Ever Advancing Technology
Technology is constantly changing. You want a new phone? Wait six months. New car? Wait a year. You want a new TV at the highest resolution? Wait two years. As soon as we pay off one piece of technology, the latest and greatest upgrade is available. And we love it because we are a technology-driven society.
In the realm of mobile devices, iPhone remains at the pinnacle of technology, although Samsung''s Galaxy line of phones is a close second. Both of these phones are constantly being updated to outpace each other in the consumer''s mind, and it is working. People will upgrade their phone every year – at the cost of the phone, without any rebates from the service provider – to keep up with the latest in mobile technology. From fingerprint scanners to facial recognition, mobile devices have come a long way since the 1980s when they were introduced as the must-have for the business professional. Now, the latest and greatest mobile device is the must-have for the high school senior as well as the business professional.
Tesla is at the forefront of automobile technology. With their entirely electric vehicles, the company is making a huge splash in the industry. Being able to drive a couple hundred miles without ever using a drop of gasoline is a big perk, and other car companies are taking note, and working increase their fuel efficiency. They will never match an all-electric vehicle, but they are also coming out with other technology to drive up sales of their cars. General Motors vehicles are coming equipped with Internet in the U.S., and other car companies around the world are looking for ways to improve the customer experience, while reducing cost and increasing fuel performance.
You thought that 1080p was "full HD", but now there are 4K TVs that have even higher resolution. Do we need TVs that are six feet across and curved? No. But that is where the TV technology has taken us. And if you wait, there will be better TVs at higher resolutions that totally immerse us in the viewing experience.
