Technology of the Future CIS 105 June 11, 2011 All of our technology has come a very long way over the years. From the very first phone or television that was invented, it is unbelievable how these same devices look and function in today’s world. You now have flat screen televisions instead of tube televisions. We advanced from the first phone to now having satellite phones and cell phones. Modern technology is very amazing in one aspect, but very crippling to us in another.
We have become so dependent on it that we would be lost without all of our gadgets. The day that smart phones were invented we started seeing a different way to communicate with others. The most famous of smart phones is probably Apple iPhone. This device is the ultimate smart phone. There have been so many versions of this phone since it first came out in January of 2007. It was first introduced by Steve Jobs when he was attending the MacWorld Conference and Expo.
Apple has upgraded this prototype three more times since the very first one was introduced. The iPhone is more like a small palmtop computer than an actual cell phone. You can use this device for a number of different reasons. It can be used to make and receive phone calls, watch movies, listen to music, surf the Internet, send and receive e-mails and text messages. You can also use it to take pictures and videos. This device uses virtual buttons and controls that appear on the screen.
It uses sensors and circuitry to monitor changes in a particular state. When you place your finger on the screen it changes the state that the device is monitoring. The iPhone has advanced very fast over the last few years. They have done many upgrades to it from having a GPS receiver, more storage and better camera, to two separate cameras. When you stop and think about how the computer technology has advanced over the last 10 years, it makes you wonder what the possibilities are for future technology.
Could it be possible that we might not have some of the items that we now use or will they just be upgraded to better versions like other things have been over the years? Years ago nobody ever thought that a cell phone could be as useful as a computer, or that we would have a portable phone at all. This makes you wonder what the future really does hold for us as far as technology advancement. References Copyright © 2011 Discovery Communications, LLC. The number-one nonfiction media company
