    I think it’s fair to say that over the last century, we as a race have overcome more technological advancements than the rest of the entirety of our existence, and especially in the last few decades, we have undergone so many changes that have completely changed the way we live our lives.

     

    One of the biggest technological changes to happen that has affected our personal lives in a big way is mobile technology. I’m talking about smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart watches and anything else that has branched off from personal computers into the territory of portability and ease of access. It’s here that our personal and business lives have completely been restructured. We are still continuing to adapt to the changes mobile technology has brought to our lives, and clever minds are putting their heads together every second to think of new ways to take advantage of this technology.

     

    Today I’d like to take a look at some of the biggest things that mobile technology has changed in our lives, and how it has made such a big impact on our day-to-day lives.
