If you’re the average Internet User (In India), the first time you heard of communication technology was around 4th standard.
And since you’re reading this article, you’re also most likely well acquainted with communication technology, especially its pros and cons.
Ten years ago, if someone told you that much of your social life would revolve around a thin metal brick about the size of your palm, you would call him an idiot.
However, communication today is vastly different from communication a decade ago, especially since the rise of the smartphone and the internet. The way we consume information and our exposure to knowledge in the world has changed drastically. [Even though most of us prefer cat videos and memes]
Life in schools, colleges, offices and even the decision making of the government changed drastically.
Digital diplomacy is a thing now.
Opinions now don’t take months to reach to the mass, in fact now, your opinion and views about something might just need a little typing and voila.
To add more even education is not what it was before.
Only yesterday we used to store everything inside the 1336 gm tissue lying between our shoulders, but now, we do that inside the fingernail-sized memory units of our phones. (Which more convenient I guess).
There is no end to the spellbinding hangover of smartphone intoxication.
Silicon, glass, plastic, metal and all other components of the smartphone are just nothing more than the combination of elements on the periodic table if they don’t have a soul in them.
Android, literally something that resembles the human form.
Though physically it doesn’t resemble me or you but on the scale of smarts, it does.
Android is the soul of the modern era.
It has that same intriguing influence that souls have on us, transforming our phones from worthless chunks of metal to the all-powerful smartphone.
Now it is this smartphone powered with android which holds the key to the evolution of our generation.
“It’s not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change”- Charles Darwin (you’ll remember him if you studied properly)
The future is standing next door and all we need is the will and curiosity to explore.
Now like your brain has components, there are components of the so-called smartphone. The core, which is the basic unit like the limbic system of our brain, (okay that was a bit overboard, the core is more like an engine, which runs your smartphone). From single to dual to the quad to octacore, lightning fast and reliable.
Just like having a bright mind and body would be useless without the power of response and communication, our phones are useless without the ability to communicate.
From the days when we measured data transfer in kilobytes to megabytes and now gigabytes, communication networks have always been an integral part of our lives.
Simple greetings sent through excruciatingly slow connections have now transformed into face to face conversations,
Imagining the game-changing, the effect of the smartphone would’ve been impossible if not for the network that connects us.
Going from G to 2G to 3G and now 4G, we have sailed to the world with limitless possibilities with the lighting fast speed of the internet with us. And with 4G the span of our wings has increased and we are now ready to take flight.
We all have witnessed the magic of the smartphone, and there’s still a lot more to come.
Information is the solution of every problem in today’s world, and with the smartphone in our hands, nothing seems impossible.
