Cell phones, television, laptops or tablets are the most important possessions these days and people can just not imagine living without these.
The reason is that we depend on the gadgets and modern technology for everything such as storing phone numbers, sending and receiving emails, alarms, booking air tickets, storing memories via photos and videos, and what not.
We have become so insane that we even tend to forget important dates such as birthdays and anniversaries of loved ones as we save everything on these gadgets as reminders. Basically, we are all too dependent on the modern technology.
