There are often conversations about whether the use of the internet and mobile technology has gotten out of hand. People cite the overuse of social media and Youtube for watching conspiracy experts as contributors to an overabundance of anxiety and stress in each of us. They also say that people have become too dependent on their phones.
Although these concerns have merit, and we need to be mindful of what we are doing with today’s mobile technology, these technologies also deliver great benefits to us.
And how they are assisting us during the coronavirus lockdown presents great examples.
Here are a few ways that the internet and mobile technology are helping us during the Covid-19 lockdown.
One thing that people miss most is the inability to go to their favorite restaurants or fast food joints and order a sit-down meal. This activity is very popular all around the world because it gives a chance to have great food, be with friends, family or co-workers, and enjoy their company while dining and not having to worry about who is going to clean up afterwards.
The coronavirus has put dining in food establishments on hold, and with people at home, technology has come to the rescue. Even before the virus restaurants had begun focusing on providing take out, and companies like Uber, Grab, Lyft, and Food Panda were providing food delivery service using phone apps. The process is simple and effective.
Therefore, when the virus hit, many cities were already prepared to provide great food to people staying at home. Today you can use an app to order a meal and have it delivered to your door. The apps offer a wide range of food choices in your area and in some cases, delivery is free. Although ordering take out can never replace you sitting with friends at your favorite restaurant, you can get good food using your phone and some modern tech.
If not for the internet and its ability to bring entertainment directly to your door I think most of the world would have gone stir-crazy by now. Many signup to Casimba, a top online casino that offers all of your favorite casino games, including slots, craps, Baccarat, bingo, video poker, and live poker. You can play these games using any internet-connected device, including your tablet computer or smartphone. The casino is open 24/7, and you can play for fun or bet. Lots of people are using their spare time to enjoy themselves playing their favorite casino games online.
Another primary choice for entertainment is the online streaming services that provide movies, and TV series. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus and several others are now seeing exponential growth because people are using the internet and their online apps to view their favorite visual content.
Get News Updates
We also use our phones to get news updates and information for how we should respond to the coronavirus. This is very helpful to those who are confused about what things to do and not do during the pandemic.
The internet and mobile technology were designed to help us better our lives and to be there when help is needed. It seems like the coronavirus lockdown is the ideal situation for it to shine.
