Communications technology takes on many forms like the public phone system, or radio and television. However, in the last five years, since 2005, there has been a technology explosion that has opened up many new forms of communication. There is wireless, which even though the forerunner was the walkie-talkie (a radio communications device) has given way to the iPhone, and other mobile devices. There is Voice over IP which uses the Internet to make phone calls. There are data, audio, video, and other transfer methods that only recently have been widely commercially adapted. The range of communication is global in ways that looked like science-fiction 10 years ago.
