The goal of this paper is to discuss the up coming advances in technology in the computer world. The basis for this topic is that technology of the present is old and dull. Society has very short attention spans; once they are introduced to something, they get bored with it fast. But, the future contains things that we as a society have never seen before, giving us that feeling of excitement all over again. Getting off subject for a little bit, consumers consume because they want to, not because they are forced to or programmed to. The only reason that trends come and go every week is because of the ever so shortening attention span on the consumer. In reality, it is the consumer who forces the makers to come up with new and exciting products faster than the expiration date of milk. There has always been a misconception that capitalism controls the buyer, but in fact it is the buyer who controls the capitalist.
Companies who are not hip and up to date with the latest trend do not last very long, and the reason why these companies have such a short life span is because the consumer has a short attention span; acting only on want and not need. Thus creating the new for new products that no one really needs but must have because they are new.
Anyways, back to the topic of new and exciting advances in technology and consumerism, some areas of discussion that will be covered are nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and the disappearance of Blockbuster.
First off, what is nanotechnology anyways? Does this word really exist? It obviously must not since Word 2000 does not recognize at as a word. Or maybe it is because the word itself is so far in...
