Modern Mobile Technology and its Effect on our Everyday Lives

By: Aiza Gill

The world is living in the midst of the technological era. There is no turning back now, even if you want to. There are so many benefits from the innovative tech coming out onto the market that it hardly seems like you would be able to keep up with it all.

Thankfully, all we are here to discuss today is the amazing impact of modern technology on mobile users. Before getting into that, though, take a minute and consider what you can do with your mobile device and how far those devices have come just within the last decade or so.

Now, with that thought in mind, let’s dig in and look at some of the most substantial impacts technology has upon the mobile industry and the consumers worldwide that use them.

  • Better Communication – Do you remember when you could not make a call without having it connected to a landline? Today you have the ability to call anytime and almost anywhere in the world. Granted, there are still some black-out zones where mobile service does not work, but that will be a thing of the past shortly. The point is that with today’s modern technology, you can call when you need to call or text, which seems to be the preferred way to communicate nowadays.
  • Gaming – Gaming was once something that could only be enjoyed while on some type of game system, but innovative programming has made it possible to carry over almost any kind of game to your mobile device. You can even download and play on gambling sites, some of which will even offer you a way to play free slots just for downloading their app through whichever app store you prefer to use.
  • Shopping – Online stores pop up every day, but you have undoubtedly taken advantage of the big online shopping sites such as Amazon and Walmart. The great thing about this kind of shopping is that you can narrow your search to find exactly what you want without settling for the closest option on the shelf. Plus, you do not have to walk around on a hard concrete floor or wait in line for a cashier to have an opening. As if that is not exciting enough, it is also possible to shop from stores worldwide with no restrictions or limitations.

  • Working – Many apps are designed to help you work or even run your own business. Technology has come so far that it is almost possible to run every aspect of a company from a mobile device, even down to customer service and accepting payments. It seems crazy to some that have had to use rotary phones and snail mail, but the time has come to branch out from the old, implement the new, and give a greater variety of options to work.
  • Health – Health apps, especially the ones that connect to a wrist device, have created a way for people to monitor their health in a way that has never been seen before. The need to visit a doctor for basic checkups may end, which is a relief to those with back medical bills that need to be paid off. Before long, your devices will be connected directly to your doctor so they can monitor and check your vitals without you ever having to visit the clinic or hospital.

There are so many other things that have occurred due to all the technology coming onto the market, and you can bet your bottom dollar that you will see more. As technology becomes more available, you will see AI systems and the Internet of Things come into play even more than it already is.

The great thing about all this tech is that it makes your life much easier, and the bad is that it removes most of the privacy that you used to have. The trade-off is worth it for most, though, with most people not even giving it a second thought.
