If you were a child when the Atari 64 came out, you were probably amazed at the graphics. Then Mattel released the Intellivision, and by comparison, the Atari’s graphics were outdated. Every time a new video game system came out it managed to trump the last one in graphics and game play.
As an adult you have a deeper perspective on technology. It changes very quickly. These days, as soon as a new state-of-the-art gadget comes out the last one becomes obsolete.
Technology is constantly changing
The the fact is that technology will always change quickly. The fact that consumer technology turns over quickly should no longer be considered an amazing thing. Now-a-days, with the velocity at which things change, consumers must not expect something they buy now to be on the market a year from now.
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 generally adapt to new things faster than adults, and the generation that is growing up today, is very flexible when it comes to these rapid technological changes.
Today’s hot tech is tomorrow’s obsolete operating system
Taking all of this into consideration, consumers should not be taken off guard when their computer OS becomes outdated. Companies like Microsoft, Google, and Apple have to continually come out with new operating systems to stay ahead of their competition. If you decide to fight against a new OS when it comes out, you will only be, ultimately, left in the dust. There is a reason that these companies make new operating systems and embracing the constantly changing nature of technology will help you be on the cutting edge of the next great thing.
