Technology is no longer an extension of our lives. It is now entrenched as a part and parcel of our everyday living. Modern technology is the new global culture. It is how we live, work and play. This is true primarily because mobile technology has made technology very personal.
Here are a few examples of how mobile technology is making life easier for you.
One: You can sit in your house and send money from your bank account to your child in school or your family in the village. You can pay all sorts of bills too. The miracle of mobile banking.
Two: Stuck with work at home or at the office? From your phone, you can order a pizza or a proper meal of pounded yam and egusi and have it delivered to you, so you don’t starve to death on the job,
Three: Travelling out of town? You can book your bus ticket or an airport pick-up or drop-off ride right from your mobile phone.
Four: You really, really no longer need a dedicated camera for most of your casual, personal photography needs. Just invest in a good smartphone with a good camera and you are assured of good photographs. And you can edit your images right on the phone and email or share them with a few taps.
Five: You can carry your Bible, Quran or other holy book everywhere you go. All it takes is just one app download and all those books, chapters and verses that you love to quote and recite are no more than a few taps and swipes away from you.
