“The cell phone”
Technological advancements made a tremendous impact on the lives of the people of the 20th century. These dynamic changes in technology are what improve life. One major technological advancement that has greatly changed lives is the cell phone. This piece of technology has revolutionized the way in which we stay connected with friends and family, it increased the amount of safety that we have with us and also saves us a lot of time. Cell phones have vastly changed the way we communicate today. A cell phone can be all you need for communicating. Now instead of going over to my friend’s house and catching up on life I can just text her daily and always know what’s going on. Even though we lose face-to-face contact-- and some may say it kills socialization—but it still allows us to have contact with a person 24/7. Since we can be more connected we are able to know what is going on in each other’s lives and have a stronger friendship. We are able to be in contact with everyone no matter where we are or how far we are. If somebody takes a long distance trip you can just call them and have the same kind of conversation you would in person. This helps us not to grow apart when a loved one goes away and still be a part of their lives. It allows us to know how what goes on in different parts of the world and how our friends live different lifestyles. Cell phones increase personal safety by providing an easy means of contacting others during an emergency. If our car breaks down in the middle of the freeway we can just call a tow truck and he can come rescue us. You can also save lives with cell phones. If somebody has an
emergency and needs the paramedic you can just pull out your cell phone and call 9-1-1 and they will be over in minutes to help the person out. This allows us to feel safe and secure all the time...
