A mobile device intended to make communication with other people easier and more efficient, e.g. a BlackBerry, iPhone, mobile phone, or laptop computer. Said technology frequently fails to work as intended, so the word "technology" carries notes of frustration and irony as well as appreciation. Since mobile technology devices evolve quickly, it is much easier to say "technology" than to refer to them by model name.
1. "I can't find the freeway entrance. Can someone use their technology to get directions from Google Maps? 2. "I'm trying to look his number up, but my technology is taking forever to load the page... god, this technology is so useless." 3. "I'm so tired of using this technology, I just want you here with me." - Justin Timberlake
