It’s crazy much we rely on technology. I recently just had my iPhone 3GS die on me and I was without a smart phone for about 2 weeks. As sad as it seems I was so lost without my iPhone. Usually my first instinct to communicate with someone is to send them a text message. Since my phones text messaging just randomly stopped working, I had to go back to the good old days of calling someone if I wanted to talk to them.
These days it seems as if we take technology for granted. Things could get done much faster if we would just call someone rather than text them and wait for a text message back. Over these past two weeks I had people texting me and then asking me when they saw me why I haven’t responded to their text message. Naturally my friends know that I wouldn’t ignore them and its out of my character to not respond to a text message, even if it is a few hours later. It seems weird to think that communication is now based off of texting or emailing each other.
Lucky for me I was able to get a new iPhone (that I love) that works and that just so happens to be the latest and greatest. I feel back in the loop of communication again. Communicating is more convenient when you are able to text message someone. It has it pros and cons, however now a days we seem to be most comfortable with sending text messages to communicate with others. In general, I classify myself as a very outgoing person and feel like I can carry a conversation with many people. Although for me as well as others, I think its safe to say technology has certainly changed the way we communicate. We all love our iPhones (smartphones) but realistically we should take a step back and communicate in ways we used to, in person or over the phone rather than just through sending a text message.
