Best Location Tracking Apps For Android And iOS
“There is nothing permanent, except change”, said the great greek philosopher – Heraclitus. ‘Change’ is the way of life, and ‘change’ is life hereinafter. The era of mobile phones has thoroughly changed the lives of human beings inside-out. Within a click, we are now connected with our loved ones, talk to them and even see them, though being thousands of miles away. Innovation, thus, has brought us close enough to experience each and every moment in a close encounter.
While innovation has served its purpose, men have also found ways to manipulate the information.
