The Constant Battle of Parenting Teens Teenagers permanently attached to their cellular devices has become a naturally occurring phenomenon in today’s technologically advanced world. It almost seems impossible to separate teenagers from their phones, and these gadgets are not left idle either. It is a rare occurrence indeed for a teen to call another’s home phone for any reason. However, before texting was around, teenagers continually rang each other’s home lines, and parents frequently fumbled to take messages appropriately for their teenagers. In his essay “Handling Teen Calls”, Gary Lautens exposes the harsh realities associated with being a parent of a teenager in modern society through his recounts of fumbled attempts at taking phone messages for his son correctly.

When nanobots are finally perfected, you can be sure that one of the first things they will do is make new and better nanobots. Technologies with this property of perpetual self-accelerated development--sometimes termed "autocatalysis"--create conditions that are unstable, unpredictable and unreliable. And since these particular autocatalytic technologies drive whole sectors of society, there is a risk that civilization itself may become unstable, unpredictable and unreliable. Perhaps what civilization needs is a NOT-SO-FAST button. Proponents of technological determinism make a strong case for letting self-accelerating technologies follow their own life cycle.
While I'm sure all these devices have good intent, they have ultimately taken focus away from the road and put more focus on other things like taking a picture a posting it on Facebook or stopping at the drive thru to eat while on the go. We have traded safety for convenience, and common since for smart phones. Yet, as obvious as these hazards have become we still continue to ignore the fact that one thousand people a year are killed in auto accidents due to cell phone use and one of those thousand could easily be me, my brother, my best friend, or someone else I love. Why do we do this? Most people just feel invincible, particularity young people.
With the growing anti-wait lifestyle of human nature many are trying to make every spare minute of their life productive.

In the modern world, one can’t go a mere five minutes without seeing some form of a smartphone around them, whether it’s advertised in media or we see with our own eyes. Phones have created a new simplicity in our lives, one that the average user can’t go without. For the newcomer to technology, this can all seem overwhelming. Most likely the person doesn’t know where to start looking for a smartphone. My friends Scott and Justin often argue over which kind of phone offers more.
Instead of having to use multiple different devices, you could your cell phone for all your schooling needs. Many teachers aren't aware of all the abilities they could be utilizing from cell phones and I believe it would make teaching a lot easier. Many jobs today have something to do with technology. With every new invention of technology a new job is created and a new subject is in need of being learned.
