Thanksgiving Assignment

Over Thanksgiving break, I spoke to my mom about which information technology is most important to her at work.  She said her cellphone was by far the most important because she needs it to communicate with all her coworkers and maintain availability to people that may need her when she is not int he office.  She's always needed a cellphone for work, so she's been able to stay literate with the changes from flip phones, to a Blackberry, which she still uses today, because of its connection to her Microsoft calendar.  She said she needs to "transition" from blackberry to a touch screen so now she has a half touch screen, half keyboard blackberry.  Since she is not as technologically advanced as most teens today, this is understandable that she doesn't want to have vast changes from phono to phone, since she knows how to use her current one with other work related jobs and issues.  It was interesting talking to my mom about this since I grew up with having a phone since middle school and my mom didn't have her first cell phone till a couple years before me.  We went through the learning process together and still help each other out with technical difficulties to this day.

  1. It is interesting to see how rapidly technology develops. New innovations can be seen every year with the introduction of new cell phones containing new features that competitors are quick to adopt. I agree that it can be a challenge to keep up with technology, so social support is important to help the smooth transition to newer forms of technology.
