Consumers today are faced with growing needs of what is the new trend in technology and how the product with will benefit them. The internet as we know it, has led to fantastically rapid changes to our world, from day to day or even major changes within hours, instantly changing our vision of the world, forcing us to adapt our thinking and beliefs to new tendencies and discoveries of a technical level, of a technological level and of innovation. With the quick advancement in technology, consumers must advance in the same manner, as well to keep the constant trend going for the next generations to come.Lakeisha WomackBusiness Communication 512The world as we know it, is changing right before our eyes and yet we still have problems with time and space.
Todays society is faced with long drawn out dilemma about what is the new hot item on the market for the up coming generations. The internet itself has come along way making technology more advance and super-efficient for the economy. As humanity progressed the needs grew rapidly, and people’s desire to fulfill as many needs as they could, grew as well. Science and technology go hand-and-hand with each other causing businesses to thrive and move forward with innovation and better products for the upcoming world, (Virjan, 2013).The internet is the greatest development of this century, producing profound changes in the way our social and economical lives are organized.
Today, our medic may perform surgery from afar, people can hold international conferences with participants from different corners of the world via satellite images without the participants needing to relocate, consumers can shop online from any country, sign documents, and advertise their company via publicity and marketing strategies, (Virjan, 2013).With today’s economy, the internet is integrated right inside the technology, making the product more compatible and user-friendly for individuals that are not computer literate. Just imagine going to your favorite restaurant and watching social posts from your friends literally jump off the menu with recommendations for what to order or getting a history lesson in urban growth as you ascend a building in which the elevator’s walls come to life with immersive video or putting on a headset to experience life from someone else’s perspective, (The Experience Era, 2018).The students of Faculty of Commerce at the Academy of Economic Studies conducted a survey that showed how the internet and technology plays a role in our live, (Virjan, 2013). See Chart below.0287655Figure 1:1 How technology is changing the way we run.The way consumers exercise today, has to do with technology. Consumers desire to exercise comes with relentless medical advice from doctors, that tell us that it can help prolong our lives, reduce the risk of all sorts of diseases including cancer, and possibly even stave off dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Take running for instance? It’s one of the cheapest and most convenient forms of exercise due to all you need is a pair of trainers and a T-shirt, no pricey gym membership is required. With apps like Nike Run Club, Strava, and Runkeeper addressed our desire for more data about our runs, but even they are growing stale-there’s only so much interest a split graph can hold for everyday runners. Now with technology, consumers can monitor their heart rate, keep track of how many miles they have walked, GPS tracking, and cellular connectivity all from wearable devices from Apple Watch and Android Wear, (Hon, 2018). How technology is changing the way we travel.Technology has minimized the time and effort it takes to plan a travel vacation.
Travelers can now easily choose their desired destinations and travel packages, find out the best places to go to and things to do, get tips on what to bring, best practices, and safety precautions, and book flights, accommodations, and travel services—– all in the comfort of their home or even at the office, or right wherever they may be. Due to technology, we have less paper to print and carry around while we travel—- fewer worries for us and less worrying about trees. With Online Booking, flight check-in, and mobile boarding passes, there’s no longer any need to spend a lot of time on ridiculous long lines. The whole process of securing a flight ticket to boarding the flight has significantly become quicker and more convenient, (Carolina, 2018).
The biggest contributions of technology to traveling is electronic payments. The use of Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, or Google Wallet makes purchasing, when aboard, easier and more secure. Nowadays, there’s no need to carry a lot of cash or a credit card while traveling. These advances make consumers happy to know that they don’t have to be target for credit card theft or losing cash when out shopping. As technology becomes universal, so does connection with people become cheaper and self-sufficient. The usage of smartphones and data connection or WIFI, travelers can stay connected with their families, friends, and pretty much anyone around the world using messaging apps, social media, e-mail, and voice or video call over the internet, (Carolina, 2018).
But consumers also must beware of lost or dropped signals when not in close range of a tower, so having constant internet connection can be a burden, instead of an advantage.The innovation of technology has vast ways of allowing us to communicate outside our regular norm of English-speaking consumers. One of the most difficult parts of traveling is communicating with the local. Some travelers are fluent in foreign languages, but some do not have the knowledge to grasp the language as others might. Advance technology has allowed travelers the simplicity of installing the translation apps like iTranslate and Google Translate, to help aid with making friends with the locals in that area.
Technology has become a moving force in the travel industry. It has been continuously dictating travel behaviors and improving travel technology over the years, making everyone experience personalized and unique, (Carolina, 2018).How technology changing the way we learn.Besides technology making things simpler for travelers, it is making classroom more proficient and productive for students to learn and stay focused. We know that scientists and technology enthusiasts often make predictions about “future” technologies, and sometimes, their predictions are not that far off.
All forms of technologies, in one way or another, will engage learners and bring education to life, making it more meaningful, interactive and relevant, (DiBlasi, 2013).
