A new day has dawned in this world of ours that has now become so accustomed to the unnatural events and developments that grace us from time to time. These developments have been known to leave humans so awestruck that a permanent impact gets implanted into their minds. In an attempt to retain the significance of such events and developments, humans have engineered a clever method to book them down through meaningful sobriquets. In an almost remarkable similarity, historically rich places of global reputation and popularity are recognised as the torch bearers of universal heritage by being acclaimed as the incredible Wonders of the World. This year, a group of some of the most astoundingly intriguing wonders have been chosen as the new 7 Wonders of the World. The new list comprises of the Great Wall of China, the ancient city of Petra in Jordan, the statue of Christ Redeemer in Brazil, The Inca city of Machu Picchu in Peru, the Mayan temple of Chichen ItzÃ? in Mexico, the Roman Colosseum in Italy and the Taj Mahal in India.

We have to admit that the new entrants sure do make our heads spin in utter amazement at their surreal beauty and historical relevance. But, taking a sidetrack from this captivating group, we can hardly contain another facet of the discussion that has shaped up in a trendy fashion. A tremendous proliferation of the new age communication devices, that has easily shaped up as a revolution has affected human minds enough to be hailed as the 8th Wonder of the World.

Broadly speaking, today's mobile phones have been triumphantly granted with some of the most awesome abilities that can be imagined on a communication device. The reason behind the development of such devices can lie anywhere between flowing in tandem with the advancing times or accumulating most of the regular work-resolving abilities in an easily accessible manner. The present day mobile phones can be used as a mobile music system, a digital camera, a multimedia device, or even a pocket personal computer system. Needless to say, these awe inspiring devices worked their way into the minds of the tech-hungry humans in a manner sweeping enough to achieve their vote as the 8th Wonder of the World.
