The ‘Education-Changing’ Impact of Mobile Devices

It’s really amazing how far technology advanced. Back in the old days when I was still a student, I would literally have to sweat first in finding the right book when I have assignments or tasks to do for school, then I would have to search the book for the topic I was looking for.

Sounds a real hassle right? Well, it had its fair share of fun as well, except for the fact that if you’re lazy, you would definitely have a hard time to get a passing grade.

The first time mobile devices came out, I was frantic and excited about it. However, I never would have thought that it could affect our way of living so much. It was just for fun back then, but as of today, no one could probably get over a day wmobile 1ithout having a great long ‘one-on-one’ time with their mobile devices. It also had its huge share of development when it comes to the education of students today.

Remember what I’ve told you a while ago about students back in the old days? I won’t label it as good or bad, but today, students don’t even need to go out of the house to learn. You would probably see it in some ‘memes’ about graduates thanking ‘Google’ for their success. That’s basically it. Instead of books, they have ‘Google’ nowadays. If that is not enough, they have eBooks today too and many more to help them with their various school agendas.

It doesn’t stop there! When I was searching learning materials on the Internet for my little brother who was just about to go to preschool, I found a site on Preschool Homeschool Curriculum that mentioned the online tool ABC Mouse.  That just amazed me. Now, you could download a homeschool curriculum, and the little ones don’t need to go to school to learn anymore! I don’t know if it’s possible for higher education, nonetheless, it is still something that’s awesome.

What just saddens me is that whenever I go out of my house and take a look at the surroundings, or go into a mall, I would see teenagers and even younger ones, engrossed with their mobile devices – tablets, mobile phones and many more private gadgets they have.

With the advances of mobile devices today – various games (offline and online), social networksmobile2 and many more, I bet that they even have more time playing and chatting with their friends rather than studying. That’s just the truth about this world nowadays. Yes, it makes their studies a lot easier because searching is just a couple of clicks away from them, but back then, even though it’s a hassle, we were still focused in our studies.

Today, when a student is searching for his school assignments, there are probably some detours like when a friend chats with him or if his ‘Clash of Clans’ game has finished training troops, and many more. I just believe that these advances may have pushed education back a little in the ‘list of important things’ for children today, blinding them of what’s really essential.

How Smartphones Changed Our Lives  

You know how I spend my mornings? Checking my emails and social networks. I check my smartphone even before I take my first sip of coffee. Just like this morning, I grabbed my phone the first moment my eyes opened because I was tasked to check out the website.

Call it good or bad, but smartphones really did change the way we live. Personally, the only issue I have with it is that I’m finding it hard to sleep at night, although I’m very tired already because I was hopping from one blog to another, checking outpost 6-2 articles such as the good morning snore solution reviews.

Smartphones make it easier for us to communicate and meet up. Now, we can text or call our friends five or 10 minutes away from our meeting place. If we are late, we can tell them so. If we are arriving early, we can tell them to hasten up preparing for the meet-up too.

Mobile technology also reduced the moments of us getting bored. While we’re waiting for our driver’s licenses and paying bills, we can check out our social media accounts through our smartphones or we can even play interactive games with our friends such as Candy Crush, Clash of Clans, etc. You can check out the stock market too (if you’re an investor), reply to emails and do your work if you’re a freelancer like me.

Smartphones let you to capture every moment of your waking life as well. The camera allows you to take videos in slow mode or in time lapse. That’s the beauty about having smartphones—there’s no need to bring digital cameras or SLRs anymore because the smartphone has a very abled camera already.

post 6The smartphone is an all-in-one device. It’s a phone, an address book, a computer, a media player, a game console, a camera, a compass, a map, a video recorder, an editing device, a music player, a GPS device and even a flashlight. Can you imagine any other device that can do all these things?

Smartphones make us available all the time. Now, it depends on you if that’s a good or bad thing. I don’t want people calling me all the time, so this is clearly a disadvantage for me. People, however, who need to be in communication with everyone at all times may see this as a benefit. Clearly, smartphones have changed the way we live our lives—if it’s for the better or the worst depends on you.

The Top 5 Advantages of iPhone 6 Plus

post 5When the iPhone 6 Plus was launched in the market, I was in New York City for a short vacation to see my family. You can only imagine how long the line was at the Apple Store in 5th Avenue. It was crazy. The weather was terrible, but everyone was so excited about the new phone that they didn’t even notice it.

Listed here are the top five advantages of the iPhone 6 Plus based on my experience and my friends’ feedbacks with the smartphone:

1. The screen is amazing.

The 5.5-inch screen with HD Retina display is superb. It has crisp colors and the capacitive display has pixels of up to 1080×1920. It also has a shatterproof glass, which makes this phone perfect for those might be a little too rough with their phones, like me. I recently had to replace my old phone with the iPhone 6 Plus because I broke the thing after dropping it while I was setting up my paddle board from HTTP://

2. It has a powerful processor.

The iPhone 6 Plus has a new A8 chip and dual-core 1.4GHz Cyclone processor. It delivers more power even though it has a larger display. It also has an M8 coprocessor that can deal with data at a faster speed.

3. Apple Pay makes it convenient to 5 -2

The Apple Pay is pretty impressive. It is decidedly more secure than what Samsung is currently offering, and it doesn’t store nor share your data to retailers. The only problem I have with Apple Pay is that not much retailers can use it now because of the new NFC technology.

4. Battery life is longer.

The main problem we all have about smartphones is the battery life. Apple solved this through the iPhone 6 Plus. It has a stronger power supply that allows you to have a talk time of up to 24 hours. Imagine that! This means you can watch YouTube videos and communicate with your friends without power issue.

5. High-tech camera for photo enthusiasts.

The iPhone 6 Plus has an 8MP camera with 3264×2448 pixels, optical image stabilization, phase detection autofocus and dual LED (dual tone) flash. The photos can be transformed into a slideshow, too, thanks to a slew of options with the camera.

I guess my only issue with the phone is that it did not infuse a dust-proof and water resistant display like Sony did with their phones. It’s important that a smartphone can now be used in water or at least near splashes of water, so those vacation photos can be more memorable.

My Passion in Mobile Modding

If there’s one thing I learned about Newest technology in the past years it’s that I cannot assume everyone knows what I am talking about. It’s not that I talk nonstop about technology, modding and smartphones, it’s just that it’s my life passion to know the latest about these things, so I tend to geek out every time the topic comes up.

cell_phone_modding_640_13I actually try not to talk about it as much but every time my friends see me, it’s like they have automatic “on” button on their problems about smartphones and other gadgets. That’s probably why I decided to come up with this blog. It will help me address most of the “frequently asked questions” my friends and family throw at me whenever there’s a gathering.

Although this blog will focus on modifying your smartphones, there will be a few topics in between that will talk about some other issues technology face today.

We have become so dependent on technology, on our smartphones that it’s hard to see a day in my life without me glued in front of the computer screen. I text a hundred times each day. I get several calls between 8AM to 8PM. Even before I sleep, my eyes are glued on my smartphone, chatting with friends or stalking people on Facebook.

That’s why smartphones have become an integral part of who we are. Can we ever function without our trusty smartphones? That’s how Mobile technology changed our lives. The first thing I do every morning is to check my emails and my text messages. But instead of opening the computer and waiting for the browser to be launched, I can now check all of these things while lying down and tapping the screen of my smartphone.

I can now see why people would usually ask me questions about their smartphones whenever they see me: we want to understand how this functions, how it works, how we can protect it from malfunctioning. Our dependency on technology is based also on how we understood it.

Since men are natural leaders, it’s too difficult for us to accept that we have become so dependent on something we barely understand or something we cannot change or influence. However, technology is not as evil as some see it to be. With guys like me advocating for a simpler and easier way of understanding it, I think there’s still a chance that people will be able to use technology without trying to compete with it.
