Digital Technology

Everyday there is something new that is either in the works or have already been released. Technology is a growing phenomenon. It’s not hard to believe considering we’ve been living in a digital age. We use digital for nearly everything, from personal, to social, to even in the workplace. So when there’s new technology that has been released, it’s nothing foreign to people to immediately give it a try.

A little history and definition of digital technology: American engineers began developing digital technology in the mid-twentieth century. Their techniques were based on mathematical concepts suggested by the seventeenth-century German mathematician, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, who proposed a binary computing system. His innovation inspired such numerical codes as American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) that described objects with digits.

In the early 2000s, digital computers ranging from laptops to Internet networks came in many sizes and performed various tasks. Supercomputers performed complex mathematical calculations analyzing vast amounts of data. The Digital Data Broadcast System (DDBS) guided air-traffic control. Digital radiography converted analog signals of x-rays to create digital images. Digital information was stored on plastic disks with pitted patterns of 1s and 0s that lasers translated. By the early 2000s, digital cameras had transformed photography by recording color and light intensities with pixels. Also, digital compression of images and video was achieved by Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) and the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) codes. Animation had often been digitized with some films and cartoons being created entirely with computers.

Smartphone-Technology

Since the early 2000s we have been on a moving train of new and innovated technology. So hold on for the ride.

This blog is for the purpose of providing current and new technology releases and trends. I will locate, evaluate and review the new technology and provide my two sense.

As a person who has lived a portion of my life in the 90’s where the most technology we had was a beeper, I have a sense of understanding and appreciation of what is new innovated technology. Whereas, my little brother would think a new iPhone being released is not a big deal… For me it is.

So as we venture into this journey, get ready for a lot of new technology trends and products getting thrown your way.

In meantime, please enjoy this video that predicts the technology in 2020. Which if you think about… that’s not far off.
