I put some Ellp spin on it every now and again to show you how Ellp’s mission translates into solutions that we offer you in the form of Ellp cards. Enjoy!
Read this carefully and run a quick mental thought. On what part of the equation are you? If you wake up and check your emails or social media first thing in the morning, have most of your conversations on various devices and fall asleep in the evening with your laptop on you, I hate to break it out to you, but you’re doing wrong!
Ellp is a great example of technology working its wonders like that. Always active and protective of you in the background, it only alerts you when your action is needed, while fulfilling all time-consuming duties for you (and instead of you!) This way, you can focus on what really matters most.
What truly matters? This one is tricky, as it varies from one person to another. Having some quiet time away from your devices can help you get it right. Just some pointers. For sure, it’s not the number of likes that your pictures get or that email thread that keeps you up at night.
Another reminder that technology is there for us to express ourselves beyond previous technical limits. To be creative, and productive. To learn something new that was previously limited to a few. At times, it can get tricky, when we get sucked into the daily routines of mindlessly scrolling through Facebook, working hard and… missing out on important dates and events. Use Ellp to help you limit (or at least monitor) your Facebook time, remind you to take a break (in order to relax and freshen your mind, get some perspective) and updated of any important events!
While I’m not thrilled about that, it’s a fact. We all tend to maximize our efficiency endlessly. And yet, when it comes to taking care of our PCs, we let them slack off. A long startup, duplicate files, desktops full of folders, pictures, and icons that simply make efficiency impossible, why do we accept that? Ellp is there to help. Just outsource all these tedious tasks to Ellp and once set up, enjoy the power of automation in action. Noticeable efficiency boost guaranteed!
At times, we get feedback that our users simply can’t grasp what Ellp does for them in terms of background processes. Isn’t that what magic is as well? You may not be sure how the magic happens but you can certainly see the results enjoy being wowed. Think of checking if your email was breached. It happens every few minutes yet Ellp is not communicating it to you and it does that not to overwhelm you! A lot of Ellp functionalities work in a similar manner, silently and in the background, doing their job.
Have you ever noticed how often the programs that you use on the regular basis change? If you are with Ellp for a long time, you have witnessed several updates that we introduced: from multiplying the number of cards by four, to added functionalities like multi-configuration of cards. Let me assure you, there is even more to come your way! Why? In order to thrive in the software industry, companies need to be extremely responsive to users feedback. And here, at Ellp, we pride ourselves in doing so! For reference, check Kri’s article on how to build a community of passionate people and the one about what we do with all your feedback.
I put this quote as this is exactly how I used to feel every time my laptop would allow me around 5 minutes to drop all I was doing and run, RUN, to plug it in as the battery was dying on me. This is why all laptop battery-related cards are my favorite! Whether I want to know whether it’s fully charged or when it’s dropping below a certain level, Ellp is there to let me know about it. No more running around like lunatic again for me! In case you are like me, here is the link with detailed instructions on how to manage your laptop’s battery with Ellp.
This quote is amazing as it gives just the right perspective of technology. Simple, mundane tasks, that require no brain power nor creativity, no wit nor brilliant observation skill, can be simply automated and done by the machines. No one opposes to the machines taking over tasks in the factories that put human life at risk or robots filling in for humans in the most dangerous of operations (think drones). Yet, day-to-day PC automation is still a new solution for so many PC users. The risks of using Ellp are virtually zero! Why not take full advantage of it now?
Technology is unlocking time and resources. Yet, the compassion, as Bill Gates calls it, is the most important part. From possibilities to save and share memories to spending more time together when separated miles apart, to changing the world either by information, donation on innovation, technology can, in fact, make this world a better place. Yet no one will make your world better for you. So, once again, I suggest: spend more time unplugged, enjoy real-life relationships, look at the clouds in the sky, and dream more…
P.S. If you’re a fan of getting things done faster, then Ellp is just the right solution for you. This new PC assistant can take care of a variety of tasks for you; from maintaining your PC at the optimal level of performance, to helping you stay focused and productive, to monitoring your online safety and even elevating your entertainment. And what’s best – Ellp is free to download and yours to keep!
