This morning after a mission with bad internet signal , I made my self a cup of tea and thought how did we survive before without all this technology .
I recall my last flight home to SA , handbag contents included a mobile phone , digital camera, camcorder , DsLite consol, external hard drive and a few USB sticks and a cute pink netbook among my other girlie must haves. Strange to think that one could have so much technology in a handbag .
Seems hard to believe it but yes we did survive ,wrote letters , called people and visited more often. Life as we know it has been taken over by the rat race and our best method of contact now seems email , BBM, Whatsapp, Facebook and Twitter.I recall my first few months back from London and how I felt so cut off from the world especially my friends overseas. It was like like living in the Stone Age until I got internet access and a mobile phone.
I then realised how we in South Africa were recieving so little for the extremely high prices we paid for net access and mobile contracts. Having been an Apple mobile user in the UK I have had to downgrade to a Blackberry purely out of the finances of the mobile plans availlable.We need to make technology available to all in SA to ensure a techno savy society.Ciao for now my lovelies ………
