Abstract
In the present time the introduction of modern technological gadgets has created the attention of global population. The dependency of people on these hi-tech gadgets and services provided by these has reached at such level that, without these, they can't think a step forward in the direction of their growth. Which also leading to addiction or we can say obsession of the tech-devices and services. Youth is the most defenseless group among the population to be addicted to technology. The study was designed to examine the use of techdevices by youth i.e. the time spent with the gadgets, the purposes behind use, and its impacts on mental health and life style. Using structured questionnaire, unstructured interviews and observation based on primary data collected from 300 respondents in Indore especially from various undergraduate colleges showed that most of the young respondents spend a large amount of their time with their tech-gadgets and services provided by the technological environment. The purposes of use in most cases are pleasure driven rather than necessity. In addition it reveals that obsession to tech-devices has many negative impacts on the aspects relating to mental health o f the respondents and has become a causal factor in the change of life style of young participants. The results are interpreted based on the current theories and implications for future are pointed out.
Keywords: Gadgets, Hi Fi, Addiction, Problems

Introduction:
The term technology comes from the Greek word “techne”, which means the art or skill used in order to solve a problem, improve a pre-existing solution to a problem, achieve a goal, handle an applied input/ output relation or perform a specific function; technology is the making, modification, usage and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques and method of organization (Liddel, Scott, Jones & McKenzie,
1940). The young and trendy generation of today judge themselves, according to the kind of gadgets they possess.
The popularity of gadgets among youth has ensured that newer and trendier gadgets are introduced very passing day. The addiction of gadgets has been such among one and all that it has become unthinkable of a life without a gadget. The effect of these gadgets has been tremendous, and it is often debated that whether the impact that it has made on the youth is a positive or negative one.

Review of Literature:
There are several studies which show the positive impacts of the technological gadgets and services. Other studies reveal the negative impacts of these tech-products. Some of the studies take both the positive and negative impacts of these technologies into consideration and some others show a balanced approach regarding the use of the techgadgets and services.

The digital behavior of the youth makes them sit at one place for a long period of time and the eye, hand and mental coordination is maintained during that period. To cross the levels step by step in the games may improve the engineering skills among the youth and it may also help in building up good attitudes of moving ahead in life in spite of any obstacles. Following studies support the positive effects of the tech-gadgets and services.
Internet continues to grow beyond our belief. About 32.7% of the world’s population has access to the social networking sites like Face book, Twitter, Linked-In, YouTube, Flicker, blogs, wikis, and many more which let people of all ages rapidly share their interests of the moment with others everywhere. So the interconnectedness throughout the world is growing rapidly due to internet use (Tsitsika &
Janikian, 2013).
Individuals who are engaged in high level of technical activities through the digital devices are better in performing cognitive tasks. The effective use of the gadgets may have positive impacts on cognitive thinking and also makes them master multitasking (Ophir, Nass & Wagner, 2009).
It would have been a lot better if the drawbacks or the negative impacts of the use of the digital services would have been known before some years. As the use of the digital services has negative impacts students should minimize the use of these tools and should aware about its use (Walsh, 2012).

Altius Shodh Journal of Management and Commerce

Internet gaming and shopping is causing depressive symptoms among the college students. Implementation of programs is needed to detect and decrease these activities among them (Cotton, 2001).
The addictive internet use has negative impacts on mental health. There is a positive relationship between Internet addiction and psychiatric disorders like depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, attention deficit disorder, etc. So the addictive internet use should need clinical help (Young, 1998).
Technology has Both Positive and Negative Impacts Some studies fo cus on both the po sitive and negativ e consequences of use of the tech-devices and services and provide a equalized approach regarding the use of the same.
Technology is an integral part of our everyday life as people are dependent on it from all ov er the w orld f or communication, organization and employment etc. One cannot stay away from technology even for a day. Not even a single day goes without a cell phone in hand or without laptop and net surfing. Although technology being at its best there are basic problems that follow us everywhere and generally it has drawbacks in the areas of health, public safety and education (Saez, 2010).
Students should be encouraged to develop in a technological world. The necessity of social networking, computer games or digital habits of them should be understood by the elders.
But simultaneously the consequences of those habits should also be studied. It is better to study the relationship between technology, child development and the popular culture.
Parents should facilitate a healthy and balanced relationship between technology and their children helping them to use the social media effectively (Mitchel, 2012).

Again the degree of depression varies from lower to higher as per the increasing order of the time period of the use of gadgets. It may be the result of social isolation of the students due to the devotion of large amount of time towards the technology.
Weak minds are mostly getting worried even if in small matters. Results shows that 69 % respondents losing patience and face the syndrome of mental stability especially users of gadgets more than 6 hours. The amount decreases with case 1-2, 2-4 respectively.
Nearly 70 % in the user group > 6 are facing problems in making quick decisions due to lack of consciousness, which is again an example of negative impact of gadgets.
Limitations Of Research - We wind up this study with its limitations. Of course the sample size of the present research is not representative as expected & there is need of future research too. Limitation of time restricts the study to focus on users groups. Study is only focused on physical and mental problems of respondents while other factor also affects health of youth but could not be controlled.
Conclusions: The above study is conducted in a developed city and developing country like researches in western developing countries. We conclude that 3rd & 4th generation technology changes the world of communication very fast, but we must control it through setting of our priorities because any product or service should be used as necessity driven rather than luxury.

...Marketing–What’s It All About If forced to define marketing, most people, including some business managers, say that marketing means “selling” or “advertising.” It’s true that these are parts of marketing. But marketing is much more than selling and advertising. How Marketing Relates to Production Production is a very important economic activity. Whether for lack of skill and resources or just lack of time, most people don’t make most of the products they use. Although production is a necessary economic activity, some people overrate itsimportance in relation to marketing. Their attitude is reflected in the old saying:“Make a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door.” In otherwords, they think that if you just have a good product, your business will be a success. The point is that production and marketing are both important parts of a total business system aimed at providing consumers with need- satisfying goods and services. Together, production and marketing supply five kinds of economic utility—form, task, time, place, and possession utility that are needed to provide consumer satisfaction. Here, utility means the power to satisfy human needs. Form utility is provided when someone produces something tangible—for instance, a bicycle. Task utility is provided when someone performs a task for someone elsefor instance, a bicycle. The product must be something that consumers want or there is no need to be satisfied. Time utility means having the......

...other hand, Betel nut trees are abundant in our country since it is commonly found in tropical countries. The Betel nut itself has many uses. They are usually chewed with betel leaf for their effects as a mild stimulant, causing a warming sensation in the body and slightly heightened alertness, although the effects vary from person to person. The researchers thought of using the betel nut husks as source of fabrics for cloth since only the nuts and leaf are used for chewing; in which Filipinos call it mamâ. With this, the husk will also be significant, not just its nuts and leaf. Also, the betel nut husk is fibrous, wherein it is one of the criteria in making fabrics for cloth thus making the cloth more durable. This will also be the future of our indigenous textile weaving industry, instead of synthetic threads. Not only the Musa textilis (abaca) is to be used in making fabrics for cloth but Betel nut husks can also serve as an alternative source. The Betel nut itself has many uses.

The Effect of Gadgets on Students Academic Performance

...The gadgets are very useful, they help us connect to each other, they make us learn new things and discover new things. The reason why computer technologies are invented is to help make people’s life easier and to improve their way of life, especially the students. Modern computer technologies make studying easier and fun to the students. As long as students don’t become fanatics when it comes to gadgets, we don’t think that they could have a bad influence or a bad effect on students. The gadgets make our life better in many ways. Let’s take for example the cell phone, many of you are “lost” without it and when it comes to students this device is more than just a cell phone, is a chat opportunity, an Internet connection, a camera and more. Because mobile phones have today a lot of features and they are not just devices made for communication between people. A negative effect of these gadgets on students can be the fact that they can become obsessive and the students can neglect everything else, like their social life, their family and friends. Is not a bad thing to have a computer, but is a bad thing to spend all your life in front of it pretending that everything else doesn’t exist. Otherwise, most gadgets have positive effects because they enable us to do things faster and easier and they are also good when it comes to learning new things and, let’s face it, they make our life a lot easier. There is some list of the essential gadgets for students we have: A laptop......
