HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 28, 2009 1 HOMELIVING Digital dilemma PAULINE PRIEST Digital dilemma It IS difficult to live in this modern world without digital technology -- it is in our everyday lives as we see, hear and listen. The digital technology data system uses discrete or discontinuous values represented by high and low states known as bits. By contrast, non-digital (or analog) systems use a continuous range of values to represent information. Yes, technology for some of us is difficult to follow. Although digital representations are discrete, the information represented can be either discrete, such as numbers, letters or icons, or continuous, such as sounds, images, and other measurements of continuous systems. The word digital comes from the same source as the word digit and digitus (the Latin word for finger), as fingers are used for discrete counting. ''Digital'' is commonly used in computing and electronics, especially where real-world information is converted to binary numeric form. ............................................
