Technology Then and Now. . . . We Have Come Along Way Baby
Do you realize how
fact technology is growing? Even technology items you purchase
today, may become obsolete within several months, because something
newer and better has been created. In fact, it might be difficult
for some to keep up with the new technology.
Often I have heard
people say, “I don't like computers or I do not have a cellphone.”
Like it or not computers are here and they are used for just about
everything. Ministers are preaching their sermons from Ipads. I
have even seen Ipads in the retail store advertising jeans and
different items in various departments. I want to talk about just a
few of the new technologies.
1. GPS (Global
I am so happy we
have GPS, but where was it years ago when I needed it? I recall when
I first married, my husband and I were traveling South trying to read
a map. We had trouble with that, because we were suppose to travel
South, but were traveling North in error. Yes I eventually learned
how to read a map, but the GPS is so much nicer. 200 years ago, who
would have imagined that we would have real live time when driving.
What I like about the GPS is that it will let you know when there are
delays, possible accidents, and even reroute you.
2. Cars then and
Karl Benz drove the first automobile
in Mannheim, Germany at a top speed of 10 mph. Today there are
several cars that reach top speeds ranging from 223 mph to 288 mph.
While the normal speed limit on the highway is 65-70 miles per hour,
this would not have been thought of many years ago.
Listed below are some of the fastest cars in the world.
Why am I not
surprised when Forbes.com states a flying Car may go on sale in 2017.
Co-Founder and CEO of Juraj Vaculik at Southwest in Austin, Texas,
talks about moving flying cars to market sooner than later.
4. Google Engine
Do you take for
granted the online Google searches that are available for just about
anything that you might want to know about? Pick any subject and do
a Google search to find the information you want. You can do Google
searches to find a house, find a person, or to learn a new craft.
Have you ever Google searched your name? Try it you may be
surprised at what you find. Do you want to know what someone's house
looks like? Google search their address. This is so much faster
and so much easier.
Are We There Yet?
Not quite, but there is a prediction of the possibility of the brain
controlling the computer. This may be particularly important to
individuals that have been paralyzed. A brain chip can be placed in
the brain to control electrical impulses which are determined by the
brain's thoughts. Testing is already in progress.
