Evolution of Emoticon
The first Emoji was made as a joke. Does anyone remember the first time they started using emoji's in texts ? "The first documented use of “:-)” dates back to 1982, when Scott Fahlman proposed that it be used as a “joke marker” on a message board for Carnegie Mellon University computer scientists.
People have become accustomed to texting and messaging now, it has become the easiest way to communicate. Then there was a sudden step back as people started to hear rumors that government agencies were monitoring their conversations. People started to become a little paranoid, because we do share a lot of information through messaging applications.
Communication of the Future
Communication has come a long way... from the beating of drums to smoke signals, then we had the carrier pigeons or eagles, we then got the morse code, sending electronic signals. Then came the pager, which was like todays twitter, a few letters sent to an electronic device which would enable the user to check the message and call back on the particular number, this is still famous with doctors. Then came the invention of the cell phone and with it brought SMS, short message service.
Ever lost something in the dark or fumbled and stumbled in a dark place ? It is a very common occurance, more common than one would imagine. Hence, we developed an app for times like this: the timed flashlight. An app so simple even a first time phone user (if such a thing exists anymore) can use it. It has the easiest navigation, you download it and switch it on and this gets the flashlight working. You can set the flashlight to automatically switch off after 10 seconds, 30 seconds or 3 minutes. It hardly takes any space on the phone memory.
