This is how our way of working with mobile has changed

The world of digital is evolving at an enormous speed. Many of us have grown up with the Internet as a novelty, as an evolution of traditional media, but new generations are being born with the Internet as an indissoluble support for their day-to-day lives. And not only to work, but also to socialize at all levels. The paradigm has radically changed in just a decade.

What the internet has given us in recent years has been a qualitative leap when it comes to working and exposing what we do every day, both personally and professionally. Throughout this process, different media have appeared: we started with the computer and ended with tablets and mobiles. The latter have taken the cat to the water and are our daily bread at every step we take

We no longer call; we send Whatsapps in text and send audio messages. This is precisely causing companies to offer better data rates and put calls “aside”. Something as simple as this has changed the way we work, of spending day to day at the office and at home. We are constantly connected and this situation defines our way of acting.

How do we work now?

The mobile has displaced the laptop as a work tool. We check email, attend video conferences without leaving the site, use office automation tools to edit files that we share in the cloud, etc. Before, all these tasks were exclusive to the PC; now, you don’t even need a plug to run them in real time and from the palm of your hand.

I remember when, no more than a decade ago, we wanted to share files in the office. The most viable solution, but also more cumbersome, was to establish a local network where everyone would drag their already edited files. Any necessary modifications involved loud announcements so that no one would step on the changes. It was a functional system, but rough and from the digital Palaeolithic if we compare it with today.

And the cloud came

The solution has been called “cloud”. We not only throw files on the internet to share them with our office colleagues, but we can also edit them in real time in a dynamic way, with control of changes and without stepping on anyone’s work . All directly from the mobile or tablet with a Bluetooth keyboard for greater comfort . The pendrives were born nothing ago and are already dead.

And the email?

Email has also changed thanks to this technology. It is no longer something exclusively linked to a computer; now it’s a mobile issue. We receive emails anywhere and at any time, regardless of what we are doing at that time. And this leads us to answer them, to work outside “official” hours and to disconnect less than before. It is one of the “negative” consequences that the current technological explosion has brought.

We are not yet the bionic beings that science fiction novels and movies draw us, but the truth is that there shouldn’t be too much left for it. Although we do not physically have the implants in our body, we already wear them “dressed” in our day to day life. Because at this point, technology is no longer a complement to become a peripheral part of our body.
