    The two events that stood out the most to me during the slides were the graphics and PGP. In 1972, the Pong game was created which started the modern video game era. From then on more video games, paint programs, movies, and virtual reality came into play. The graphics on all of these continued to improve

    There were many advances in computing that occurred from 1981 to 1994.  Two events from the slides that we saw in class that drew my attention were in 1983 when Microsoft announced Word, (originally called Multi-Tool Word), and in 1988 when Pixar’s “Tin Toy” became the first computer-animated film to win an Academy Award.  These

    Overall, what I took from those slides is that everything is advancing. Whether it is storage device, PC, or software it is always being updated, more advanced, faster, and smaller. The amount of storage capacity is unreal nowadays compared to back then. Also, seeing some of the designer’s and innovator’s in this time frame got me

    The biggest change in technology I noticed in my life is the functioning speed of electronic devises. The speed of turning the phone on, browsing a web page, upload or download things to or from the internet, had all been faster and faster through the pass of time. In the Computer History images, we can

    There are so many technological advances that have occurred in our time it is hard to pick out the “biggest” advances!! As I grew up, from what I noticed one of the biggest technological advances that has occurred is the gaming consuls. I can remember getting my very first play station 1. The graphics were

    The world of technology today has become increasingly more and more efficient in every way possible. One of the biggest improvements we have had in the last 10-15 years is the internet. Those were the days when we used AOL and had to plug in an ethernet cable just to get on. Nowadays, all we

    There’s many advances in technology that I’ve been able to see in my lifetime. The first thing that comes to mind is that in the past all the phones, handheld game devices, and such were all controlled with buttons, and now it’s mostly all controlled via a touch screen. Something else that’s come to mind

  • TYLER SHOLL wrote a new blog post: Week 3 response, Technology over the years   6 days, 11 hours ago

    Some of the biggest changes I have noticed throughout my lifetime have been the size and memory of devices such as computers and phones. If you look back to early 2000’s the first edition iPod nano held only 500 megabytes and was smaller than the size my hand. Now apple has the iPod nano 7th

    I have witnessed many changes in technology in my lifetime.  As time goes on computers are getting faster and smaller.  When I was first introduced to computers I thought that they were incredible devices.  I could not fathom how someone could create something so smart and fast.  Over the years, huge brick-like monitors turned into

  • Lindsey Arnold wrote a new blog post: W3: Changes in Technology   1 week ago

    It is evident that technology has changed over the years, but I hadn’t realized how drastically technology has changed until Professor Van Camp showed us the evolution of technology from the 1800s to today in class on Wednesday.  I love to listen to music, therefore I am interested in the change of technology that involves

  • Melissa Farley wrote a new blog post: W3: Technology in my lifetime   1 week, 2 days ago

    Many different technological advancements have occurred during my lifetime. I can remember getting the first generation iPod touch when I was little and I thought it was the best thing out there. Looking back now, it was very thick and bulky and it didn’t even have a camera on it. Comparing my iPhone 5 to it shows in

    There are many changes in technology that have occurred during my lifetime. From what I can remember computers used to have monitors that used to weigh 40lbs. or more. Now we have ultrathin computer monitors and even a one-piece computer known today as the laptop. Next, we have tables, iPods, smartphones and even smartwatches. The

    I think that the biggest technology change in my lifetime has been growing up with a cellphone. Cellphones, at first, were used for calling and texting only. But as every year passes cellphones get more technological advances. What first started out as a one inch screen and a dial pad has now

    In my opinion, I think technology brings a lot to the table in terms of the work force.  Technology can do many things that even the most intelligent human beings cannot do. Technology moves at a faster rate than humans making them more capable of getting work done in a much faster time. Technology is

  • Franco Biondolillo wrote a new blog post: Week 2: Technology   1 week, 6 days ago

    In my opinion technology has been extremely beneficial to our everyday lives. Though there has been job loss due to robots taking over certain job positions, the overall spike in productivity and cost efficiency has been beneficial to the companies that are doing their best to please the consumer. One major technological upgrade has been

    Technology, for the most part, has been beneficial to us. In the labor force, the advancement of technology has allowed us create more types of jobs for people. Unfortunately, this advancement in technology also takes certain jobs away due to things like robotic technology. Another benefit is that technology also increases the size and availability

    Technology has changed our country dramatically. We definitely would not be where we are today if it was not for technology. However, there are some positives and negatives that come with technology. The ability to get a lot of stuff accomplished in a shorter amount of time is definitely a positive of technology.

    Technology has always had an effect on how we live our daily work lives, and sometimes this can be a good or bad thing. Technology is obviously a lot more easier and efficient than human work, but that also comes at a cost of jobs. Something great about technology is that machines can do jobs

    Technology has many impacts in our world. These impacts can be both positive and negative. Some examples of positive impacts are fast production rates in companies and improvements with the overall effectiveness of businesses.
