I was ambivalent towards smartphones when they were first released in the mid to late 2000s.
- I knew that there would be an impulse to constantly browse the internet from wherever you are, be it at home, work, or in waiting rooms at the doctor’s office.
Before people read books, magazines, or had conversations with 1 another. But if you get into a subway automobile in a huge city or on a public bus in a midwestern town, you’ll see nearly almost everyone busy on their smartphones. Some of them play games, others are on social media, and a small minority are really reading the news or random literature. As much as I can complain about smartphones, there have been real advantages over the years with how they have been seamlessly woven into everyday life. GPS and automobile navigation is 1 area in which smartphones have shined. GPS devices used to be extremely costly and were out of the hands of multiple consumers. When smartphones launched with built in navigation applications, abruptly the average consumer had access to GPS while driving their car. Now I can’t even imagine how I got around and found modern companys in dense cities without having GPS in our pocket. I also like how I can order from stores and pizzerias on our iphone without even leaving our condo first. For instance, I can buy cannabis now with a modern app on our smartphone. It’s an ordering service that multiple of the dispensaries in our state utilize, and within seconds I can make an order for delivery or pickup at 1 of the nearby locations. I like the convenience of our smartphone and its features.
