Technology and effects of the spread of ideas
Ideas have spread for hundreds of years through people by talking to one another, mail, and even over the seas. However, times have changed and as technology gets more advanced people have to find new ways to communicate and have their ideas spread. With smart phones, laptops, and tablets making the spread of ideas not only spread faster and more conveniently but also across oceans. Although ideas are not always important things that change the world, even just as friends talking back and forth has happened easier because of how far technology has come. With smart phones, laptops, and tablets becoming more popular the types of ideas that come from these devices are often different.
Cell phones that used only for call people, as the technology progressed we can now use cell phones to call, email, text, chat, download apps, and take pictures. With these technological advances people can now have their ideas spread quickly and to a lot of people without too much effort. Cell phones and particularly smart phones have the ability to have email, chat, and download apps to spread ideas fast, and can spread through the internet, make the spread of ideas spread not only quickly but greater distances than ever before. Now people can have their ideas spread from somewhere like the United States and send their ideas to somewhere like Japan. This makes ideas spread to a lot of people, because these days everyone has a cell phone, one of the most popular ways to spread ideas.
cell phones are great and can be convenient, they can’t do all the things that a laptop can. A laptop only being a recent technology, has come a long way from it’s beginning from just being able to use simple programs like Microsoft word and a drawing program called paint. Now laptops are able to do more complex programs, like Skype, which gives people the ability to talk and see someone though the internet. With laptops not only can you see someone and tell them your ideas, but with programs like Microsoft word and PowerPoint. People have the ability to have people formally write up and present their ideas to who can do more with the ideas.
Tablets the most recent to the technological world of electronics, Smaller then a laptop but with all the convince of a cell phone. Tablets have become popular with people who travel a lot but need some type of device that they can have their ideas expressed. A tablet has all the apps and fun things that are needed to make the device entertaining, but also some tablets have word and other programs for more work place appropriate programs. Because the tablet is so convenient and portable people can take it anywhere and spread their ideas. A tablet is also more affordable then a cell phone with monthly data charges that often cost $100 or more and a laptop that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. Tablets are the affordable and convenient option for people to spread their ideas.
With so many options in how to have in technology currently in today’s society people have several options of which device they want to use to spread their idea. From the next lifesaving product to just telling a friend about something that happened that day, new devices and technology are becoming more complex and more advanced, and the spread of ideas are now easier than ever before.
