Telephones : a Real Gift of Modern Times

By: Dennis Jaylon

Telephones can be termed as one of the greatest gifts of modern technology. Its effectiveness cannot be undermined. It has indeed brought about a revolution in the way communication was carried out. Imagine the day when telephones were not invented. Imagine the difficulty that one used to undergo before a piece of information can be delivered.

It has not been long when people relied on letters to share their feelings or send a piece of information. And it was days before one actually received the letters. In many cases, letters were received after the event had taken place. Needless to say that it lead to frustration and anger of not receiving the information on time.

It was this anger that fueled the need of inventing a device which would facilitate communication, and make people living at distant places communicate as if they are sitting with each other across the table. These thoughts were worked upon and telephones invented, which fitted the bill perfectly.

It completely transformed the way communication was carried on. The days when one piece of information took days to reach its destination became history. Now people can chat as if they were face to face with each other - needless to say that it became an immediate hit. People were simply overjoyed of being able to talk to their friends and relatives who were hundreds of miles away.

The initial spate of success gave way to further improved versions of telephones. Telephones with every transformation became more useful and fashionable, to the extent that today a time has come when phones can actually be carried in the pockets. Not only this, phones today are not limited to making or receiving calls alone, instead they have now wide range of features programmed into them, which really has transformed it into a multi-utility phenomenon.
