Mobile technologies are one of the fastest growing technologies to date. They haven’t been in development for a very long time but still managed to create a revolution in their wake and changed our lives in so many ways. You can’t really navigate a modern city without a mobile device; even the elderly gave up on this “new” invention and got themselves a phone. These technologies open up a whole endless world of opportunities and information. Here’s how mobile phones changed different aspects of our lives, including the food we consume.
Accessibility is one of the main advantages of mobile devices. Phones are much cheaper and easier available than any type of computers or tablets. That’s why a lot more people exclusively use and depend on them for Internet access. I’d say shrimp gumbo is a good equivalent of the easily available technology in food form. This dish is very easy to make and will give you comfort on a bad day.
First start with the roux and when it reaches deep brown color, add the vegetables. Then add the beef broth, spices and bring to a boil. Lastly put in the shrimp and fried sausage slices. Serve over rice for a classic combination and a maximum level of comfort.
Communication is another popular use of mobile phones, especially now that we can connect to people all over the world. It’s so easy to discover different cultures firsthand from a native speaker with a variety of message apps and sites. And sharing your heritage with someone on the other side of the planet is quite a unique and fascinating experience. If you want to feel even a deeper connection and play a role of a pioneer discoverer, try making something like Szechuan sauce. This extremely versatile Chinese dish has all the flavors needed to complement a variety of food items. First combine garlic, ginger, vinegar, soy sauce and sriracha in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. In a bowl whisk together chicken broth and cornstarch, then stir it in the pan until the sauce thickens. Store it in the fridge for up to two months and use with any dishes.
With the rise of mobile technology a new range of businesses has emerged as well. At this point there’s an app for pretty much anything you can think of, even the stuff that seems rather useless. And any company that wants to succeed on a modern market is bound to have some sort of mobile service available; otherwise it may have problems with branching out and finding a steady clientele.
Ultimately, the mobile technologies created the “everything” device that has the functions of various products, all-in-one, just like in the infomercials. Mobile phones have replaced or took part of different markets like music players, cameras, flashlights, calculators etc. They’re definition of “versatile”, same as sheet cake is in the baking realm. It can be vanilla or chocolate based, have all sorts of fillings and decoration options. And it’s so hard to resist its soft and moist texture that you won’t be able to stop after the first slice. It is a truly a universal recipe.
Mix all the dry ingredients, then add the wet one by one and whisk until the batter is completely smooth. Bake it in the oven and set aside to cool. For the chocolate frosting melt some butter, add cocoa powder, buttermilk and powdered sugar. Pour over the cake and enjoy with a cup of tea.
What I think we all should agree on is that mobile technologies not only have benefits for everyone around the world but also that they’re here to stay. The wheels are already in motion and we don’t have the power to turn back time. So it’s best to embrace the technological progress of today and continue changing our lives and our planet for the better.
