New technologies are being discovered and are brought to use everyday, making our life simpler and better. But supporting every technology, lies the wires, that destroy all the fun of using them.
There are things powered by Bluetooth and other wireless technologies that can cut the cords, but most of us don’t use them, or are unaware of them. This article outlines most of the things that have replacements, which will help bring the cords out of your life.
1. Start With The Landline In Your Drawing Room
Mobile devices have already replaced the landlines decades ago. But, if you still have that long wired telephone sitting in your home, go ahead and get a cell phone.

If you still use a PC at your home than try replacing it with a laptop. If you still want to use your PC, then buy a wireless mouse and a keyboard. These are the two things with wires that you have to struggle with daily.
3. Use WiFi And Not Ethernet
If you are still living in the rock age and using the Ethernet cords and hubs to connect to the internet, then it’s high time to get a WiFi capable router.

4. Leverage The Power of Bluetooth

Not just that, it has many more features too, like sending Messages, watching photos and many others.
