The world has changed a lot the last 20 years with the development of computers, smart phones, and tablets. Let’s take kids for instance. When I was a kid we were always outside running playing with our friends. If we wanted to talk to are friends we got up and went and found where they were hanging out. Today everyone is connected through the internet if a kid wants to talk to his friend he just gets on Facebook and sends him a message or pokes him. That’s the reason Americans are getting fat and lazy. When I was a kid I would get on my skate board and ride ten miles out to the beach. My son doesn’t want to walk two blocks to see his friend. He will just get on the PlayStation and play games.
It also can be a good thing everything you need is at your fingertips. You can instantly get a hold of anyone you need to. If I can’t find my kid I can just ping his phone and get his location. I’m glad my mom didn’t have that feature. I would have been in a lot of trouble. You can look up any information in a second. Need a chicken recipe. Google it. Need to know how to fix your car. Bing it. Need to know how to fix your computer. YouTube it.
In my daily activities i am always reachable. I use a cell phone all day but only hands free when driving. I use a gps to locate new customer’s warehouses I haven’t been to. Then when I get home you have to check your Facebook and emails at least the ones you didn’t check at work. Now don’t tell my boss I said that.
