I have several objects that tell stories of my life, but I chose my mobile phone because it has so many things to tell a story about my life. It also does so many things that help me to live a better life, and has memorable things that tell stories.
Some of the positive effects of my cell phone are that it’s easy to communicate and i can multitask. The main usage of the cell phone was to be able to communicate easily. Originally this cell phone was made only to talk to people when they were away from home or their offices, after the years they have been creating new technology that allows people to talk, text, email, browse the internet and have a video conference at the same time.
I know that cell phones have their own negative effects like the high cost, negative social effects and dependency or addiction.The first negative effect is the cost. The newest Smartphones are expensive and their lifetime is short. They are always coming up with new upgrade technology that make people feel they need to buy the newest model.
Also, the cost of the service is expensive; users need to pay a certain amount depending on how many minutes they need or the Internet velocity. In addition users will pay for extra programs, applications, and accessories. Another negative effect is that cell phones can create addiction or dependency.
The cell phone can make people an addict because they feel that they need to have it with them all the time. They can also cause anxiety, for example when you think you lost your phone you can feel stressed out about losing information saved on it. Moreover, it distracts your driving and it can cause an accident. Finally, there are the negative social effects.
Since the Smartphone was created, people don’t communicate face to face as much as before. People isolate themselves because they prefer to talk by phone rather than verbally. Also, people have become very disrespectful because they use the phone in meetings, at church, in class, and eating with friends.
I chose cell phones because it is one of the things that have my favourite pastimes which is to take photographs of the world around me, therefore my phone is filled with photos and screenshots of things that i enjoyed in past years.
In conclusion, cell phones make our life easy by facilitating communication. We also know that they have positive and negative effects. But the positive effects like easy communication and multitasking are stronger than the negative ones like cost, dependency and negative social effects. You can avoid the negative effects by using the phone responsibly.
