Mobile Phone – A Necessity or an Addiction?

Oh! This would be a very typical question in this current generation. I would tell that it has become addiction rather than necessity, especially for young people and children. Though mobile phones are initially used as a better way of communication, but it started to take an essential part in human’s life. Definitely, it has given us many dramatic benefits and allowed to move forward along with technology. This technological development caused many upgrades to traditional phones that were used before. Of course, this development can be one of the reason for mobile phone addiction, than a necessity.

Cell phones are one of the major technological instrument that is used more often. Initially, it was the instrument that was available to only a few people and today 9 out of 10 people own a cell phone including school going children. It is acceptable that it provides a better mode of communication, saves time, helps manage finances on the move, cheaper and is hugely convenient. But with these pros that are a part of necessity, there are few cons that make it as an addiction. Mobile phones should be an essential part of your life, but to should control your life. Until it is maintained as essential part it is a necessity, once it starts to control your life then you are in trouble of addiction. Mobile phone addiction can lead to severe distress and can result in severe physical problems which can cause permanent damage.

Points to remember to get rid of addiction and medical problems

• Limit your usage of cell phone. Set particular time at which you should check notifications received. If possible, try to customize notifications.

• Delete unnecessary apps from your phone like social media apps as there are not that much essential.

• Avoid usage of phone while in bed. Try not to use a mobile phone at least one hour before going to bed.

• Instead of using a smart phone, better switch back to traditional phones which are always the best choice.

• Get into the real world and try to be a part of human life. Start your conversation directly rather than through texting or calling.

• Usage of headset or speaker is better as it can avoid radiation.

• Children should not be allowed to use a mobile phone, instead engage them in outdoor activities.

Prevention is always better than getting cured. So try to control yourself with mobile phone usage and set some time limit to have a healthy relationship with mobile phones.…

Computers and Technology: Shop for Insurance Responsibly

Today's advances in computers and technology make many tasks easier than they were years ago. Computers and technology aid us in our personal lives as well as professional lives. Most young people probably can not imagine a world without computers and technology, and most older people probably can not imagine going back to that world. Thanks to computers and technology, we work online, we play online – we do just about everything online!

A popular trend today is the act of purchasing insurance policies online. Health insurance, life insurance, auto insurance – you name an insurance, and it can probably be purchased online thanks to computers and technology. This is a great convenience for some folks. Think about it: who wants to make a detour on their commute home from a long day of work to talk with an insurance agent about purchasing an insurance policy? Would not most people rather go home to spend time with their families and relax before the next day begins?

While computers and technology make it much easier to spend more time enjoying these kinds of leisure activities, they also make it much easier for us to lose connection with real people. By purchasing insurance online, you're saving time and effort, but you're also losing the important, yet overlooked, benefit of speaking with an insurance agent one-on-one, face-to-face. At the very most, the only human interaction you're going to have by purchasing insurance online is speaking with a representative over the phone.

This is not to say that you should avoid the perks of today's computers and technology, such as purchasing insurance online; However, you should make sure you have the chance to get some one-on-one time with an insurance agent – even if that one-on-one time is only over the phone. Rather than the conversation consisting solely of a brief synopsis of the coverage and your credit card number, ask specific questions, and make sure to get wellly detailed answers. …

Guru-Free SEO

As a cartoonist, I do not get asked too many questions regarding the world of website SEO. As an Internet consultant who studied business at Western Governor's University, I get asked questions daily. And it really is not much of a surprise. A great many web owners do not know SEO. There are others who think they know SEO, and "learned from experts", only to find out within a few weeks or months that their site has been removed from Google for using backdoor or bad methods of marketing. The sad thing is that most of them did not have a clue they were doing it unethically. They simply downloaded an eBook that they paid way to much money for and followed the instructions.

What they fail to realize is that most of the time, the author of that ebook has downloaded another ebook before writing his / or hers and simply plagiarized most of it, thinking, "If I bought it on the Internet, and from a guru, chances are it's good information.

I do not write or sell Ebooks at this time. Why? Because I do not consider myself a guru or an expert. A lot of people should not who do. I am very good at it, and I am one of the few who has SEO'd my own cartoon website into the Alexa Top 100,000 websites (as low as 65,000), but that still does not make me an expert. I am pursuing more education before I use that word to describe me. Let's just say, for the most part, I believe I know what I'm doing, and people pay me to do it, generally before they pay "an expert". And there is a reason. I research, I read, I double read, and I triple read, not just sites on the Internet, but scholarly books in our university library.

I guess the most asked questions are, "What should I do, PPC Advertising, article marketing, blogging, link exchange, keyword optimization, or what?

The question is not the same for everyone, though a few of the basics apply to all sites.

The first thing I usually tell them is that once their website is complete, look at it as a desert island and a large hotel chain has an option to build a hotel there which will attract millions of happy visitors.
Your job is to make sure that hotel gets built, the word gets out about it, and people not only visit but purchase from you while staying at the hotel. After all, you have built a shop or shops very close to the upcoming four star hotel.

Can it be done overnight? Sure, if you want to get kicked off most of the major web engines. You simply start spamming and spamming is a numbers game. The problem is spamming is bad netiquette and even illegal in some states. And you will be spinning your wheels. That is not just email spamming but blog spamming, article spamming and …
