In the fast paced society that we are all prone to in this day and age, there is seemingly a smaller amount of time that can be allocated for an individual task. Whether that task includes something that needs to be accomplished at work, or simply getting into shape by exercising regularly; we are far too busy and cram too many activities into our daily schedules. As a result of this, technology has been advancing on a seemingly exponential basis with the goal of making things easier in general. A particularly outdated example of this lies in the concept of email, allowing messages to be mailed instantaneously to the recipient to help reduce the amount of time typical mailing takes. Additionally, cell phones are being released with drastically more abilities than previous models, making them an all-in-one accessory for some people.
Technology is growing at an extremely rapid rate, and it can be seen in all aspects of life. Evidence of the growth and widespread dependence on pieces of technology and particularly, mobile devices can be seen with America’s youth. Ten years ago, it was uncommon to see children with cell phones, even those who were in Junior High and High School. However, fast-forwarding to current times, it is uncommon not to see a kid walking down the street with a cell phone, even those as young as first graders. WiFi internet is being installed in droves of commercial and industrial institutions allowing more and more people wireless access wherever they go. As a result of this, people with tablet personal computers and laptops can gain internet access virtually anywhere they go. These types of advancements vastly increase the overall communication infrastructure, and open the door to new possibilities in business, with more retailers moving the vast emphasis of their marketing endeavors to the online world.
In all, technology is something that is becoming the basis for our society. More people are becoming dependent on mobile devices and the ease of access to the internet; and advancements are being made on a consistent basis.
