In today’s fast paced society you continue to see the advancement of technology giving us more and more great things to make our lives easier. You can’t deny the simple fact that these advancements have really increased our ability to communicate around the globe.
If you take the time to think about it for a little while you can really see how big of a change has come in a very short space of time. One of the best inventions we have at our disposal is the telephone. Many of us still write letters once in a while, but just think how our world would be if we didn’t have telephones and all we used was mail and telegrams. With the phone you can just as easily call someone on the other side of the planet as you can your next door neighbor or a friend in another town.
There is no doubt that telephone communications have drastically improved how we do things and to think that without telephone we would not have the internet like we do now. The longer we are around the more we will see things increase in speed as well as become easier. Even now you can send a text to someone on the other side of the planet and receive an answer back almost immediately.
Not only does this help us with business, but also in other areas such as vacation planning. You now can log online get some information on any part of the world, book your tickets, rooms and even meals while you sit at home. And to think without our sophisticated communication network we would be unable to control air traffic to make this all possible.
As you look at what we have you can’t help, but appreciate the advanced systems that had to put into place to make our lives easier as well as make the world seem like a smaller place. Without our advanced communication it would be impossible to effectively have relations with other countries in a matter like we now do. Can you imagine trying to negotiate a deal with another country using snail mail? It wouldn’t work. It would be quite conceivable to think that without fast communication our lives would be a lot less filled with what is happening around the world. Some might argue that it would be a better place, but you can’t disagree that it would not be as much fun.
I know that every time I use the telephone to talk to a loved one overseas I’m sure happy for the communication system we have in place to allow us to do just that.
