I thought this comic might be a good way to end the week. It shows how fast technology continues to change. We no longer have generation gaps when technologies evolve as quickly as they do, we have gaps of only a few years. For example, it is hard to believe but before June 29, 2007 when the iPhone was announced, there was nothing on the market that you would recognize today as a smartphone. Recent articles suggest that this was the day that Google started over with Android to focus on the touch interface. Effectively, that date created a step function in mobile platforms and the rate of change and improvements in mobile continues to accelerate. Staying current on technology is a challenge we all must embrace.
