Are Boomers Less Involved With Social Media?

September 14, 2013 |

You may think baby boomers are a hopeless generation when it comes to the advancement of technology in general and social media sites in particular. But you may be wrong in those assumptions. While it may be true that many baby boomers are resistant to social media — given that it’s not something they grew up with like today’s kids — they are more eager to accept this part of technology than many people realize. First, a little history. The U.S. Census Bureau defines baby boomers as those born between the years of 1946 and 1964. About nine months after the end of World War II, the first babies of this popular generation were born, starting an astounding trend that would continue for years. In fact, more babies were born in 1946 than ever before in history — a whopping 20 percent more than just the previous year in 1945, according to the … Read More

How Smartphones Are Changing The Third World

We think about mobile phones as something we have in our advanced economies, but it is surprising just how many there are in the Third World. Of course, you expect to see mobile phones in places like India and China, which are emerging rapidly as economic powers, but mobile phones have penetrated the market in some very surprising places. For example, there are 18 million mobile phone subscribers in Afghanistan – that’s 60% of the population – and over 85% of people there are in areas that have cellular service.

Because they are so widespread in the Third World, mobile phones – and especially smartphones – are starting to make a difference to people’s lives. For example, dengue fever is a real problem in Lahore, Pakistan. Like malaria, dengue fever is transmitted by mosquitoes and can be fatal. In 2011, over 16,000 people there contracted dengue fever, and over 350 died. The next year, government healthcare … Read More

Will European and American Power Outlets Ever Be Merged?

September 7, 2013 |

If you like to travel abroad, you may run into a very common problem should you bring electronics with you.
