Times Square Bomber

leave a comment »

This weekend there was a reported but failed attempt at a car bombing in NYC’s Times Square. Apparently the bombing was failed because the creator of it had used the wrong kind of fertilizer. You may be wondering what this has to do with communications and society. Well this weekend I was out camping and my friend got a message on his iPhone from the NY Times saying there was an attempted car bombing in Times Square. Without his phone, we would have never even knew what had happened until we got home Sunday night. The technology kept us informed with today’s world news. This is why technology has a large effect on how the media affects us.
