  1. Speaking of technology improvements, I have a different approach. Recently, I was searching for a new phone to replace my blackberry curve, because its trackball does not track a thing sometimes.
    With a numerous option available in the market, I could choose from the big apple to even Garmin-Asus, which is a GPS phone. After reviewing all the advertisements and expects’ reviews, I was thinking to buy a regular phone. I am fully aware that, 4G network is out, and fast. However, no one really knows how fast it is, and how fast it shall be. On the other hand, I was able to access Internet everywhere, at home, at school or at work. I couldn’t find a reason to surf the web with a magnifier.
    All my concern was a simple phone, with long battery life, good reception, and simple design but tough. Guess what, I couldn’t even find one. For all these investments, from 3G network to 4G, and well known walkie talkie to finger hurting messaging, i would awkwardly conclude, that it indeed improves the quality of life.
