Headline May 04, 2016/ ''' MOBILE PHONE : THE GROWING DEEP ROOTS '''



STILL   -*CLOSE TO SIX BILLION*   mobile phone users don't own a smartphone. Another 3.2 billion people don't own a mobile device at all.

The mobile revolution is here but there are still many out there who have yet to experience its benefits. We've only just begun:

One hears inspiring stories from so many other countries: .

Teachers, like Edna Cas and Imelda Pontejos from Ligao East Central School in the Philippines, have brought lessons to life in the classrooms by downloading multimedia content via smartphones using the-

*Text2Teach*   programme and linking it to television screens to show to their students.    

'' I CAN'T LIVE without my mobile phone! '' is what I often hear people as they lament about how mobiles have become-

An indispensable part of their lives. The blurring a personal and work lives brought about by the device are posing challenges to many.

The all so common sight of heads bent, eyes staring intently at mobile screens and fingers busy tapping away repeats itself across major cities around the world. 

Whenever there is a moment to spare while on the train, taxi or waiting a in a queue, people busy themselves with their phones even while out on a date!.

Such unhealthy obsession with mobile devices is disrupting how we appreciate the little things in life or miss the moments that matter. 

The truth is that technology overall should be seen as a tool to enhance our way of living and not as backfill for the good things that we as humans naturally enjoy.

Mobile phones have certainly made a significant impact on our lives, but I truly believe it's for the better, says Neil Gordon the Vice President for Sales at Nokia, and adds:

I again repeat, that Mobile phones have certainly made a significant impact on our lives,but I truly believe it's for the better.

It's changed the way we communicate, whether for work or play. We are less constrained by time and geographical locations. With a mobile device, I can dial into conference calls while struck in a traffic jam, or reply to urgent e-mails while on the go.

I can send a text message or share photos and videos with friends who living in the same country. My phone calendar keeps my life organized 
and even Facebook, Twitter, and instant messaging are now accessible from mobile devices.

Smartphones are more than just a means to stay connected; they are also a key source of entertainment. The game of Snake was one of the first mobile games that I got hooked on way back in the 1990s.

Today, the market's flooded with mobile apps  -we're so spoilt for choice! And it's not just games. 

There are apps to help you find your way around literally anywhere, apps that you listen to your favorite music, apps to book cinema or concert tickets, and even apps that teach the alphabet to toddlers.  
And then Farmers, like Edi Sugara Purba in North Sumatra, Indonesia, now have access to weather information critical to crops.

With the information gained through the mobile phones, Edi can quickly decide how to best protect the coffee and oranges he grows. He also gets information on crop prices to help him negotiate better and decide on how to price his crops competitively.

Who would have thought that mobility could effect such monumental change? It shouldn't really be a surprise though. Information is greatly empowering.

So, with the impetus of  technology giants like Google, Apple, Facebook, Samsung, now driving innovations and inventions, just about every service and function may soon become a relic of the very recent past.

With respectful dedication to the Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. See Ya all on !WOW!   -the World Students Society and the Ecosystem 2011:
