New Technology Changing the Face of Cell Site Tower Leases

Over the course of the last 25 years, the cellular industry has experienced tremendous growth. Cell phones have graduated from an ultra-expensive communication device to an inexpensive commodity. The cellular network – the foundation that all cell phones depend upon for service – has rapidly expanded as well. Cellular networks have spent much of the past 25 years leasing property, building “cell towers,” and establishing “cell sites” as quickly as possible in order to meet demand. Today, changing cellular technologies are causing cellular networks to re-organize their cell sites and towers (and their leases).

When cellular phone technology first began to gain popularity, the rush was on to build a cellular network as quickly as possible. Most of this expansion occurred during the first and second generations of cellular technology during the late 1980s and 1990s. During these days, cell towers and cell sites were often chosen based on location. Certain properties and buildings offered “ideal” coverage, and cellular networks often paid exorbitant lease rates for these “ideal” spots because the cellular technology of the time was simply too limited to work anywhere else.

But as the expression goes “times, they are a changin’.”

People Reducing Technology Use to Spend More In-Person Time with Friends and Family

CHINET is leading manufacturer of premium disposable tableware and recently conducted a survey concerning people connecting more with their friends and family without technology.

The results of the survey indicate that many people want to be with others more in the physical world rather than in the virtual world. Over 60 percent of people who participated in the survey intend to decrease their use of technology and virtual social interaction for more in-person experiences with their friends and family.

Over 90 percent of survey participants said they currently use the online world to communicate in ways that are traditionally done in person such as asking someone out on a date, getting advice and even playing some kind of board game.

The survey results showed that the average number of people an individual knows online is around 275. Out of this number, people usually only had seen only 11 percent of them in person during the past few months. It also showed that 60 percent of time people spend interacting with family and friends is done with technology or through social media. On an average week most people spend approximately 23 hours communicating with people using some form of technology or …

I Have a New Technology Invention on Electronic Picture Frames

I have so much worried about those my family pictures littered around the walls of the parlor and my personal room. These are both old memoirs in picture form and the new ones as mum and dad would never like their best old pictures to be removed or even altered. If these pictures are continuously being pasted on our room walls then soon it becomes worse than the picture gallery museum.

I have come up with this idea similar to that of a projector screen. Formally I did my construction with a 12 by 12 inches carton with half inch thickness. Sample pictures of 11 by 11 inches (numbering 50) were cut against the actual 12 inches carton box. These pictures were joined together at their ends with stick of gum cutting off half inch at the ends of the pictures. This was designed to loop continuously (i.e. playing from picture 1 to 50 and back again to picture 1) with the aid of two broom sticks of 13 inches robed heavily with the paper stickers and projecting outside the box from the sides (having half inch offset each for the up and the bottom handle for scrolling of the …

The Future of Technology Will Go Beyond the Norm

The future of technology is constantly evolving. To quote Bill Gates: “Software is used everywhere, and there will be advancements in the future of software and digital.” Bill Gates recently announced that there will be touch and sensory technology, such as a table keyboard, minus the mouse and physical hardware. The modern life is impacted by technology, and the advancement of technology for the next year must add to a more “personalized” quality of life.

With the advancements next year of software for home, work computers and gadgets of all sorts, what’s next? The future of technology will have to impact everyday lives, to help improve lives, in countless ways. This is a tremendous statement, considering the future of technology is boundless. There are endless possibilities for this scenario to come to fruition, given the current advancements in medicine, mobile technology and robotics.

In the case of medicine, there are robots now doing surgery. In the future, people will be able to access robotics for more common aspects of everyday life, yet at possibly more affordable prices for services, as technology progresses and the demand increases. Even inferior versions will be superior to the average old way of life, for …
