This generation is the first to have the full force of technology to choose from when it comes to mobile phones. Previous generations had none of this. The first mobile phone was created in 1973. As the years have rolled by, the generation that saw this development might have been forgiven for thinking that the brick-like mobile wasn’t going anywhere. Now it’s become our source of entertainment, information and communication. Many of us would suffer severe mental trauma if that were ever to happen. What did people do before they were able to contact King Communication and search for a Vodafone Store Ireland.
They used landlines. Most people had a landline phone in the home that was connected to an analogue network. It had the speaking clock and weather forecasts but otherwise, it was just a way to connect with people. If you were out and about then you could also use a handily placed phone box if it wasn’t vandalised and rendered useless.
We have grown to rely on our mobiles to such a great degree that it’s almost impossible to think about life without them. The panic when one is lost or is about to run out of charge is incredible. In one famous case, someone walked on stage, mid-production, because they had seen a plug socket as part of the set, which was fake. They duly plugged in the mobile and looked mystified as to why it wasn’t charging.
