Cell Phones Changes Everything

According to the article "How Cell Phones Have Changed Our Lives", by Douglas Stewart, published on May 30, 2008, cell phones has made our life much more convenient. Cell phones has brought many advantages to our daily living. For example, a family member could call home in order to mention he won't be eating dinner home instead of going all the way back to his house. In other cases, a child could call their parents if he missed his bus. That way, family members are easier in touch with each other. Another pros would be that shopping is a lot more easier. When one forgets their shopping list, they won't have to go back all the way to their house to get it. Instead, they could use their cell phones to call home and have a family member read it to them. However, there's also disadvantages. One of the biggest cons of cell phone is that people talk less face to face since talking through the phone is easier. Moreover, everyone is using their phone whether their waiting for the bus or the trains. In the old days, people would talk to each other, even if they're strangers, and make more friends.
Cell phones have indeed completely changed our living style. Many things can be done on the phone that we couldn't have done years ago. I still remember when my Math teacher would say: "you won't always have a calculator on you, so you have to learn how to calculate this". Well, unfortunately for them, calculator applications are in almost everyone's phone, and most people carry their cell phones everywhere. It is true that cell phones had made our living a lot easier, but that doesn't mean we can forget how to do everything. A common thing that a lot of people ignore, is that if you always rely on your cell phones, you might forget the old methods you learnt. That's a problem because one day, if cell phones doesn't work anymore, and everyone forgot about the old methods, no one would be able to
teach it or learn it anymore. Therefore, it would be doomed. I believe that reminding people of this fact is a way to spread the word of not relying on the cell phones too much.
