Conventionally, all passions tech were regarded as the preserve of nerds and loners, and not the stuff of haute couture and good style. This is undoubtedly no bigger the case. Technology is cool, and if it wants to sell, it has to be a little naughty too.
Arguably this change was initiated by the venerated Steve Farm outs. Before the release of the iPod, the tech pioneer famously mean, ‘We made the buttons on the screen look so good you’ll want to lick them.’ Since the iPod, not sole the buttons but the entirety of Apple’s range is beautifully crafted. Herein whoppers the success of the brand: the smooth surfaces, the curved corners, the fall short of of fuss and preserve of white and silver – all of it looks good adequately to lick. And it goes without saying that the staff in Apple Amasses are the best dressed on the high street. Other tech industries were perspicacious to catch up. Here then, we have a look at the hottest trends prepossessing off in technology in 2016.
We have to start with Apple. News are already rife surrounding the possible release of new products this year. Top of the tip is the iPhone7 and potentially a 4-inch iPhone 6s mini. More stirring than either is the launch of the Apple Watch 2. After a critical amount of hype, the release of the first Apple Watch in April concluding year was an anti-climax. It was expensive, clunky, and regarded as superfluous by diverse. Wearable technology is here to stay however, and Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, appears adamant not to spend their head start on smart watches. In March this year he on unveil the Apple Watch 2. Incorporating face in the good old days b simultaneously and better sleep tracking, Cook and the team hope that this consequence proves more lickable than its predecessor.
2016 will also see the return of Google Glass. Those at Google HQ command also be hoping that the second generation of their doggedly anticipated product will not be the damp squib that the first was. In 2012 Google fluffed into the fashion scene dressing models on the runway at the Diane Von Furstenberg display at New York Fashion Week in Google glasses. The futuristic schemes were more Star Trek than star-studded, and gained a lackluster at subdue (aghast at worst) response from fashion scribblers in seventh heaven over. Techies were no more impressed. A tepid retort from the market, occasionally peeking into outrage past the suspected privacy infringement inherent in Google Glass, led to the commodity being quietly dropped shortly afterwards. However a re-launch is on its way, headed by Tony Fadell, the man behind the iPod. Assorted obtrusive than the Apple Watch, we will see whether Fadell can declare Google Glass palatable on the high-street.
Blogging certainly has nerdy sprouts. The first words viewers heard on the first ever Idol Trek broadcast in 1968 were ‘Captain’s log.’ The series lacked on to popularize the term ‘log’. ‘Weblog’ was coined by Jorn Barger in 1997, which was laster truncated to ‘blog.’ Fast forward two decades, 2016 looks to be the year when the army of sites hosted on the internet reaches 1 billion. This mount rebel is principally due to the ease which individuals can set up their own blogs. Some of the master web hosting providers such as 1&1 offer users near-instant province name registration and nifty tools to aid site construction. Creates blogs are therefore burgeoning at fever pitch. The rise in outstanding fashion bloggers who not only dress well but know their way about SEO, AdSense and affiliate marketing are set to make more money from trade-marks drooling for endorsement than ever before. Not only has web-building technology evolve into fashionable, it is also highly profitable.
