The mobile age is upon us, and smart phones have become an integral part of our society. Mobile communication devices provide us with a constant and instant connection to the world, and we’re becoming increasingly dependent upon them to assist with everyday tasks.
Smart phones offer us a means of convenience. We can share our lives, experiences, and adventures through social media apps or travel to places near and far guided by GPS navigation. In addition, several technologies are emerging that will allow us to use the chips in our phones to make purchases, making that smartphone all the more invaluable. Technologies like Google Wallet, ISIS Mobile Commerce Network, and Venmo are here—and they’re changing the way we look at our phones.
