Technology Tuesday: Women Spoil Yourselves

Woman and Smartphone on Just Pursue It

Ah August… women’s month. I’m sure by now you’ve heard all the motivational speak re women: How brilliant we are, how well we handle pressure, how we always go the extra mile, how we sacrifice of ourselves to make sure someone is happy, fed and clothed, oh and not forgetting we are the multi-taskers of note. And we wait a whole year to be reminded of all of the above  :).

What’s next? We are reminded to spoil ourselves… oh and how we love to do this, a rare occasion… better still: we want to be spoilt. What’s your idea of being spoilt? A pamper session, shopping vouchers, retail therapy, a visit to the hairdresser or spa.

Today I would like to add technology to your list. Have you thought about spoiling yourself with a cell phone, not just any cell phone but a Smartphone. Gone are the days where you say: “I just want to send sms’s and make calls”. Oh no ladies step up!

What about keeping up to date with the social media sites, your calendar or diary is so important so that you remain on top of everything happening in your life, being able to use an instant message system such as Whatsapp, Googling the unknown and a favourite of mine which I can’t do without is Google Maps.

So while we have this excuse (Women’s Month), make a smart decision, get a smart phone.

Here are a few suggestions:
iPhone 4S
Samsung S3
Nokia Lumia

Technology Tuesday: Mobile Matters!

How important is it to you to have a mobile phone with smart features which enables you to have access to your business anywhere anytime? Have you adopted the use of smart technology or are you still part of a community that says: “As long as I can make and receive calls and sms.”

We do not have our desktops, laptops or tablets infront of us 24/7. Yet our productivity should not slow down and our mobiles should be able to have enough smart features for business to continue. Responding timeously to requests, comments and queries in business plays a crucial role in keeping clients happy.

Today it is very important that we have access to the following using our mobiles:

  • Wi-Fi/3g
  • Email
  • Social Media Accounts
  • Banking
  • Camera
  • Video
  • Instant messaging eg Whatsapp
  • Calendar
  • Navigation app
  • and many more…

Some mobile stats and facts – South Africa:

  • 925 000 smartphones are being activated daily
  • There are more mobile phones that taxis, radios and televisions combined in South Africa
  • There are about 29 million cellphones in SA compared to only 5 million landlines
  • Most mobile users use their smartphones to send or read mail, browse the internet and access a social network.
  • In SA there are more than double of mobile internet users than desktop internet users
  • 65% of all weekend Google searches happen on a mobile

So next time you are due for an upgrade do yourself a favour and research which mobile phone would best cater for your needs. Rather get “with it” than get left behind!

Let your fingers do the talking!
