Matthew Conditsis's insight:

This article shows that the anticipated advancements for broadband going up and cloud gaming will mean cutting down the latency times for gaming and making for a more enjoyable gaming experience. 

 

After reading this and some other similar articles on this topic I still don’t believe the next gen consoles will be the last. It is too lucrative for these companies to stop making them, And I’m sure consumers would have a bit of an uproar if they did.

In this article, Lindsay Holloway, talks about 10 technologies to watch. These 10 technologies include visualization software, robotics, HTML5, Next-gen batteries and fuel cells, 4G LTE networks, near field communication, ad serving platforms and AMOLED displays. This article is useful as it provides people with information on the technologies that are important based on IT trends. Another useful aspect of this article is that the author uses data projections to back up her arguments.

 

It is a great article full of information which is backed up by facts, therefore, I will most likely refer to it in my essay.
