Well, I do love a lot of modern things, I won't deny that. But I also won't deny that I tend to side-eye a lot of things like apps and smart phones and new "needs" that shouldn't be needs but have become needs.
However, there are several technological things I love that I would not want to do with out. They could be regarded as luxuries but they have saved my hide and my sanity.
Online bill pay. I do this through my bank. I love this. First, for bills that I get every month, I can just have them automatically paid from my account. Second, for bills that I get sporadically, I can just log on and pay them, and know that the vendor has the money. This has saved my hide. I am very easily distracted and when I had to write checks, some bills went unpaid--not because I didn't have the money, but because I misplaced them, or got distracted, or couldn't find the checks, etc. (Yes, I should be more organized. I've been striving to be that way for 43 years.) Now they're paid.
Caller ID. Oh, lord how I love caller ID. If I don't recognize the name on the screen, I don't pick up. It's a great way to screen out telemarketers.
Voice mail. Back in the day, I had an answering machine that you could dial into to get your messages, but it didn't work very well. Voice mail is convenient--I can dial in from where ever I am to get my messages.
Edited to add: How could I forget--I was reminded in the comments--the internet! Yes, it can be a haven for spineless bullies, trolls and Internet Tough Guys. But if you need to find a recipe, get ideas on how to prepare a certain type of food, get information on a subject (some of it correct) and get some good how-to's on how to do things, the internet is just awesome. I would not have had the guts to try pressure canning if I didn't see a how-to on Youtube--basically, I didn't know what the canner would look or sound like when it got up to pressure. Now I do. Yay, internet!
How about you? What technological things out there do you love?
