not to forget the older one is watching tv .. no one is interested to talk to each other.. seems like cell and Internet has turned out to be harmful.. ..in my utter disdain this was unexpected ..where are we heading to.. I think I am not only one who has jumped the shark..
In offices ..web conferencing..live chat at customer service.. it seems ..A technology boom ..
people say we feel connected to our relatives and friends by technology But I say its everyone seems to be handicapped, do we ever happen to see the humans in actual? Skype is another strong media of talking, one of my friends who recently got engaged in Pakistan is through "Skype ". it was all through chat and seeing each other online.
One teen parent shared with me that she always has to text kids when calling them for dinner downstairs in the dining area as they are very active on texts and they listen better if she texted them to their respective rooms. ..It was kind of amusing for me...... mom needs to smarter now :)Most of the time I see people lost in their messages and texting even while driving..
last week in California one of our cousins had a car crash while texting in car .. the car was total.. But fortunately he is saved,,, the whole bunch of cars hit each other on highway due to this tiny piece (of shit)called cell phone!
smart phones and tablets
.. there were times not long ago when families played .. antakshri or had some fun games in their living room after dinner.. but today smart phones make everyone retire in their beds and browse .. through these phones tablets making best use of them..
..I would like to add here ..there are some benefits too people who dint know about computers have an easy xcess through phones ..like one of our aunts who is 70 yrs .. I see her on Facebook all the time ..sharing her personal stuff with her college friends .. she has every update what is happening around and which online stores are best ..their return policies and how to print coupons online or what's happening next month in the city. She is happy and busy no time to gossip being a mother-in-law..she reads articles of her interest on her ipad .. learns new recipes from you tube ... I am happy to see the transformation ..when first I saw her in 1997 and if I see her today she entirely a different person ..smart , intellectual , confident , kind and giving .. thanks to technology I must say!!(in her case)
..Technology has taken us made us like robots..
recently one of my cousins brought a cap with inbuilt head phones this can be attached to your iPhone and you are hands -free ..But I will not be surprised when one day we will see caps with batteries too and men functioning through head gears.. we have already reduced our mobility by .. leaving the pen and pencil.. less walking and more driving.. less of manual work and more of gadgets ..
we are not far from era when ..
food will on table through conveyor belts, clothes will be out of dryers through remotes.. Vacuum is used by robots ( this already came inn).. and we jus need to
