Here are some highly successful people in the world who consider modern technology a taboo.

2: Dear Sir / Madam, You have given this braking news. Actually, people using interent can do the work silently, but the people using cell phone are very careful for non-wastage of present time in hand and emphasize upon saving more time for productive business. To go/ reach to the usage level of the 91% using cell phone, the intenet providers or manufacturers should have facility to be conveinet them, those using cell phones, for providing fast services of internet from their basic location, otherwise in near future approx. 90% of the people of the world will be preferring to use cell phones.

At present, I am also using internet at my home, however I desire that the speed I am getting at my home should be received by in transit where I had mobile, because I will not be preferring in future to pick the leaptop up and go somewhere else, and in this case, there is no question desktop to do so. However, internet provider company should discover the unit which connect both the people together with one internet technology in hand of leaptop/ desktop users and cell phone users. Please note, many like me and my sons are also using desktop at home and the same is more suitable for us for business. However, this discovery is not made in the world to connect the internet users and cell phone users together, the cell phone selling companies will be on the top.
