Getting personal with mobile

Posted: July 14, 2007 in Mobility

The Times of India print edition, carries a story today, which talks about the impact mobile phones and electronic organizers are having in everyone’s life:

Can’t remember life before mobile phones? Chances are you’ll also struggle to recall your home phone number and family birthdays.
According to a survey released on Friday, the boom in what Britons call simply “mobiles” and other portable devices that store reams of personal information has created a generation incapable of memorising simple things.
A quarter of those polled said they couldn’t remember their landline number, while two-thirds couldn’t recall the birthdays of more than three friends or family members.
The tech-savvy young fared
worse than older people. The under-30s remembered fewer birthdays and numbers than the over-50s, according to the survey. Two-thirds said they relied on their phone or electronic organiser to remember key dates.

It’s a fact. Today life without a mobile device is unimaginable.
