Something About Changing Tech, Changing Times

I have a co-worker who gets frustrated by technology and how fast things are changing. Everyone knows that as soon as one phone is released its just going to get replaced by a newer model a year later. Technology is something that has planned obsolescence as a part of the whole business model.

Market forces cause decision makers to make hard choices in the future of their products. What we want now might not be what we want later. It’s important to be adaptable and fluid in life especially when it comes to devices. Even the very software and hardware that connects us can change rapidly and often times in a surprising way.

Being able to learn new things is vital to keeping us all relevant to what is happening today. Tomorrow is always upon us and we have to be ready because what is cutting edge today could be out of date in a minute or two. As tech changes so does the times because we have gone from a Blockbuster Video world to a Netflix world. Everyone likes things in an instant today. Streaming is everything isn’t it. We even shop differently. Thanks Amazon.com for your click to order and arriving on my doorstep the next day or so.

I think the key thing we have to remember is that the source code for everything is changing and we have to learn to keep up. This sort of change is something I don’t mind I just need to remind myself that I have to keep evolving and adapting as time goes by.
