When you were a kid, you were probably impressed by the graphics on the Atari 64 until Mattel came out with their Intellivision video game system. Then you realized how out-of-date the Atari really looked. As new systems arrived on the scene, for example, the ColecoVision, the Intellivisions graphic paled in comparison.

As an adult you have a deeper perspective on technology. It changes quickly. These days, as soon as a new state-of-the-art gadget is released the last one becomes obsolete.

Technology is constantly changing

This rapid technological development is not something that should be a surprise to anyone. We consistently see new technology come out with a better version right on its tail. Consumers shouldn’t expect technologies to last very long in today’s constantly advancing environment.

Need tech help? Ask your kid

The kids who are growing up today know how quickly technology changes, every birthday there is a bigger and better system for them to pine after. And these kids adapt to these new technologies faster then their parents who didn’t even mature with the Internet. Kids usually adapt to new things faster than adults, and the generation that is growing up today, is incredibly versatile when it comes to these rapid technological changes.

Today’s hot tech is tomorrow’s obsolete operating system

Taking all of this into consideration, consumers should not be taken off guard when their computer OS becomes outdated. Companies like Microsoft, Google, and Apple have to continually come out with new operating systems to stay ahead of their competition. If you decide to fight against a new OS when it comes out, you will only be, ultimately, left in the dust. There is a reason that these companies make new operating systems and embracing the constantly changing nature of technology will help you be on the cutting edge of the next great thing.
