Being Smart is a Necessity

“I have wandered around the planet for too long. I have been to every corner of Earth’s human free areas” remarked the Frankenstein monster, finishing the tea in his cup.

“Has that made you a wiser or at least a smarter person? Does that at least leave you with certain vestige of being so?” asked Count Dracula.

“You have always been a man of doubt, Mr. Dracul. I have made it all the way here on this blood moon night with my smart use of magic. My mind is now complete with spells that go back many centuries. I am now full, with sorcery in my mind as well as soul” replied a confident monster, known to many by the name Adam, the first man on Earth.

“Where does magic stand in this age of science and technology? Even for the best trained creatures of the night like us, lack of knowledge of human technology has caused trouble in the past” said Dracula.

“Now, you are saying that you are placing human science and technology here, as a replacement for centuries old magic” wondered Adam.

“Yes, now you see that smart security camera? It has helped us to detect any human presence nearby, helping us to keep ourselves hidden from them – such cameras are placed all around the castle, and it is how we came to know that you were here. We have Smart Camera systems and Smart lights“.

“So, you didn’t use the natural vampire sense or the bats which used to carry your messages?” asked Adam.

“No, there are too many electricity lines and posts around. They get caught all the time, and so we have them working only within the yard. Nice drums, by the way”.

“No, don’t do that. It is not a drum – that thing is a smart wireless bluetooth speaker which is used to play simple and tension- relieving vampire music for our brothers and sisters inside the coffin” explained Dracula.

“I have heard that vampires have grown more health conscious. A little bird told me the same a few days ago in the Carpathians” remarked Adam.

“Yes, see this smart watch? It does almost everything for me. This light-weight version even senses vampire heartbeats. I can do some running and cycling with this – you know that I am a centuries old vampire, a lot older than you, and I have to keep myself healthy. It is a tough job to keep the vampire throne with the young blood around. I also have a smart fitness band in case this stops working”.

“The old age catches up with us all, doesn’t it? At least, you are immortal”.

“Being immortal has been a curse for too long, old friend. It is one advantage that you have, because you don’t really exist according to both science and religion, and therefore anything of this existence bother you less. I believe that you hold the key to the past, present and future. So, at least buy a mobile phone so that we can contact you in case the armageddon begins” remarked Dracula.

“I see that they have changed how the world works for you, but will that change mine?” wondered Adam.

“Yes, you should at least buy a smart watch or a fitness band, for they are the best of the Smart Wearable. Remember that you were created out of the unexpected. So, at least be health conscious. Search for a few of such items at Flipkart, one of the leading online electronic commerce websites”. advised Dracula.

“So be it. Who doesn’t want a  Smart Home? I have wanted a lot, but have managed to have very little” said Adam, as the blood moon spread its colours through the sky.

Internet and Speed

I have never really had a good experience with mobile internet, which is why I am not that much of a fan of having internet on my phone. It applies to almost every mobile network as there has been some problem here and there. I usually use my Wi-Fi for my mobile and even when I am going somewhere else, I try to keep my dongle with me with hope to connect it somewhere. The problems with my mobile internet connections were the high costs, slow speed and the lack of interesting plans.

I remember reading about 3G at one point. It was so big at that time, and now the time has come for 4G. I have never really been a consistent follower of a network, and has had my history of changing through them. 4G becomes a good reason to choose Airtel in this world of so many mobile phone networks when nothing really works with the mobile internet. We hope for something and we never really get them as we keep waiting. May be, 4G with its speed, can change this situation.

We have wasted a lot of time with the lack of speed. With movie, music and video download, it has been quite natural. When something like that happens, we are provided with no option but to wait. There are times when we have trouble in loading some sites and it proves to be eternal – we wait and wait. At the end of the day, the only thing that we get is the opportunity to wait. Do we pay for that opportunity to wait, like paying for a dog which bites us? Is it the right thing to do when better options are available?

Well, vampires are supposed to be immortal and so are the angels. The Devil will also agree. But some network connections are those which test your mortality as a human being. Forget the downloads, because some cases cannot even come close to that – they make me afraid to download because we have to wait so much. Do we want to use that opportunity to wait as if it is what we get and it is what we deserve? Don’t we deserve better in this age of more modern technology?

In a world in which nobody has time to wait, Airtel 4G is going to be interesting. Patience is no longer considered a virtue as things happen so fast. There is a lot of value for time, unless you are jobless as I am; still I don’t have enough time in a day. The available 24 hours in a day never prove to be enough for me and I hope for me! So, I can guess how valuable it is for people who have jobs. So, this never-ending wait is never a good thing. Everything needs to be faster, and it should begin with the internet.

My hope about Airtel 4G is to change my idea about mobile internet in a positive way. It hasn’t been that great related to any mobile operator, as something terrible happens every time. The mobile internet has been my long time enemy with 2G and 3G, and it is something which should change with the new high speed 4G mobile internet from Airtel. I have seen the advertisement about the same already, and I believe that the most of the people have gone through that already.

The new option can get rid of a lot of problems as Airtel is the first telecom operator to come up with the 4G services and it happens across 296 cities across India as this goes nation wide. There is the option of free home delivery of the 4G SIM card and it is to be available at the same rate of 3G SIM too. It is actually just one tweet away – #GetAirtel4G. You can check for the 4G option from Airtel for more details about the same as you get the same data benefits of the existing 3G pack along with enjoying high speed 4G at no extra cost: http://www.airtel.in/4g/
