Communication and Technology


I am standing in a queue at the supermarket. The woman in front of me is talking on her mobile while the shop assistant is filling her bags. I’ll say something if she doesn’t stop soon. No, I won’t. My phone’s ringing now. If it’s my boyfriend, I’ll tell him he’s late again! ‘Oh, it’s my Mum. Well, I’m just…’
Why are we so addicted to mobile phones? There are now over forty million people in Britain with mobiles and if the present trend continues, ever man, woman and child in Britain will soon have one – or two, or three!
They can be expensive and are possibly bad for us. You can spend a fortune if you use your mobile a lot. According to some scientists, if we go on using mobiles, we’ll cook our brains. Some people even say that radiation from mobiles causes cancer. Psychologists say we are becoming dependent on mobiles. Dr. Oliver James talks about ‘phoneliness’ – in modern society we are lonely, so if people ring us up or send us text messages, we feel wanted.
