Technology – A Generation’s Greatest Contribution

jim-cell-phone.jpg About 20 years ago, ATMs put cash on every street corner and my hunger for convenience became insatiable.
The technology of the 21st century has now put a handheld computer in the palm of my hand and called it a cell phone.

Could cell phones be considered the greatest invention of modern times? I would argue, yes.

Consider the power in your hand that we are already beginning to take for granted.

With a cell phone you can:
  • Check available balances in your accounts
  • Find the local movie times
  • Find the closest hardware store
  • Get directions to a destination from your current location
  • Stay in touch

I’m a phone call away from a friend, no matter where I am in the world. I can post pictures to a website, text message an address to a lost friend, update my blog, access my Facebook page, and follow new Twitter friends from across the street or across continents. With my cell phone I have wireless, instantaneous access to the world!
So, I ask you, is there a better modern invention than the cell phone?
