Smart Phones: What Do They Bring to the Business Table?
Smart phones are everywhere, it seems like a majority of the people walking down the street don’t even notice the other person is there; everyone has their gaze directly at their screen. Most people carry their whole lives on this tiny piece of technology and it has shaped the business world, as we know it today. Between being able to send emails and instant messages, these phones are now even able to do “video conferencing” conversations. However, are there any drawbacks to these phones? Are we as a country losing social skills on a one on one basis because of these new “technologic friends”? The business field seems to use smart phones as a tool, even giving them to employees for work use, it seems as though these new devices are changing life as we know it. Smart phones can help you from social networking all the way to unlocking your car with just a tap of the screen. It seems as though these phones can’t go wrong…but things might not always be, as they seem.
