Technological Obsolescence

Its been a while since I posted something. Last 10 days were hectic and didn’t find time to put down my thoughts. Yesterday I flew from Hong Kong to Los Angeles – long flight and the new movie options were not exciting at all. So I decided to watch Mission Impossible. What caught my attention was Tom Cruise using Usenet & primitive version of email. It looked so dated that I almost wondered whether I ever used those tools.

Technological Obsolescence is taking place at the speed of light. Last 10 years have seen Mobile Handsets changing a lot – emails getting associated with gmail – people using phrases like ‘just skype me’ for messaging or calls. It will be interesting to see how quickly iPhone, Facebook, Joost, Skype, Gmail become obsolete – any guesses?
