IT SEEMS QUITE SADDENING TO SEE PEOPLE SITTING TOGETHER , FACING EACH OTHER YET NOT TALKING ! NOW THAT SNOT THE ONLY ISSUE , PEOPLE DONT TAKE TALKING IMPORTANTLY NOW THAT ITS THE AGE OF COMMUNICATION , SINCE WE HAVE COUNTLESS , STIMULATING AND INTELLECTUAL CONVERSATIONS TO START TALKING ABOUT . RATHER PEOPLE SEEM TO ENJOY EVERY BIT OF THE NEW TECHNOLOGIES
LIKE THE COMPUTER FOR AN INSTANCE , EMAIL IS USED MORE THAN TALKING , EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING TO THE PERSON SITTING TWO DESKS AWAY FROM YOU ! HOW LAZY IS THAT ?? PHONES ARE USED LESS FOR TALKING , MORE FOR TEXTING , WHICH NOW SEEMS TO ME AS A USELESS TREND ! THOUGH WE KEEP COMING ACROSS COMMERCIALS WHICH HIGHLIGHT THE LOW CHARGES FOR PHONE CALLS .. "BBM" FOR AN EXAMPLE IS A VIRUS PRESENT IN THE HEAD OF THE COMMON BLACKBERRY USER . "WATSAPP" FOR THE COMMON IPHONE AND BB USER , "FACEBOOK" FOR EVERY 'COMMON' USER !! EVEN AN EIGHT YEAR OLD HAS AN ACCOUNT ON FACEBOOK ! WHERE WERE THE RESTRICTIONS THEN ? THEY ARE SO DISTRACTING ! I DO BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN BE USED TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR FAR AWAY RELATIVES AND FRIENDS BUT ITS HARMFUL IF YOU USE IT IN EVERY 5 MINUTES TO CHECK WHAT YOUR FRIEND IS UP TO ! YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW BUT EARLIER , KIDS USED TO CRAVE FOR AN ICE CREAM OR A DOLL HOUSE ON THEIR BIRTHDAYS . BUT NOW , ALL THEY WANT IS AN IPHONE , IPAD , PS3 ETC ... WHERE DID THE OLD DAYS GO ?THEY WANT IT TO BE THE LATEST , THEY DONT CARE TO USE THEIR 3 MONTH OLD IPHONE 4 CAUSE THEIR CLASSMATE JUST GOT AN IPHONE 4S . AND THE IPHONE 4S USER WOULDNT CARE TOO MUCH ABOUT THROWING THAT PHONE INTO THE GUTTER AND BUY THE NEW IPHONE 5 ! AND WE CANT JUST BLAME THE KIDS , WHY DOESNT ANYONE BLAME THOSE ANNOYING YET ALLURING COMMERCIALS PRESENTED ON TV'S AND BILLBOARDS EVERYDAY ? IT IS THE COMPANIES AND THEIR PROMOTERS THAT HAVE FAILED US . IF THEY DIDNT LAUNCH A NEW PRODUCT IN THE MARKET , LIFE WOULD HAVE CARRIED ON EASILY WITHOUT ANYONE ENVYING ANOTHER . THESE PHONES AND COMPUTERS ARE DELETERIOUS TO THE CORE
ALONG WITH THE YOUNG MINDS , THEY CAN CREATE MINOR WARS . WITH THE CURIOUS YOUTH , THEY TURN OUT TO BE AS PAINFUL AS BEING STABBED IN THE HEAD . AND THATS WHAT ITS DOING , ITS SLOWLY DAMAGING YOUR BRAIN . BUT THESE ALSO ARENT THE ONLY ISSUES , THERE IS CYBER-BULLYING, BLACKMAILING AND DIRTY MMS'S THAT ARE LEAD BY THESE PHONES AND A YOUNGSTER INCHARGE OF IT .
SO SHOULD THERE BE AN AGE LIMIT TO THE USAGE OF PHONES ?
IT SEEMS PARADOXICAL THAT THE DECLINE OF GOOD COMMUNICATION IS OCCURING AND THE RISE OF TEXTING IN WHAT CAN BE DESCRIBED AS THE AGE OF COMMUNICATION .
