In an age of computers, gadgets, gizmos, cell phones, and electronics everyone wants to be the first to produce, own, or buy the latest technology. Just like athletes competing to be bigger, faster, and stronger we want our gadgets to have bigger storage capacity, run faster, and be strong enough to handle all of our technology needs.
For many people, having the latest technology is no problem. The newest cell phone came out; many will go out and buy it. A larger, thinner TV with a clearer picture just hit the shelves, get rid of the old TV for the bigger, better, newer version. However, technology changes so quickly that the average person is not able to always have the latest gadget or electronic the minute it’s available. One advantage to the ever changing face of technology, on the other hand, is that the older versions of certain gadgets and electronics become more affordable and accessible as newer versions are created.
So just what are the latest technology fads and newest gadgets that people just must have? It seems that most people are looking for the gadget that will make life easier. They want one gadget that will do more than one task so they can work on their multi-tasking skills as well. People want to be entertained, keep up with news, and write their grocery list all with the same electronic gadget. Another aspect people look for in the latest technology is the largest amount of memory or storage possible in the smallest, most portable container possible.
Take for example, the new iPhone and iPod from Apple, the latest technology in cell phones. At the very least, it is of course an electronic gadget that makes phone calls. But it also acts as an electronic photo album, PDA, computer, game system, camera, video camera, and any other tool or gizmo you can think of all rolled into one small, sleek looking gadget that everyone wants to have. The must-have iPhone allows the lucky owner to basically take care of all of their daily appointments, calls, and tasks from one location. Although its appearance may have gotten smaller, the latest technology in cell phones has definitely gotten bigger, faster, and stronger.
