Mobile Media Entertainment

By: Joel Peter Vitug
Technology re-identified is theattempt to coalesce tools into one mini gadget. We can say that technology isan?evolution in a hurry.?I wouldn't agree that laziness fatheredinvention. Humans?are just a convenience-hungry creature.?

It's really tricky to tell whichamong the latest gadgets is the newest, as new gadgets swarm the markets in analmost daily basis. We can say that the entertainment?value?of each concept-createdgadget dominates pragmatic reasons. Or, that the primary rationale of most gadgetsthat is communication has been redefined to make communication more fun.

It is amazing to trace how man hasimproved his means of communication. He started scribbling in cave walls, haslearned to use figures and icons to convey a message and he has later learnedto send those messages using trained pigeons. And because man is ever hungry toleave a more expedient life, he never ceased to advance. And man has workedarduously to develop his communication equipment.?But besides man'singenuity and being convenience-hungry is man's love for fun. And man's lovefor pleasure dates back from the prehistoric era when?people go tocoliseums to watch feisty gladiators,?to these days when south and NorthPole can easily converge. Maybe because enjoyment is tantamount to convenience.

And we are man!

We?seek entertainmentubiquitously. We enjoy a cab ride and?a coffee break?when a good songis played on the background, we?enjoy a bus ride if it?has atelevision that makes us oblivious of the congested traffic, and on our restdays we would never miss movie marathons or the never ending political ruckusfeatured in news and current affairs programs. And of course, we would neverfail to send text messages?to friends, chat with them or talk with them onwebcam. It's always fun to?exchange greetings?with friends after aweek-long killer work, don't you agree?

It is staggering that technologyhas become both a necessity and a?source?of entertainment.

We are now living the touch screenage, a fast-paced lifestyle. We have become busier people and time has becomepriceless times three. The things in our must-do list can no longer beaccommodated by the 24 hours in one day, and stress has become the most commonmalady. But as always, technology has provided an answer.

Technology has boosted the doodadsthat most of us are already accustomed to. Let's take?the cell phone as anexample.?The cell phone?that was once a plain SMS and call?gizmohas improved to become a multi-media capable device. Such enhancements are muchappreciated by company executives and other white collar personnel, but let'snot care about what they do with Bluetooth, infrared, video files and WI-FI.Not many of us understand the stock market and banking and finance. But we allknow how to pose in front of camera. And we are all addicted to uploading ourpictures in friend-finding sites. And we can't stop downloading the latestmusic video of our favorite boy band or the song of that sexy sultry singerwhose face you first saw in the JPEG file that an acquaintance has sent you inMMS.

It will be time-consuming if weneed to be seated in one place to do our technical?stuffs. Thus, it isonly proper to commend technology for coming up with mobile services, specialmention to mobile entertainment. Now, we may not be seated in front of a webcambecause 3G allows us to make video calls, we can already chat on our cellphones and even surf the internet. We don't have to be at home, in front of ourTVs to watch a much-talked boxing match [because the same thing can also bedone on our cell phones]. We can forget about?our?bulky Walkmans orDiscmans and just stuck in our ears our mp4's earpiece. Wouldn't you want yoube encouraged to lose weight if your jogging shoes have a built-in mp4? Andhey, the last time I checked on a tech’s must-buy list is an mp4 witha camera. If there is anything more chic than it, I wouldn't wonder.

We are all technology aficionadosFree Articles,or if not just practical people relying on technology to make our jobs easier.But I remember a line in a Rudyard Kipling poem: Machines are no more thanchildren of our brains... But wow! What amazing children our brains have!
