You like electronic goods, then thank the robots

I regard my smartphone as one of my best friends. 

Now that might sound a bit shallow, and I can count my personal friends on less fingers than there are on my left hand, but I, like many of us, spend more time with my mobile than those around me.

The smartphone is a masterpiece of this, the tech, or to be more precise, the electronic age. And don’t they say there’s more computer power in the modern smartphone, than when they went to the moon in Apollo 11?

The downside of this of course, is that you are always online. I personally think that’s a good thing, but those around me don’t always agree. I remember when you were out of reach of a telephone and came back to about a million messages, all which had to be sifted through and replied. Now you can reply and take action in real time. 

But being always on means you need productivity apps to help you to collate, and prioritise your action points. I’m a big fan of Trello, Monday (or is it Wednesday, I can never remember) and Evernote. Problem is, I can spend so long in filling out the brilliant taps and helpful aids, that time spent on actually working is dramatically reduced. Which is why I often revert back to a handy notebook and pen as the best aidr memoir of all. 

However, the point is, the fact that we enjoy our smartphones is down to robots, because they have helped the electronics industry cope with demand, Robots mean more efficient and safer production centres for the manufacturer of smartphones.

So just think, your smartphone addiction is thanks to robots (hooray)!
