The problem is Americans are bound to their phones. The cell phone companies are relying on us to talk and text all of the time. Americans are addicting to using their cell phones. Personally I think we rely so much on technology that when fails all of us are in for a huge wake up is call. Technology is a wonderful thing, we should just not
Any technology or electronic device that makes life simple is a win for me and most other people. There are several electronic devices that have changed our lives and affected me in my professional life. I am going to limit my electronics to just smartphones and tablets. If we think back on how electronics have change over the last ten years it is amazing. There was no such thing as an iPhone, although we act like we cannot live without our smartphones and tablets as few as ten years ago they didn’t exist.
It started out as a regular 2G phone, and now its move on to 3G, 3GS, and now 4G if your in the right locations. Seeing as how the iphone has been on top for so long then that can only mean the cell phone company the iphone is with is on top with it. That would be at&t which started off a long time ago as cingular wireless. Apple and at&t made a long term deal before the iphone was put on to the market. Now that apple has become one of the top notch sellers of the world they are starting to spread their business horizons.
The increasing availablity of WIFI is making VoIP much more practical. Without a constant internet connection, VoIP will not work because it relies on internet. This is not really a problem in households, as most people now have a high speed internet connection, but for mobile phones, this is a problem. The increase in smart phones with data plans is changing the landscape of telecommunications. Now customers of ATT or Verizon can use the data plans those companies provide to place phone calls through Skype, which allows them to sign up for a lower number of minutes.
These studies show how conversing uses different cognitive skills than other activities and takes up a human brain’s “bandwidth” (Novotney). She also makes another valid point that “Most people would not think of getting in a car with someone who has been drinking, but they do not have a problem getting in to a car with someone who is using their cell phone” (Novotney). The rising number of cell phone related auto accidents shows that this is a dangerous problem, yet many teens feel they can use their phones without it affecting their driving. Cell phone
Alexa England November 16, 2009 Mr. Fred Jordan Should Drivers of Automobiles Be Prohibited Using Cellular Phones Nowadays, cellular phones have become the most important necessaries in our lives. A cellular phone is an electronic telecommunications device with the same basic capability as a conventional fixed-lined telephone but which is entirely portable and does not require a wire connection to a network. But most people using cellular phones do not notice that they can harm anyone at anytime without even realizing it because all they are doing is paying attention to their phone and they are not paying attention to what they are doing! As we notice, drivers of automobiles are always using cellular phones when driving. In my opinion, drivers of automobiles should be prohibited from using all cellular phones!
However, they are wrong because the dangers continue after the call ends. According to Sodhi research, holding the cell phone and talking on the phone is not the main problem, the thinking while and after the conversation is (“Cell Phones Trigger Tunnel Vision”, 2002). These studies and research give great reasons why cars should be a cell phone free zone. Everyone knows the rule that on an airplane they are not aloud to use their cell phone. Surprisingly, the desire of passengers wanting to use their cell phones is increasing (Mobile Communications).
Case Study: Microsoft Smart Watch 1. Is the Smart Watch a good idea? - first there is to state that the idea was very innovative even though parts of the technology were already available on the market Positive: - using the existing platform Msn in order to maintain the flow of information - not too expensive - further developed than the ones of their competitor such as Message Watch or the Internet Messenger Watch - just providing the technology and not launching the produduct on its own Negative: - too many system like the Internet or Cell phones were doing the same job better - the target customer were mostly in possession of either one of the mentioned items - monthly or annual pay - using a brand like fossil who just targets a market with lower income - the time when the product was launched was too late - the watch just was not as fashionable as they predicted - Smart Watch was nothing which was created out of the customers demand - A watch which needs to be recharged on a 3 to 5 day basis? The outcome definitely was that Smart Watch was a bad idea! 2.
Since many companies now require the employees to travel or be in constant reach, smartphones make managing information on the go much easier and they can do much more than the standard cell phone. They require no additional carrying burden because most people carry cell phones anyway. Smartphones also decrease the number of technological devices that professionals like businessmen and doctors need to carry. It was not that long ago that we would see businessmen carrying, a cell phone, a palm pilot, and a pager and now thanks to technological advances the excessiveness is passé. The many applications offered for smartphones allow users to customize their phones with tools that they will use, which have a greater range than the few preloaded applications that come on traditional cell phones.
When talking about cell phones, people would only think of the beneficial things that it brings. Although cell phones have so many benefits, I still believe that cell phones are a threat to our safety, our communication skills, and our education. First, people are so busy with their lives that they might find the difficulty of managing all the essential responsibilities that they have to do within a day. To the amount of saving them time, they
