Mobile Internet: At Your Service

A four-man crew is installing an Energy Management System at one of the largest chain stores in the country.  Over a relatively short time period, it will save hundreds of thousands of dollars, a feat that will ideally benefit the consumer as well.  The men shut down the main power to the refrigeration system which controls the temperature on about a million dollars-worth of food that must remain frozen or cooled.  A temporary electrical supply source is set in place.  It will only provide service for about one hour.  The clock is ticking.

After cables are run and the electrical work is done, one man makes a call to the technical department across the country that oversees the operation.  Via internet on the mobile phone, the job will be commissioned and given the green light to reconnect the main electrical supply, or not.  It’s a race against time.  If any repairs have to be made or any problems require trouble-shooting, it must be done in haste.

Mobile Internet enables electricians and other service workers keep up with the times.  It provides the means to do very important tasks at any location and to have those tasks commissioned or tested from miles away, sometimes a whole continent away.  In return, companies are able to install, repair or update much more efficiently and in a more timely, less expensive manner because the services rendered are able to communicate from afar rather than being dependent for all parties concerned to be in one location.

There are a lot of times that mobile internet can be convenient and entertaining.  You can catch up of the latest news feeds on Facebook, email a friend and even send a photo you just took.  There are other times when having mobile internet can literally save the day.  Your bank account has just been hacked into.  Your cable bill is overdue and is moments away from your service being disconnected.  Being able to get that one vital email can sometimes save your life from ruin.

Then there are the times you are stuck in the waiting room at the doctor’s office or on the subway.  It’s just good time management to catch up on emails or to click online to check a bank balance or whatever else needs to be done.  Sometimes it’s just nice to be able to unravel and play a game online.

Mobile internet is noteworthy of saving lives too.  Weather can be tracked, steering people from treacherous conditions such as flooding and tornadoes.  Traveling has been made much easier too.  It can be very inconvenient and downright dangerous to get lost.   Internet availability via a hot spot enables the navigation feature on many mobile phones.  A whole route can even be put in an internet program that will map out the best way to go.

It’s a busy, demanding and sometimes dangerous world.  Mobile internet is technology’s answer to many problems that arise in the modern times in which we live.  The internet… it’s good to not to have to leave home without it.

Technology in the Shower

You all probably already know how much I love technology and everything connected to technology. I think that in a way technology connects people all around the world. In today’s world, it is fairly easy to make new friendships via Internet. Just to name a couple of examples; twitter and facebook. I mean what better way is there to meet new people and to share ideas and knowledge?

Recently I have been thinking a lot about technology of all sorts, but the one that has gotten my attention the most is the technology in the shower. I love listening to podcasts and making calls in the shower with a shower head with a speaker. There are plenty of reviews out there online, but I like the ones from a site called A Great Shower. It is fun, and I guess it saves time. You can make phone calls during your relaxation time. Some of you will probably wonder why to make calls while relaxing. Well, those calls do not have to be business calls. You can talk to your girlfriend or friends, catch up on what is new while relaxing yourself.

Shower heads these days are equipped with all sorts of things. You can even get a rain shower head which can make steam. Is not that cool? I guess it is all about your character and what you like and what you do not like. Some people will enjoy a nice bubble bath in silence while other, like myself, will love everything that is new and that allows me to expand my knowledge and ideas.

Beside my affection towards technology, I also enjoy listening to music. You have probably by now realized that I enjoy showering, but what makes me happy is combining those two. Music while showering. I can sing under the shower, listen to podcasts and if needed I can make calls as well. What a great usage of technology. It feels like relaxation without borders.

Technology in the shower sector has gone a long way. And not just shower wise, but bathrooms are now getting more and more technical. You can buy all sorts of stuff for your bathroom. You can buy towel warmers in all shapes and colors, bathroom fans also available in different colors and shapes. When talking about colors, if you are anything like me, you will love some ‘geeky’ ideas for your bathroom. The choices are endless. You do not even have to invest a lot of money. If you have a vivid imagination, you will decorate your bathroom for less money but in a way that you will give the bathroom you own signature.

Today we can express ourselves any way we like. If you feel like your house or just one room in the house needs renovating, go for it. make it shine. Even if you are not that technologically advanced, it is never to late to give it a shot. Try little thing first. Award yourself with a shower head with a speaker. You will see that you will start singing under the shower in no time.
