Entry 7: The Future Of Technology

Alright everyone I’ve been at this for almost 2 months now and I don’t plan on slowing down. This week I’m going to cut to the chase, no pleading for views or critiques. Let’s get to it, on to the future of technology!

First off, if you haven’t checked out Google Glass, you should. It’s a virtual reality peripheral that will allow you to access basic information and apps on the go. Basically it’s a set of eye glasses that connect to your Apple or Android device that let you look up information through your voice. Simply say “ok, glass” and then your requested search and wham! The info you desire is delivered directly to your retina. You can take pictures, record video, google pretty much anything, view the weather, and those are just the beta features. a year or two from now and the possibilities are limitless. Think of the power of your strongest and fastest computer combined with the sleekness of a pair of sunglasses. To say I’m excited about this would be to say that a few dinosaur species died out. I think you get it.

Now! Onto the next big gaming system. I’m not going to address the PS4 simply because it’s specs have been released and I’m not a Sony fan. So, The Xbox Durango is on the table. First off, I’m sick of people calling it the Infinity or the 720, it has an official code name. Use it. So, a few (read A LOT) of people have been complaining about the rumor that the Durango will be an “always online” console. A lot of people dislike this because internet connection isn’t as reliable in some places as it is in others. I for one have no problem with a console that is always connected to the internet. If you don’t live in the boonies, this feature isn’t a problem for you. Besides, I don’t see the lack of wireless support or internet support in certain areas as an individual failure but as a failure of the internet providers. America, ALL OF AMERICA, deserves reliable internet access. Everyone knows it wouldn’t be that difficult to make it happen so internet providers… make it happen!!

Now, while we’re on the subject of internet connectivity, let’s talk a little bit about Google Fiber. While I’m not the most educated person when it comes to this topic, Google Fiber could potentially revolutionize the way the internet is delivered to pretty much every single American. It’s in its testing phase but if it were to prove successful it could provide internet services that would dwarf any delivery system that’s currently available. The way I see it, Google has been making money for quite a few years while keeping its greatest innovations to itself. If the powers-at-be of Google have any common sense, they’ll release all of their inventions at the same time and completely dominate the electronic market.

So, this entry isn’t funny so much as it is informative, and for those of you who appreciate my humor, I’m sorry. I do believe that I’ve addressed a few topics that may change all of our lives within the next year or so. Between Google Glass and Google Fiber, the way we access the internet, and ultimately interact with each other, may change drastically within the next few years, and I for one cannot wait.
