With social networking taking the centre position in today's world, communication nowadays is turning out to be more of textual and graphical than verbal.
How many friends do you have on facebook or twitter, and how many of them update their status in foreign languages? That is becoming a trend. Did you know that not all of them actually speak what they write? ;)
Thanks to Google Translate, everyone nowadays can comprehend and communicate in any language!

Do you Remember?

Do you remember the days when there was no mobile phone technology in Kenya? All we could worry about when we could want make a call is where to get enough coins from so that we could use in the telephone boot. Those days are long gone, and are followed by the mobile phone age. This age has experienced tremendous and rapid development, from the days when the only names in the industry were SAFARICOM and KENCELL.

Today there are four major mobile phone service providers in Kenya: Safaricom, Airtel, Yu and Orange. Come to think of it, this has really helped eliminate monopoly and we have seen price wars that have resulted to reduced call rates to the consumers’ advantage. However, this package of reduced rates comes together with some confusion: Which is my favorite Service Provider (SP)? This has seen most, if not all of us turned into SP prostitutes. Taking myself as an example, I have four sim cards in my wallet and with one mobile, these sim cards have to be given turns staying in my phone. Does this irritate anybody like it irritates me?
However, 2011 may be the year we say goodbye to bulky Sim Cards in our wallets
