The Mobile Revolution: How Cell Phones CHANGED our Lives Forever | Business Documentary From 2014

The mobile phone entered our lives and changed everything. In just a few decades, we left behind a stationary, slow world where people had to stay in certain places and use clumsy, fixed devices to communicate with the world around them. The move into the completely mobile and constantly connected world that we all take for granted happened at breakneck speed. But how did this transformation come about?

  2. Sam Stone on October 30, 2021 at 8:06 am

    Changing the definition of communicating.

    Just use the technology to the best of your abilities and everything will work out all right, before all this technology and before cell phones whenever somebody was lost nobody could find you, now they can just find you in a heartbeat by tracking you tracking your digital breadcrumbs and that’s a good thing because what if you’re hurt or what if you’re missing what if you are abducted, all this technology can help you if you use it properly.

    I can last the whole day without some apps but not without the phone

  5. Daqian Sun on October 30, 2021 at 8:11 am

    Great documentary! Just want to point out that there’s another way cell phone change people’s lives. In this film these cell phone users are all consumers. But in China, smart phone already become a powerful tool that local entrepreneurs used to promote and sale their products to buyers all over the country. For example, in US, tiktok is only a playground for youngsters to communicte and share funny videos. In China, a farm girl in isolated ruaral area used it to show urban people her unique life style, and meanwhile sale her green farm products with much higher price.

    Nobody ever said when the Atari came out, we are addicted to our Atari game, the psychologist and crazy Siri call rehab centers for so-called cell phone addiction is ridiculous and we don’t even need them but we do need places for alcohol addiction, drug addiction and things like that whoever heard of Internet addiction? Just enjoy the technology why don’t you! And just be careful how you use it if we all use it for good then great things will come of it.

    Honestly, from the perspective of someone who has vision impaired, it’s opened up quite a bit of communication. There were pieces of equipment that I’ve needed that cost thousands of dollars that I can get by with with just an iPhone. Color identifiers, OCR technology, they’ve been more useful than a hindrance to communication. I don’t get to get out much. I have mobility issues, so while everyone was going nuts in 2021 because they couldn’t physically see their friends, I was cool. Most of my friends live out of state so it’s really not a change. I see what they mean, but from the perspective of someone with a disability it just is more useful

  8. Silver Blank on October 30, 2021 at 8:13 am

    Someone called it a digital pacifier and i can never see it the same again

  9. Gerry Houska on October 30, 2021 at 8:13 am

    Happily much of rural Australia is sparsely populated and telecoms couldn’t make profit here. Never had coverage yet, and doubt I ever will – good.

  10. Kurt on October 30, 2021 at 8:14 am

    I think Cell phones have improved our lives far more then damage it. But it cant denied the smartphone was one item that changed mankind for history and as big of a way as taming horses conquering fire and vehicles.

  11. Ashton Gardner on October 30, 2021 at 8:16 am

    Not a single mention of the word pornography, the greatest online addiction of them all. Fascinatingly ironic.

  12. KlausBahnhof on October 30, 2021 at 8:17 am

    37:36 the X-Hamster logo on this guys phone. Nice to see someone candidly showing it to the camera.

  13. Sam Luca on October 30, 2021 at 8:19 am

    I’m a misanthrope, so I personally love my phone.

  16. James Matthews on October 30, 2021 at 8:23 am

    Whenever I see those old Nokias I think of playing Snake

  17. Carlos Pereira on October 30, 2021 at 8:25 am

    Stop watching the video at 01:38 when i saw it was made by " The Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company" … Nothing good can come from this poisonous liberal hellhole

  18. Greog Scottlands on October 30, 2021 at 8:26 am

    53:35 my new favourite insult:
    —‘where does dan live?’
    —*in a man’s bum*

  19. ska punk OI! alternative living on October 30, 2021 at 8:27 am

    I remember having my first ever iPhone 1, it was snatched/stolen when I was at the train station. 😅

  23. Elisabeth T. on October 30, 2021 at 8:36 am

    Who wanted this new slavery ?

  24. Agent Darkness on October 30, 2021 at 8:37 am

    Oh please! Did anybody ever say when radio first came out, I’m addicted to my radio, when TD first came out did you hear anybody saying I’m addicted to my television? Give me a break!

  25. philip mc donagh on October 30, 2021 at 8:38 am

    By the way brilliant documentary thanks.

  26. Scott Alexander on October 30, 2021 at 8:41 am

    I carry more computing power in my hand daily, than any Apollo mission. Of course that’s too powerful to give up. It’s a sword of Damocles…

  27. kaliman buda on October 30, 2021 at 8:41 am

    A place without wireless internet signal is a place similar to a cave back to the time when first human beings lived in african jungles 20,000 yrs ago

  28. Phillip Lyn on October 30, 2021 at 8:42 am

    Loving this one thanks for sharing very information blessed love to all knowledge is power hopefully everyone pays attention keep up the good work 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲

    The human brain is not developed enough to handle smartphones. Modern humans in particular are incapable of regulating their own behavior. We have regressed as a species as a result of the loss of natural predators.

  30. nominalvibe on October 30, 2021 at 8:43 am

    But why only 360p?

  31. ⃢ ✅ on October 30, 2021 at 8:44 am

    Watching on my cellphone

  32. Byron Meikle on October 30, 2021 at 8:48 am

    this is when people got strange using tools made by strange people.

  33. ingod idoubt on October 30, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Cellphone use destroys cognitive abilities.

  34. Erfan Elahi on October 30, 2021 at 8:52 am

    there is not a single video from this channel i didn like 🙂

  35. Agent Darkness on October 30, 2021 at 8:52 am

    Nothing is good on TV or AM and FM radio anymore so we have to go to the Internet, that’s what I did.

  36. Sammy G. on October 30, 2021 at 8:52 am

    Everywhere I look, everywhere I go, about 95 percent of people are sitting on some surface somewhere with their heads, eyes, nose, ears and mouth and their necks angled downward buried in a 45 degree position towards their cell phone screen in their technologically advanced device. The mobile phone is by far one of the biggest antisocial enabling gadgets ever. Example:
    Me: "Good morning, my name is Sam."
    Other person: (Entranced by cell phone)
    Me: "You from around here?"
    Other person: (Entranced by cell phone)…
    And that’s the sad reality of it. It’s going to get worse.

  37. Mike Music and Motivation on October 30, 2021 at 8:53 am

    It’s how you use your cell phone and balance it with family and friends cell phones aren’t bad

  38. morzh1978 on October 30, 2021 at 8:57 am

    53:35 – another side of the story is that 3500 + retards who not only peek at his selfies – they even bother to comment them. This is truly insane, lesser-than-human kind of environment.

  39. Stu Boyd on October 30, 2021 at 8:59 am

    I get by fine in life without a cell phone.

  40. Mesut Sundu on October 30, 2021 at 8:59 am

    I dont watch yet. But ıt was amazing that this chapter is busying my life like a addiction. Hopefully we can use this appliance in right way.

  41. ingod idoubt on October 30, 2021 at 9:00 am

    Machines are destroying human interaction. This is a chronic problem. This leads to cognitive breakdown. People are thinking about yesterday or tomorrow, but are not present to this moment.

  42. philip mc donagh on October 30, 2021 at 9:00 am

    Nobody seems to care, but the powers that be can use them to track your every movement, conversation, text and God knows what else. You can run but you cant hide, well you could leave your phone at home could hide then. A few years time we will be coned into been microchip-ed because of all the befits it will bring. And people will fall for it as usual. Smart phones are for smart people, If there was any smart people around there would be no smart phones.

  43. Sharon z on October 30, 2021 at 9:00 am

    I remember before Cellphones when we had only landlines

  44. scotishjohn on October 30, 2021 at 9:00 am

    Id move

  45. Them Ooos on October 30, 2021 at 9:01 am

    Why these vids seem like there 10 years old

  46. matt sponsler on October 30, 2021 at 9:02 am

    I hate cell phones I never will have 1. Never have never will.

  47. ska punk OI! alternative living on October 30, 2021 at 9:03 am

    And thanks to the digital age now it’s the new way for the governments of all countries to track people.. China has started that surveillance system not to mention the behavioral School and credit score which Now American the whole world is now adopting.. I tell people the time don’t depend on technology will control you at the end.. not to mention you lose your freedom we are losing our freedom now because of the surveillance state.. not to mention date the data they can get from us..

  48. Richard Reynolds on October 30, 2021 at 9:04 am

    It’s ironic, we are watching this video on a cell phone. Not all that many years ago people were more social, ie., in person, face to face, physical contact. I very much miss the days when you would actually go and visit family and friends. Today we make a cell call and go about our business. We have become a global self absorbed anti social animal. Look around, everywhere you look people have a phone in their hand or on their person, texting, talking. One thing I notice is no kids outside playing, kids are indoors talking, texting, on the computer or watching television. The cell phone, computer and television has been both a blessing and a curse. Every year tens of thousands of people are killed because of misused cell phones, ie., traffic collisions, pedestrian fatalities. Life, simple life, face to face communication, for the most part, is gone forever

  49. Olivia Green on October 30, 2021 at 9:05 am

    I’m a young person thinking of downgrading from a smartphone to a flip phone lol my first phone was a flip and honestly was so much better and peaceful

  50. Targeted For Death on October 30, 2021 at 9:05 am

    Cell phones have not changed your life, the NSA has !!
