According to a survey some time ago, the number of cell phone users in the year 2000 were around one billion. As as of last year, this percentage has increased fivefold, and this tremendous increase in users is mainly recorded in the underdeveloped countries. There was this time when only some members of the elite class had access to this luxury. Now every other kid has a cell phone. From a thirteen year old to a ninety year old, life is unimaginable without a cell- or smart-phone.
Mobile phone companies are benefiting hugely from this sudden boom in business. This upswing of cell phones has led the poor countries to generate revenue. It has made their lives faster and easier, making businesses more successful and more efficient.
But where will it all go?
That’s what I’m wondering lately.
Will computers and automated communication ultimately make human life redundant?
It may sound strange, but over time, I believe it will.
And although we will still be here, I have no idea what we will we be doing.
