So you can keep track of your kids or somone who might need help. Basically mobile phones help us get a hold of each other faster when we need it.

En el 2010 viviré a plenitud en compañía de las hormigas

My response was meant to be a mere contribution to the conversation, whereby I am an average person with average duties, one of which is time-management. Perhaps you could work on your reading comprehension a bit, including such key skills as inference and extrapolation. I honestly can’t follow your conclusion that I must be handy with a PDA; I’ve never used one… wouldn’t know how. The point is – I already own a laptop and a small cell phone, both of which are practically mandated by my employment. Thus, by not purchasing a PDA and thereby not duplicating services and by diligently extending the useful life of my cell phone by good care and maintenance, I am not joining the number of individuals that simply toss out old phones and buy PDAs thus impacting all upstream and downstream processing emissions.

The compass also helps to orient . I also used the picture and video capture to report damage to electrical facilities directly to are district storm . I learned alot from this site on how to use it .

I enjoy reading the news paper daily on my mobile device, as well as studying for my GRE through applications available through my mobile device. E-receipts and any other form of software that reduces the need for paper are software I take advantage of as they come available. Using my mobile device allows me to use less energy versus my computer at home, while still allowing me to preform most all the same functions. I feel that the “age of paper” is on the down swing with hand-held mobile devices offering a more sustainable and progressive approach to attaining information.
