30D Blogging Challenge
This week, cellular company Verizon announced plans to start testing an ultra-fast 5G network sometime in the next year. This network will be designed to handle more internet-connected devices, and will allow for such luxuries like the ability to download a 3-D movie in six seconds. My question: How much to we really need our cell phones to do, now or in 2017 (the target US nationwide rollout date)? Does anyone even use their phone to actually make and take calls anymore? What doesn't your phone do that you wish it would?
Wait, I am supposed to make phone calls on my phone? No! That is ridiculous! I got my husband a smart phone for Christmas and got myself one at the same time. I was only going to use it for emergencies. So far I use it to tell me how much water I have drunk in a day, my yoga routine, and the weather. I check my email and facebook on it along with checking in on Writing.com. I play solitaire and Trivia Crack. I read books and listen to music on it. I have the Wegmans app so I can make out my store list and compare prices without leaving the house. I have two, yes two, meditation apps and my phone has my recipes for my nutri-bullet. I know when the International Space Station is flying overhead and when I can best see meteor showers. I can even watch the ISS on a different app fly over my head as I watch it fly over my head! Do you want to know which constellations are in the sky? Well, I have an app for that, too! I watch TED videos on my phone and I have TWO, yup, TWO NASCAR APPS, because one just isn't enough. Oh, I also have two apps for ringtones as well!
I have yet to come anywhere near the limits on my cellphone for usage (I turn off the data and just use Wifi). The person I text the most is Papa Panda and mostly that is to find out if he wants me to pick up snacks on my way home from work. Nope, I don't need anything more from my phone but I am sure that whatever they come up with I will find a way to use it!
