A cell phone is a personal Trans receiver, a device so small and compact that every human being can comfortably carry one wherever they go today. However, in the recent past, cell phones were barely portable, unlike the handheld devices. The enabling cell phone technology with a limited cellular network range was developed in the 1940s for the first time and they became widely available in the 1980s. This current paper, sets out to discuss the introduction of cell phones in the technological world.
The advancements in cellular phone technology can be traced in different and distinct generations, from the early Mobile Telephone Service (MTS), and the successive Improved Mobile Telephone Service. Next, is the first generation (1G) analog cell phone network, then, the second-generation (2G) digital phone network, followed by, third-generation (3G) broadband data services. Further, came the fourth generation (4G), which has the current prevailing state of art in the cell phone industry with IP networks.
Cell phones form an integral part of people’s daily life. They aid people to stay in a constant contact with their family, friends and in keeping abreast in their daily business transactions throughout the world. Nevertheless, in the recent past, people were confined to their home network and cell phones connected within a single based service coverage area. Thus, there was no continuity for the cell phones only worked through several cell areas. Hence, it was very complex and expensive to use cell phones outside one’s designed home network.
Currently, various technologies are available to everyone, which include cellular phones, gaming systems, Mp3 players, laptops among others. These technological advancements make it easier for the children to access and fit whatever device they wish to have in their pockets or backpacks. Children’s are widely connected to the outside world since they view mobile phones as a lifeline, with the average teenager sending at least 2,000 messages a month through their cell phone. Nevertheless, cell phones have negative impacts on the same people who cannot live without them. The use of cell phone endangers lives when used while driving, defacing face-to-face communication is defaced, and a distraction of students while studying among others.
Conclusively, it is difficult to imagine how life would be like without the use of cell phone. Cell phones are practically used in almost all aspects of life for communication. Thus, the property of the mobile phones has rapidly enhanced communication by making it easy to transfer and receive information from just about anywhere without the limitation of the network, a disadvantage that used to hinder effective and direct communication in the past generations.
The most successful essays are well planned. Essays that go off the point with lots of extra detail will get poor marks.
Stick to the question
Underline key words in the essay title so you really understand the question being asked. It’s not about writing all you know about a topic.
Words like ‘discuss’, ‘compare and contrast’, ‘evaluate’, ‘account for’ are used as ways to direct your answer; make sure you know what they mean.
Other questions may start with ‘how’, ‘what’, ‘why’ or ‘when’.
Write a plan
Brainstorm your ideas on the essay topic to get started. Spider diagrams are good for this.
Plan the structure of the essay by numbering each of your ideas in order of importance. At this stage you may wish to leave some of them out or develop others by breaking them into sub points. Redo your original spider diagram as necessary.
You may have to present your argument for the essay under broad themes like ‘economic’, ‘social’, ‘political’ or ‘religious’ reasons. Make sure you understand which theme suits each of your points, then group your all points on the same theme in order of importance into a separate paragraph.
Writing the essay
Your essay must have an introduction. State the main points you will discuss in order to support your answer to the question set in the title of the essay.
2. Development of your argument
After the introduction add further paragraphs to build your argument, make the most important points first. Remember the way these points are ordered makes your argument clearer to the reader.
Start a new paragraph for each new important point and any linked points that relate to the question. You may include quotations from other historians and refer to primary sources (such as you can find on this website) to support a particular point.
Make sure your essay makes chronological sense. Try to present any factual points in date order.
Avoid telling the story of what happened. If you refer to an important historical event, you must make a point or comment about it. This will stop your essay from becoming a simple narrative and it shows you are trying to analyse events rather than just describe them.
Aim for five to seven paragraphs, depending on the essay and level of course you are following.
Sum up the main points and briefly restate your argument.
Re-read your work, check for spelling errors, and redraft if necessary.
