Even televisions and radios have miniaturized into wristwatches like Dick Tracy of years gone by. Maybe it's just me being an old fart, but I remember a life before all these technological wonders. I look at all these advances as a World Expo come to pass and wonder what the future will hold. It's dreams come true for many and the demand for such products is increasing.
As little as thirty years ago, wearable computers meant this...
It got a little better with laptops. Although it still was cumbersome because you had to put on the harness and then position your laptop.
With the advent of wearable computers it looks like this...
Yes, I'm an old fart and fairly stuck in my ways. While I can be an innovator, those times of being first in line have long ago departed with advancing age. I kind of image myself as my grandmother who had her old, tube type radio and her reaction to...
a transistor radio with all this miniaturization of technology.
Although I keep abreast of the new technology and what is available out there, it still is shades of science fiction to me. I take the attitude; "It's interesting but I'm not going to run out and buy it."
While I'll admit it's great, I also understand the built in obsolesce in today's technology. Within six months or less a newer, more advanced product will be on the market. Why do I need it right now? Convince me and I'll buy it. But be warned, I'm a tough sell.
If it ain't broken beyond repair, don't replace it. Is my going strategy. If I have to have it. I'll get it, but otherwise I'll pass.
