Mobile technology has moved to the center of our lives. Although it seems like it has happened all of a sudden, the change has come over more than 2 decades. Today, we carry around our smart phones wherever we go and feel naked when we forget or lose them. These and other mobile devices are so valuable because of the access to goods, services, and entertainment that they provide. Here are some of the hot areas of mobile tech.
Watching Movies and TV
Streaming media has replaced traditional television as the way that most of the world now consumes movies and TV shows. Companies like Netflix can now stream thousands of full length, hi-definition video and audio to phones, tablets and other internet enabled devices. This means that you can watch movies on the go wherever you are. Companies are beginning to challenge the traditional movie theater business as well with some films debuting on these streaming services instead of in theaters. The result is more content available to more people and increased revenues for the industry.
In terms of the power and reach of mobile technology, even the online casino industry is following the trend. Nearly a decade ago, online casinos began to gain traction as gamblers were attracted because of the convenience and variety of games they could play from home. Today, the online gambling business is consistently moving more and more to being conducted on mobile devices.
Mobile gambling allows gamblers to play any casino game from anywhere they are in the world. They can also play anytime day or night. Using a tablet or smart phone, players can make cash bets and cash out their winnings as real money to their personal accounts.
Controlling Your Home Appliances
Today mobile technology can be used to control many appliances in your home. The Internet of Things (IOT) is designed to connect home appliances so they can be controlled by a smart phone, tablet of another internet connected device. You can now control your television, lights, air conditioner, and even open or lock your front door using mobile technology. This allows you to remotely operate your appliances, meaning you can turn them on or off from the couch, your bed or even when you are away from home.
In Your Car
Automobile technology is a fast-growing field. Auto makers seek to give drivers more control over their cars by use of mobile technology that is both seamless and constantly improving. Some new cars today can be unlocked and started with a mobile phone. Tesla automobiles utilize mobile technology to diagnose problems in real time and even provide updates to the car’s software on the fly. Car mobile tech means that you can drive your car to work in the morning and come home with a technologically updated car when you return home that night.
We are at the beginning of a mobile technology revolution that will soon have us controlling nearly every part of our lives from a mobile connected device. This approach offers us more convenience, advanced features and an ability to have products and services individualized to fit our specific needs.
