Mobiles and smart phones, what are the pros and cons?
Mobiles have extensively entered our societies to the extent that they have become an indispensable habit, and a basic need in our life that we cannot do without.
So, you see them in the hands of businessmen who use them for economic business and to follow-up their projects daily or periodically. Moreover, you see them in the hands of adolescents who are showing off with the features of mobiles, the pornographic clips and images on which they store, as well and songs. Between this practical economic view of businessmen, religious people, politicians, and scientists and the low view of adolescents we find it essential to put this topic into discussion.
Therefore, I would like that every reader evaluate this experience, which entered our eastern societies, from his own abstract and sincere view through the following questions and headlines:

3- Throwing some responsibilities on mobile companies and reckoning them at negligence.
