The Constantly Changing Face of Technology

On August 8, 2012, in Uncategorized, by Social Media

If you were a kid when the Atari 64 came out, you were probably amazed at the graphics. Then Mattel released the Intellivision, and by comparison, the Atari’s graphics were outdated. Each time a new video game system was released it managed to trump the last one in graphics and game play.

As an adult, your perspective is probably a little different. Technology changes very rapidly and your most current state-of-the-art gadget becomes obsolete when the bigger and better thing comes out.

Technology is constantly changing

Technology has always been changing, and as more and more comes out, this change speeds up. This does not surprise anyone. That being said, it should not shock consumers either. In today’s constantly evolving environment, most of us purchase technology knowing that it will become outdated in a few months.

Need tech help? Ask your kid

Kids are usually quicker to learn new things then their parents, and therefore, are better at adjusting to the changing technological environment. If you are in your 40s then you grew up without the Internet, and your kids don’t remember when the Internet didn’t exist. So, as technology advances at an progressively rapid pace, younger generations are going to more readily adjust to these changes and accept new technologies.

Today’s hot tech is tomorrow’s obsolete operating system

Considering the rapid changing world of technology, it ought to be no real shock that the same goes for operating systems. Businesses like Apple, Google, and Microsoft come out with new and improved operating systems frequently, both to stay ahead of the competition and to improve the user experience. If you don't adopt new systems when they come out, it won’t be long before your computer is very outdated. Change is unavoidable, if you do not adapt to it, you'll be left in the dust and unable to reap the rewards that that change has to offer.
