When you were a child, you were likely amazed at the graphics on the Atari 64 until Mattel released their Intellivision video game system. Then you realized how outdated the Atari really looked. As new systems arrived on the scene, for example, the ColecoVision, the Intellivisions graphic paled in comparison.
As an adult, your point of view is most likely a little different. Technology changes quickly and your most recent state-of-the-art gadget becomes obsolete when the bigger and better thing arrives.
Technology is constantly changing
This rapid technological development is not something that should be a surprise to anyone. We consistently see new technology come out with a better version right on its tail. Consumers shouldn’t expect technologies to last long in today’s constantly advancing environment.
Need tech help? Ask your kid
The kids who are growing up today understand 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 frequently adapt to new things faster than adults, and the generation that is growing up today, is very versatile when it comes to these rapid technological changes.
Today’s hot tech is tomorrow’s obsolete operating system
Considering the rapid changing world of technology, it should be no real surprise that the same goes for operating systems. Businesses like Apple, Google, and Microsoft come out with new and improved operating systems frequently, both to stay ahead of the competition and to improve the user experience. If you do not adopt new systems when they come out, it won’t be long before your computer is very outdated. Change is inescapable, if you do not adapt to it, you’ll be left in the dust and struggling to reap the rewards that that change has to offer.
