With the latest tech news today and any new technology being introduced, a number of things tend to get through my head. What are the benefits, is upgrading my old kit worthwhile and how expensive will it be? Checkout Tech Reviews for more info.
The answer to the last question is usually very expensive, because you are paying a premium price for the latest technology. Many of us are going to sit on the fence waiting for others to try it out and then let us know if all that is or not.
I’m sceptical about all the claims that the creators are going to feed us a lot of time and wonder what unknown problems or bugs are hiding around the corner to catch you out. Another reason I’m convinced that hanging back is wise is whether this new technology will become industry standard or just another lame duck. A lot of them we’ve seen in the past.
Even though a new technology will seem too good to be true now and again, it then delivers and strikes all the doubters dumb, including me. The Internet, mobile phones, USB, adsl and wifi are all great advances I’ve witnessed over the years, all changing the way we work and play.
In many of our lives they play a routine role and removing them now would cause more than just an inconvenience I am sure. I know that if I took away their Internet and mobile phone access, my kids would be up in arms.
Software hasn’t been slow to come forward either, with the dreams now becoming a reality ten years ago. As the hunger for faster, quieter, cooler, environmentally friendlier technology evolves, both hardware and software have made progress together.
Many companies have taken advantage of these new technology advances and watching the power struggles unfold between them has been interesting. Some so-called heavyweights are all but gone, whereas new kids like Google and Facebook are huge on the block.
Then there’s the big boys like Intel, Microsoft and Apple who’ve been around from the start. Always going strong and as energetic and ingenious as ever when it comes to product development and marketing.
