Remember way back when, what life was like before the advent of the Smartphone just 20 short years ago? Do you remember waking up to the voices on an alarm clock radio? You just knew that today was going to be a good day when that song happened to be playing when you woke up! Speaking of clocks, do you remember when people actually forgot to manually turn their clocks back and arrived an hour late?! Getting lost was both fun and a great excuse for being late, is it even possible to get lost now?
I could go on and on, and I will! Dating is so easy now, you can just Google your date and find out where they live, where they work, who their friends are, if they’ve been arrested, if they owe anyone money, plus no one can lie about their age anymore! Remember when researching a topic meant reading chapters of books or encyclopedias written by legitimate experts who had spent most of their life devoted to that subject? Now we have comments, blogs (can you even cite those??) and news articles that we see on the internet – because obviously if you see it on the internet it must be true.
The mobile phone has had quite an impact on the business world as well. Consider the near extinction of camera stores, watch manufacturers, movie rentals, record stores, print media, and book stores to name a few. Travel agencies are the new pay phones and the USPS is the new UPS.
You can earn a master’s degree, find a job, work that job, grocery shop, even get married, and raise virtual children right from your couch. Thanks to your mobile phone, you can conceivably live your entire life without ever seeing the light of day. The mobile internet certainly has changed the world as we know it!
