The tech industry is going through a rapid change and products which used to be “the talk of the town” are now taking a backseat. Soon, they will become obsolete.
Here are some examples:
For digital cameras there was a boom in the markets (from 2005 – 2010) all around the world but the boom was short lived. With the launch of Devices such as the iPhone 4, everyone was blessed with a great camera in their Smartphone. It is expected that within half a decade, there won’t be a shelf-place for low-cost cameras.
App stores have changed it all. The keyless ideology is accepted by everyone. In future, one can expect that there won’t be any car keys. Apps like OnStar RemoteLink offered by Chevrolet, will hopefully be introduced by other brands in the future. So, let’s hope that soon people will rely more on apps than keys to (un)lock and warm up their cars.
There was a time when watching movies on Blu-Rays and DVDs was considered to be the best way to get entertained. Not anymore. Netflix is the new rage for those who want to watch movies. The main reason behind this is convenient viewing.
It’s hard to believe, but people, even today, use dial-up Internet. If analyzed closely, a population of nine million people in the U.S. still uses dial-up Internet. It is expected that soon these people will be provided with the option of broadband and then there won’t be any room for dial-up Internet.
