Hope and Fear in the Social Smartphone Era.
Title: Always on
Author: Rory Cellan-Jones
Summary:Smartphones, we love them. The make our lives so much easier. Schedule your day, set your alarms, track your health and fitness, stay connected to your friends and family all over the world, stay entertained, stay up to date, never miss a photo op or a chance to record something amazing. It is true, smartphones are amazing and have changed our lives for the better in so many ways. But at what cost? On the one hand, we can connect with more people than ever before and we have unlimited access to information. But on the other, these devices are encroaching on every aspect of our lives, giving tech companies more access to and more control over everything about us. Either way, the smartphone has arguably changed our lives more than almost any tool ever invented. In Always On, Rory Cellan-Jones, the BBC’s chief technology correspondent, explores whether this is cause for hope or fear.
