Most people who follow technology probably find themselves often amazed by new developments. Whether we look at phones, computers, video games, or other examples of technology, we see new developments frequently made. Plus, the rate of these developments is increasing.

For example, 20 years ago most people did not have a home computer, and had probably never heard of Microsoft or Windows. Surely we all remember how recently cell phones became common.

New products with constantly improved technology are being released at a faster and faster rate. In the last 15 years, humankind has probably made more technological advancements than in the 100 years before that. And the rate of technological advancements is continuing to increase exponentially.

Much of the technology that we have now will probably be obsolete in 10 years. In 10 years, we will look back on these gadgets and computers in the same way we currently look back on the technology from 50 years ago.

Because of how rapid technological progress has been happening, there is a continued need and desire for people to monitor it. Of course, there are many magazines, blogs, and conferences for people to share information about new technology, new gadgets, and so on. In the coming years, I think we are going to see even more ways to monitor technological inventions and spread the word about new technology.

Do you remember how impressive and nifty the iPod was when it first came out, or the iPhone when it came out? I think soon we are going to have new products like that coming out from all sorts of companies at an even more rapid rate. Imagine if every few days we have products being released that are as new and impressive as the iPhone was. I think that is what is going to happen.

In analogy, new technological gadgets will be released at the rate books are released to book stores. Of course, that will lead to a lot more competition between the new technological gadgets. For that reason, I think the main focus will be on reviews and other systems of rating newly released technological gadgets.

Regarding technology, it is hard to imagine what life will be like 10 or 20 years down the line.

We have exciting days ahead!
