The adjective technological describes something that’s based in science and applied to everyday life to solve problems. If you network your computers at home to make it easier to share files, you’re using your technological skills.
The root of technological comes from the Greek word tekhnologia, meaning “systematic treatment,” and a systematic, scientific approach is still behind modern technological developments. What makes something technological — rather than scientific — is the practical application of the science. The technological advances of the last decades have touched nearly every aspect of life, including how you stay in touch with friends, how you gather and analyze information, how your food is produced, and even how you listen to your music.
