The world has changed more in the past 20 years than in the previous 200 all due to the rapid evolution of technology, especially with the advent of the internet. Technology has been implemented across all areas of business, especially marketing & SEO. What was once a dream to be able to talk into a device and see someone else is now a daily reality. What was once a dream that you could actually send a message to someone without leaving a voice recording is now a reality. In fact, you can now send and receive messages back and forth to someone using a mobile devices, something unheard of over 20 years ago.
The boom around the internet has also taken new avenues where people can now get and send information to multiple providers who can access this information and use it to help you. For example, I created an account with one of my credit card companies and I can now use my mobile device to quickly gain information about my account including things like balance, last transaction or transactions, when my payment is due, etc. I can even make a payment to my credit card from my bank account which was saved off during the account creation process, all while sitting on the bus and using my mobile device. I can make financial transactions quickly and easily in the same manner.
On my way to a party, I did a quick search on my phone for a bouquet of flowers that can be delivered to the home prior to my arrival. This was all done with my mobile device, while sitting on a bus, without me even speaking to anyone. In fact, due to a previous search I did, my browser remembered the flowers I looked at before and quickly led me toward that same selection, making the process very quick and easy. Incredible advancements in the way we use the internet and how we purchase things is a fascinating shift in the way our lives work. It’ll be exciting to see where technology leads us and where we’ll be in the next decade compared to how far and quickly we’ve come in the past decade.
Innovation in technology has been at its greatest level since anyone can remember. There is a drive toward discovering new ways of improving lives, making life easier and making the world a better place to be and much of this is through technology. There have been so many technological breakthroughs coupled with creative genius and the drive to push new products out to market, that it’s difficult to keep up with all of the rapid advancement that keeps coming forward. The millennial generation has grown up with technology and embraces it as if it was a separate appendage. How its used and how it can be used as well as the drive and fortitude to put it on an app or create a website to host it or extend a device that will communicate with it in a seamless manner is an engine of innovation that’s coming out of all corners of the globe.
With the recent surge in the Internet of Things, or IOT, many devices are now being extended to support open communication with a range of new technology-driven homes and appliances. By communicating with your refrigerator, you can find out what’s inside, how long things have been there, and what you need for that special something you plan on creating tonight. You can adjust the lights in your home without being home, or turn on the heat or AC before you arrive. You can feed the pets and start the oven or record that special show you’ve been wanting to see. All this can be done from the touch of a button on your mobile device while you’re away from home.
You can record and play back camera footage from cameras within your home or outside your home. You can even simulate answering your door when the doorbell rings. It’s an exciting time to see all the new stuff that’s coming down the pike and it’s also exciting to think about what will be coming next. While we’re surrounded by all this great new technology, you can still feel free to open up a book and curl up and relax by a reading light, but it’s also easier to download any book you want and read it from your device.
