Gone are the days where you used it as a device to only call or text. It has managed to replace many things in our lives: cameras, GPS devices, books, newspapers, cook books, manuals of all kinds of machinery items, dictionaries, maps, just to name some. Social networking sites have become more instrumental in our lives, due to the fact that many social ‘apps’ have been formed on mobile platforms so as to be used on-the-go. Migrants do not have to get home sick anymore due to the availability of many video chatting apps.

Lectures, homework can be easily shared nowadays, which is a common sight among students. With the usage of phones and advanced technologies however, arose a big problem: mobile phone repairs. Mobile phones, due to many reasons like carelessness of the user, software failures and unavoidable circumstances, had to be repaired. The ‘professionals’ to perform such operations however, were limited in number. Thus arose a new field of education, mobile technology. Many job opportunities have been formed as a result of this surge in mobile phone technology. Therefore the traditional way of getting a job, a common occupation handed down generation to generation in a family is a thing of the past. Getting your phone repaired has become very easy nowadays.

Just head to a reputed repairing shop, and you’ll get your inseparable ‘partner’ back in your hands once again.

Being dependent is all good. Or is it?

We humans have become preoccupied by phones that it has become a common thing to use, literally everywhere. It has caused many problems in our lives. Social engaging has become an event which takes place behind a screen. People have become more insecure than ever before due to the fact that their lives have become dependent on devices rather than fellow humans. The mobile phone has to be used with much care, not as you please. We cannot point our fingers at a device as the cause of this. It was us who introduced it in the first place. If everyone uses their phones carefully only for the proper use, then we could all reap good results.
