Concern about the Future of Technology

April 19, 2014

I suggest you read two articles.

The first is from folks who make their living cheerleading technology. The article “What Does the Recent Tech Stock Downturn Meant? The Truth Is Nobody Knows.” is an admission that the future of technology is—well—not too clear. With increasing class tension in the City by the Bay, I suppose some reflection is warranted. I sort of knew this when I was a wee lad. Apparently for those surfing technology, the notion that the fancy analytics systems with their clever predictive methods are clueless is interesting. I assume not even insider information is illuminating the dark corners of what seems to be a somewhat trivial issue compared with some of the national and international news.

The second is “We got Bookies to Predict the Future of Tech.” Crowdsourcing the future is not too interesting. I checked out the investment and threat markets and concluded that the Ivory Tower folks had time on their hands. This article contains a quote I noted. The comment is about Google Glass. Few items of headgear trigger assaults, so I was intrigued:

“Simply put, we don’t feel like this will catch on with the wider consumer base in remotely the same way as the iPhone since we feel the majority will still perceive it as something of a gimmick not relevant to their daily lives, especially for the cost. Therefore we are happy to make it a long shot that this item ever outsells the latest iPhone in any year until the end of the decade.”

Maybe self assembly will be more productive?

    I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my difficulty.
    You’re amazing! Thanks!

    However, out of those four wash cycles, you may find the foundational features
    you will need to get a clothes clean. This machine offer rotary electronic controls with LED and adaptive logic that
    make it easy to select and monitor wash cycles.
    That fridge that’s a few years old is probably not doing just as much damage as that freezer inside the basement
    through the parent’s house for the electric
    bill. This timer, which may be set up to a day, could be
    used to turn your machine on or off at the certain time.

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she maintains the thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of
    it. Therefore that’s why this piece of writing is outstdanding.
    Thanks!

    Continuation contains breakouts and trends, whilst
    Reversal specializes in trading ranges at the edges, betting against a breakout.
    I have a love shrine, and I am here to tell you that when I
    assemble it, it worked — and is constantly.
    The dog track immediately “takes out” its share from each wagering pool, whether it
    really is win, place, or show, or perhaps an “exotic”
    bet just like a quiniela or trifecta. Novice gamblers usually
    choose to wager with a horse choose the way it looks, due to a sentimental
    story or even based on its name but this is not how you can make money in the track.

    Finally, when Escobar does hit the box office, you will want to go see it.
    It is useless to bet to get a wining team if their significant players
    are down with wounds.
