Re: Gps
Wow, you are so right!  The technologies you listed made me realize that I take a lot of these technologies for granted. Your list made me pause, reflect, and appreciate on all of the technologies that I use, depend on, and benefit from. Let's toast to gratitiude for technology!

Social Media?
Eh - I would argue Social Media has done us more harm than good. I would trade reconnecting with high school friends I never liked to begin with for never, ever hearing the name Kardashian.

Re: Gps
The combination of mobile phones and GPS is the single greatest consumer technology move since the PC in my opinion.

Social Media
Well it has both props and cons. It is a great way to stay connected. However when it comes to privacy, it is the individual's responsibility maintain the privacy settings based on their requirement. What do you say?

Re: Weather App
@SachinEE, that's true. It is also better if the mobile phone can provide the weather forecast before you start your day. May be an alert on your phone screen, saying "it will rain after 12.00 Noon, please take the umbrella with you"

Mobile phones.
I think mobile phones should take the number 1 position. It is a huge achievement. It has become one of the necessities now.
