My most used version of technology would have to be my cell phone. It can call, text, and I can go on the Internet. I use it more than anything else because it’s convenient and doesn’t cost that much. My phone is a huge part of my life and I couldn’t live without it.
Cell phones have come a long way from where they are today. In 1960, the world’s first partly automatic car phone system was launched in Sweden. In 1962, a more modern version called Mobile System B was launched, which was a push-button telephone and used transistors in order to enhance the telephone’s calling capacity and improve its operational reliability. Martin Cooper, a Motorola researcher and executive is considered to be the inventor of the first practical mobile phone for handheld use in a non-vehicle setting. If only he knew how important his invention would be in the future.
Cell phones have numerous features that come important and can help in specific situation. You can call or receive calls and you can be on the phone with more than one person. Texting is typing an instant message that is used sometimes because they only have to say one thing or don’t want to call. Phones also let you get on the Internet and check your e-mail or any social networking site. Cell phones also come with important apps such as stopwatch, timer, alarm, calculator, and many more.
Cell phones to me are only luxuries. I begged my mom to get me a cell phone and she always said when I can pay for it. I always wondered what it would be like to have my own phone and be able to do whatever I wanted with it. My fourteenth birthday my dad gave me his phone that had unlimited everything and all I had to worry about was my grades. So stuck on my phone my grades dropped dramatically and my phone was confiscated. I kind of knew that my grades were horrible but so stuck on my phone I lied numerous times to keep my mom at bay. Now I have to wait until my next opportunity which won’t be anytime soon.[/size]
