The Cloud, the iPad, innovation and changes.. really?!?!
I know, I said it before.. but this time REALLY REALLY REALLY I will keep this blog alive!!! OK.. yes.. then..
Yep, the Event!! the iPad is finally coming to the Italian shore, just in time for the Summer season, thus we will witness an horde of tech-savvy people hangin’ around some of the most beautiful location looking and fiddling with the new toy, someone in awe, others wearing smuggy faces when spotting the “uhu???” flashy question mark hoovering on the head of the beach-towel neighbours, others with childish smiles whilst playing a fake guitar, another great app…
Still, the fashionable tablet from Apple (which incidentally has overtaken Microsoft as capitalisation @ NYSE) will massively change the way society will approach technology and IT… and, you know what, if you couple this “innovation” with another massive one, cloud computing, you have created a really nice revolution..
Figure out this.. EVERYONE will be in the position, using two very, very, very old tools named HANDS, and some instruments called FINGERS to access the utmost computing power pressing a silly icon on a screen.. the power you need to, say, transform the set of photos of your toddlers into a nice movie, is not on your “pc” anymore but “somewhere”, and incidentally you don’t care where.. but pressing the “Transfom into Movie” you do the trick, you create the magic, and without having to pass through a “keyboard”… this is to start with, but since you are all clever folks, no need to explain any further.. ah, yep, one minor thing.. you pay when you actually run the application, not upfront and for once-in-your-lifetime use (as I did with Prezi…damn..) (nice tool, though..)
So, two of the most innovative technology solutions could combine to create a much larger innovation and impact.. is it really this simple? Is innovation always there when something comes to the surface, when “it makes the press”??
Some little argument here… Innovation is sometimes a “big word” and a concept we should handle with care… centuries ago “magic” was applied quite often in the wrong way..
I rather think, and love to assume that innovation is not in the objects, innovation and more interestingly evolution is in the brain cells that we need to put into work to give some piece of plastic a decent meaning in our daily life..
pretty much what happened when in the Paleolithic someone found a sharp piece of stone..
It all comes down to the brain.. have we still got one in fully functional mode?!?
Have a great eve!
