THE POWER OF A GADGET

Every container becomes tightly packed with what is put in it, except for the container of knowledge for surely it expands.  (Imam Ali a.s)
THE POWER OF A GADGET

BY AJAZ ALI

Today people of the world have a new addition to a thing which changed the behavior of the person. This new addiction is known as the smartphone addiction. The smartphones of today have so many features that the owners of them can hardly seem to put them down just for a second(think over it). These smartphones not only offer the same features that a personal computer would, besides that they also provide a very high level of entertainment. Even with all the capabilities that smartphones offer they still require and the great level of understanding and responsibility.

The purpose of this article is to help others understand the direction of smartphone technology, surprisingly the ways smartphone technology changes society, understand the impact of change and manner in which we live our lives, and how smartphones could potentially create hazardous situations?

The impact of the smartphone on society

People tend to have a busy life in these days due to job, school and personal issues. Therefore, they prefer to have a mobile device which satisfies their needs to stay in touch and be reachable at any time to own needs. A smartphone is one of those mobile devices which allow its users to be able to communicate and exchange information such as text, document, picture, and video through the internet or mobile networks. Smartphones have brought a whole new meaning to the term multitasking. Before, it was impossible to keep connected with co-workers in your office while you were at the grocery store picking up some necessary items or fellows while you are on way to home. You could never have had a three-way business conference while you were doing work or been able to deal with a business client from home while caring for your family. Smartphones have enabled us to do various tasks at the same time and that is a blessing for us. Because of its portable, people seem to be more comfortable using smart phone as a primary communication device than the desktop or home phone. Furthermore, it is an efficient and discrete way to communicate with friends and family members. However, not only these smartphones have positive impacts on our society, but it also carries negative impacts as well; and mobile phone radiation is one of its examples.


There is no little doubt that smartphones have definitely made our lives much more convenient in many ways. However, smartphones have also changed the way that people interact with each other. Smartphones allow its users to be in a conversation without showing their personal expressions. Unlike a face-to-face conversation where one requires direct eye contact, smartphones enable the user to "say things through instant messaging that you wouldn't dare say in face-to-face contact or even on the telephone where you can hear each other's voice" and also an incident happened to me last year when I asked my friend ' are you going home this year to meet family and relatives? then he replied no yaar actually we have smartphone we have video calling and that's enough to see my family and others ' "nonsense act"


That is the reason why people use smart phones for discussion, which they prefer not to have in person. As a result, we are beginning to lose the face-to-face contact that was such an important part of our lives in the past.


In addition, the young generation is too much addicted to the phone that sexual soliciting through the mobile device has now a question for all and That is many children, generally in their teenage years, may be very curious or interested in sexual materials or information and is also a negative impact which smartphones have brought it to users. This issue is increasing at a rapid rate among youth and becoming one of the biggest fear to children and their parents.

"May Almighty Allah (SWAT) keep us on the right path, the path of those upon whom thou hast bestowed favors. Not the path of those upon whom thy wrath is brought down,nor of those who go astray". (AAMEEN)
Smart Phone/mobile device technology while it is a revolutionary breakthrough in communications it also carries hazards that affect our physical bodies, creates health hazards, safety hazards and environmental hazards throughout its use. The most common of the hazards created by use of the mobile device is overuse of the thumb. This generates pain and numbness which ultimately can impede the use of the hand to grasp and hold items and so many as you all know.

   Thank you
