Our Relationship with Technology

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 Then Mattel released the Intellivision, and by comparison, the Atari’s graphics were outdated.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

Well, now that you’re an adult, it’s time to stop being astounded. Technology changes quickly. Gadgets that were once considered state-of-the-art quickly become outdated when newer, better equipment hits the marketplace. How do you think all of those BlackBerry fans feel now that the iPhone has pushed it to the side?

Technology is constantly changing

This rapid technological progression is not something that should be a surprise to anyone. We consistently see new technology come out with a better version right on its tail. Consumers must not expect technologies to last very long in today’s constantly advancing environment.

Need tech help? Ask your kid

The kids who are growing up today recognize how quickly technology changes, every birthday there is a bigger and better system for them to pine after. And these kids adapt to these new technologies faster then their parents who didn’t even grow up with the Internet. Kids usually adapt to new things faster than adults, and the generation that is growing up today, is extremely versatile when it comes to these rapid technological changes.

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

Consumers should no longer be surprised when computer operating systems become quickly outdated. The fact remains, companies like Microsoft, Google, and Apple are continuously updating and adapting. Which means that they’re constantly perfecting new operating systems designed to make the computing process more user-friendly and enjoyable. You can either accept the new operating systems or fight them. If you choose the latter, though, remember one thing: You’ll be left behind with an obsolete system while your friends, and competitors, are experiencing the next big thing.
