Dismantling some myths of technological devices

Technology is an open universe and, as such, it remains intriguing, full of mysteries because of the amount of novelties that arrive with a constant trickle to the market.

But it also remains a world, for the most part, rich in taboos, myths, and controversial claims about this field. It is full of fake news and myths that are without any historical or “technologically” foundation.

The digital revolution has brought with it a great deal of innovation , now perceptible in all realities and in all dimensions. But, obviously, it also generated great controversies within society.


From computers, through smartphones and leading to the field of online slots , it is observed that all these products are increasingly abundant in the market and with greater diversification. In all technological media there is an imperishable myth that probably continues to be that of the battery of technological devices: according to the vulgar, to charge well, you must first discharge it completely.

An assumption that perhaps had some foundations in previous years but that now, with lithium batteries, does not have to exist and, in fact, the opposite is not a myth: discharging lithium batteries means quickly depleting them.

Camera Megapixels

Another device, another myth to dispel: more megapixels does not mean having better photos , the quality of a photo depends on the photo sensor. Mysteries of technology, one could title these generalized postulates in society.

Slot Machines

Turning your attention to other fields, there is a myth that has accompanied slot machines since the dawn of time. Many still wonder today if it is possible to “predict” a victory, calculate it and plan a victory.

With all the arguments on the table, this prediction is nothing short of impossible, since chance influences practically the entire course of the play.

The winnings on each slot machine are governed by algorithms and all the devices within them have an RGN, the random number generator that randomly generates the winning solutions. They do not have a specific date or basic logic: it is a bit of luck, a bit of intuition.

Technological Obsolescence

Many believe that behind the reasons for the sudden “collapse” of a device there is a diabolical plan. From the series: “I buy phone X, programmed to last Y”. Nothing could be more false, if we take into account the perennial technological progress, so constant and progressive as to make obsolete even the devices launched within a few months of each other.

Many are the technological myths, but they are far from the realities.
