Mobile phone and how it’s taken over your life

Updated on October 3, 2012

The mobile phone also known as a cell phone, 70% you the global population have one (2011 5.6 billion phones). My mobile goes with me almost everywhere I go, it’s always in arms reach, I guess I just like to stay connected to my world and the people around me. The other day leaving home for work I totally forgot to pick up my mobile phone as I was going out the door and didn’t realize until it was too late to return home for it. This meant I didn’t have my mobile for about 14 plus hours what with the hours I work. I know this really does sound silly but I did miss my mobile, I wasn’t connected to my world, I didn’t have contact with family and friends. When I finally got home from work I’d missed a number of calls, text messages and Facebook notifications.

Do you have a Mobile (cell) phone

If your 30 plus you may remember what it was like before mobile technology came along and how the world as now changed so much with mobile phones. Like computers and the internet the mobile phone as changed the world and how we stay in touch with each other, how we communicate. It was 89 or 1990 when I had my first mobile phone. It seemed big and bulky at the time but over the years I’ve seen them getting smaller and smaller, but those days they seem to be getting bigger again. People want bigger screens to see all the info the phone throws at them, to be able to read the text clear and see photos and play video.

Do you have a Smart phone one that does almost everything

Back when your mobiles could be used for just only thing and that was to make a phone call, none of the fancy stuff we have today. Yes just a simple phone call and that’s what the mobile phone was first used for before all the technology came along. These days it almost seems endless to what your mobile phone can and will do. Not only does your mobile make the call it was first intend for, but now it can do so much more. Text, GPS, I can read email and surf the internet, it can even read your email to you. Play games, if you wish to play them, I don’t, I’ve done away with my alarm clock, my mobile wakes me. You can use your mobile for banking and even make mobile pavements. I can keep in touch with all my friends online via Facebook, twitter worldwide. I’m never really out of touch no matter where I go. Today’s mobile technology is amazing and seems to be endless to what it can do. It makes me wonder if they can do any more with the mobile phone. I’m sure they’ve explored every possible way of using a mobile, but then again who am I to say so. I sure something new will happen, some new application they will think of for you to use your mobile phone for.

How often do you use your Mobile (cell) phone

The least Samsung galaxy s3 as a fast more powerful processor then the laptop I working on to write this hub which I find amazing. It does make you wonder where all the technology is going to and where it will all end. Only time will tell what you will be doing next with you mobile phone, I sure it will be more than just making a simple phone call it was intended for in the first place.

Thank you for taking time to read my work, take care and have fun

      We do still rely on our phones these days, but the truth is I am just as happy without it. I remember the days when mobile communications was something the Star Trek crew had, when you could go out for the day and not be hassled, or concerned with anything but the task in hand. I love my I-Phone, but definitely can do without it.
