How we have changed (in technology and consumption) in the last ten years

Once assimilated and applied in the daily dynamics, it seems that the technological applications that in reality does not take too much time between us have always been there. This is reflected in the nebula of mind that springs when you try to remember since when we take them out. The end of 2019, for that change of decade ‘psychological’ (in reality, the official step will occur by the end of 2020), we are invited to do memory about those changes now so internalized and that, if repairs on them from outside, highlighted the profound social transformation.In 2009, we were already addicted to the mobile (to put in context, the iPhone broke through in 2007, the year in which he also started to get to know Facebook and popped the embryo of the Android operating system), while the universalization of the culture of the ‘smartphone’ would be after. WhatsApp messages, app downloads, photos, the obsession with the selfis, hours endless in the social networking, management, entertainment, games… we are in the present digital and in the of the hegemony of the screen, and not the computer.The mobile for good and evil (if you think of the cold, check us out on the street at all with the phone without attending to what is around, even when staying with friends in coffee shops, have something of the Black Mirror), has become an appendix fundamental. So much so that the strangeness surrounds us when we do not take over, plus sometimes we look at it compulsively, but that is another topic.An effect of the above is reflected in the progressive arrinconamiento of the landline phone. Remains in the home, and especially in companies and businesses, but for example in the houses is almost of ornament, and by that which by means of the same you have contracted the wifi and the television.First we were making the programs, series and movies when we could not see them at the time of the broadcast, but this practice was ended. The services streaming have amplified the concept of content to the letter, as we choose what, when and how.In the trend has been influenced by the culture leisure focused on the series and the vast and continuous supply of fiction. In the age of Netflix and HBO (and Amazon Prime Video, Movistar +, Netflix, Disney +…), it seems clear that the paradigm has mutated and that has noticed that the conventional television, almost strange to some young people.In this period we have extended the sale online, from a long time ago a mundane act more, and has lost the fear to put the card number. The reign of Amazon, the proliferation of apps and the boom of AliExpress, among other things, reflect the continued growth of the trend. In parallel, the small business has had to adapt itself to the modes of consumption (also in relation to contact with customers and brand image in networking).In comparison with other changes seem trivial and minor, although the common use of cards of payment contactless (no need to insert them in the slot of the atm or the data phone store) is another significant step. This adds to the already-veteran management through Internet banking and applications. The big questions that arise are whether within a time you will not need the card and up to when there will be money physical.The technological advances discovered and vislumbrados conducive to that we no longer are rare and science fiction issues such as the facial recognition, the chip identifiers that begin to be tested, hybrid cars, electric and that work alone, the possibilities of the 3D printers, augmented reality…however, aspects such as the first to raise a considerable misgivings about privacy (the location and the trail we leave in apps and the Internet also would be included here) and freedom because of the potential uses perverse. We must not forget that the Big Brother controls everything…
