2006 technology has been a year of great change. We started the year on the heels of the end of the dot-com bust and the beginning of the dawn of the new tech-savvy economy. This technology had all kinds of new and different methods of communication, social networking, and new devices that made the world small and cozy.
Technology became ubiquitous and cheap, but it was also a time when the boundaries between people and technology were becoming more and more blurred. We’ve come a long way since then, and we can’t say that 2006 was a bad year. But perhaps we can say that 2006 was the year that the first digital divide really hit home. The first time that people started communicating digitally, it was in a more physical way – they were taking pictures and posting them on the web.
In 2006 the technology industry was starting to boom, but there were still some problems. For one thing the cost of cell phones made the cell phone service less available to the masses, so cell phone service got more expensive each year. And finally, the internet was still in its infancy, which meant that people who had the opportunity to access the web were getting some pretty hefty bills.
In 2006, it was still a little too early to tell whether the internet was going to be a major force in how people looked at and/or used technology. But the technology industry was still in its infancy, and in a few short years it would become a major force in both the way we looked at and the way we used technology.
The internet was still in its infancy, but it could do pretty much everything we could do today. It was still very expensive, but it was definitely cheaper when we had broadband. Now that we have much more advanced broadband, it’s likely going to be cheaper and faster than the internet we had before. We’ll probably see more people with broadband get mobile phones and use the internet on their phones, but we’ll have to see how that works out.
We still have a ways to go, but I think we are going to see more advances in technology. We already do have a lot more advanced broadband than anything that we had before. The question is when and how we will adopt it.
Mobile broadband, which is basically the internet on your cell phone, is being used more and more by the general public. It’s also becoming more and more affordable. Most of the other things we had before that we still have are going to get even cheaper as technology advances.
I think we are going to see even more advances in technology than we did before because we are going to have to deal with more data. We are already seeing the advent of video conferencing and Skype, which is basically a video-on-demand computer service. We’ll be able to talk to our friends and family from all around the world more easily than ever before.
Most of today’s mobile devices are so cheap and powerful that people just can’t imagine how we will have to deal with more data in the future. But the good news is the technologies are here to stay. So when we say that people are getting increasingly affordable, we are not exaggerating. As more technology is released, we will continue to see more cool, affordable, and useful technologies become available.
The mobile phone is just one of these technologies. Think about your mobile phone the same way you would a handheld computer. You open your desktop computer and it has a full-sized keyboard, mouse, and pointing device. If you wanted to type on your phone you would probably have to go and purchase a separate keyboard and mouse. But with your handheld computer you could write with your thumb and use the device as a pointing device. The same idea applies to mobile phones.
