the idea of progress : smartphones

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

The idea of progress

Do you consider the invention of smartphones a progress?

You can talk to your friends at any time of the day (or night!), keep in touch with friends and family abroad, read your emails, see your friends’ holiday photos on Facebook, comment on the news on Twitter, download music, play games………….

But how many hours do you actually spend on your phone? Have you ever counted?

Do smartphones bring people closer through modern technology or are they making us more isolated? Technology and smartphones are not bad, but they can take too much time out of our lives. They can be major distractions that hinder our relationships.

Another disadvantage of smartphones is the amount of waste generated: new models are constantly being released, creating a “need” to have the latest model. But what do you do with your old phone? Do you sell it? Exchange it? Recycle it? Put it in a drawer?

They’re Old Enough to Text. Now What?

When I was a little girl, I had to walk over to a friend’s house if I had something to tell him. Or I could write him a letter. With a pen.

O.K., that’s a slight exaggeration (there were phones, after all). But children today have a plethora of high-tech gadgets they can use to phone and — more commonly — text with one another. The question most parents have is what type of texting gadget is appropriate for which age group.

Some parents have a very simple answer to this query: None. Cellphones and smartphones are for grown-ups only.

Microsoft is about to launch an I-Phone rival

Monday, May 4th, 2009

Microsoft Corp. and Verizon Wireless are in talks to launch a touch-screen multimedia cellphone on the carrier’s network early next year, in an ambitious effort to challenge Apple Inc.’s iPhone, according to people familiar with the matter.

Microsoft is a major player in software for cellphones, but it is working hard to develop a new device that will rival Apple’s.

Microsoft’s project, which is code-named “Pink,” aims to produce a phone that will extend the tech giant’s Windows Mobile operating system, adding new software capabilities. It would also likely include Microsoft’s new Windows Marketplace for Mobile, a store for cellphone downloads along the lines of Apple’s App Store, these people said.
