earth-1920x1080-id-44640-world-wide-e1472114251196The Internet is an amazing thing (guaranteed) that has been around since 1990 and it is remarkable at how far it is come in such a short space of time. For example when the internet was first available it was a platform designed simply to share information mainly used by businesses, however today nearly everyone uses it, and do so even in their ordinary day-to-day chores, such as the weekly shop. To say that we used to get on with our lives and work without the Internet seems preposterous because it has now become a part of all of us, I bet 90% of the UK population don’t go a single day without going online.

Electronic gadgets are taking human ability to the next level. The advancement of this technology is simply astounding, for how far it has come in such a short period of time, especially gadgets such as mobile phones, tablets, and portable gaming stations i.e. Nintendo ds.  Our whole way of entertainment and work is now able to be put in our pockets, and it can be taken anywhere we desire, who ever thought that it would be possible to do all your work from the comfort of your own home or even a sunny beach (if you really wanted to, I know I would!). However, all these gadgets in today’s age are power hungry, unlike 10+ years ago when typically, a Nokia mobile battery life could last you a whole week if not longer, but you’d be lucky to get a full days’ worth of battery life from today’s smartphones.

So what’s the trend this week I hear you ask? Well you can just Go ‘PokémonGO’, this beloved childhood game from the 90’s has made a return and it’s not just children that are loving it, its adults too. People well into their 20’s and above are besotted with this new App; developed based on the Nintendo game and children’s Tv program “Pokémon”. This new game actually manages to get you out of the house, as you have to walk around your area to gain characters as it uses google maps to combine real life within its virtual world, where it uses local landmarks as “Pokémon shops” so you have to walk to these landmarks to go to the shop on your game, sounds like far too much exercise for a game to me.
