Apple Is Quietly Turning Every Car On The Road Into An 'iCar' | The future of the IT industry | Scoop.it

Apple keeps adding car-friendly features to iOS. An under-reported feature of iOS 6, the latest operating system for iPhones and iPads, is something called "Siri Eyes Free." With it, you can control your iOS device without looking at it. Obviously that's very driver-friendly. Car-makers are  working to integrate Siri Hands Free as fast possible.

Cassandra Torino's curator insight, March 23, 2014 9:09 AM

This article is by, Suzanne Choney, but much of the content and information is from a Forrester analyst named, Frank Gillett. The article is about tablet devices becoming a preferred primary device by 2016.

Much of the content in this article are quotes from Frank, however, the statements within the quotes are frequently reinforced by collected data. Therefore, this article is useful to my research as it suggest the possibility of tablets becoming one of the most important devices in the future. At this stage the tablet is lightweight and performs very well, with further modifications, its possible that tablets could become better than a computer.

 

No limitations within this article that I can think of. Therefore, this article will most likely be a great reference when I write my essay.

It is surprising to read that smartphones have nearly reached full market penetration in the US. However, given the popularity if the device, the rate at which new devices are being released and the level of integration that they have with various aspects of our lives; it may be safe to say that smartphones will still be around for a while longer.

The biggest thing since the home computer: Printing in 3-D

The biggest thing since the home computer: Printing in 3-D | The future of the IT industry | Scoop.it
DUBBED the biggest thing since the home computer, 3D printing allows users to manufacture any real object from a variety of cheap, renewable materials.
Daniel Sandstrom's insight:

Mentions more positives uses for 3D printing as well as a negative side of the technology: the possibility to freely distribute weapons. While this won't be the reason that people will rush to buy a 3D printer, it is still somewhat concerning.

Cassandra Torino's curator insight, March 23, 2014 8:30 AM

In this article, Jacklyn Wagner, talks about 3D printing and its possible implications in the future. Also, Jacklyn explains the many benefits society will receive in the future when the 3D printers become more advanced and affordable.

 

This article is useful to my research as it suggest the possibility of 3D printers becoming a very important technology in the future. Although the article mentions 3D printing's possible legal issues, its still an innovative piece of technology that could help many people in need. As mentioned in the article, 3D printing could possibly produce medical supplies, prosthetic limbs and other important items to developing areas.

 

The only limitation within the information given in this article is that it does not give predicted dates in which we could see this technology become recognized as one of the most important technology on the planet. Though, despite this limitation, the article is a good source of information and would serve as a great reference within my essay.
