GPS cellphones save the world
I don't know if anyone else is overwhelmed with all the new and innovative social networking technologies out there but I am. After reading this article, I started to think about how many people have access to this technology and how many do not. People who do have internet are sure to have access to all of these modernistic websites but not everyone can afford cell phones that have GPS systems and reach and locate everyone.
In regards to that I have to mention this other article in my blog posting because I literally stumbled upon it. The article focuses on how cell phone companies like Nokia are sending anthropologists to third world countries. They are not marketing to the locals they are there in order to understand the culture and see how their technology can be used in the country. If technology such as the Mobile GPSs system should be targeted to everyone it should be priced at realistic and affordable prices. If this does not happen they will not reach the people they are trying to target.
