Technology Essay-

Cell phones are most likely the worst & best inventions known to man.   This paper will give you the bad and the good sides of cell phone technology and some of their features..

The days of only seeing family during the holidays is now a thing of the past. So just sending out a Christmas cards or gathering around the Thanksgiving table no longer is only reason to see each other. Also, in an emergency situation, we have quick lines to call   911 when needed....
