So i’m currently writing up an essay of my choice- and tumblr’s helping me along with the procrastination process.
However, on the topic of my essay “Is the Disk Drive Being Superseded?”
I hand this over to anyone it might interest.
my conclusions have been that no-one uses disc much anymore
everyone downloads music, films, apps even full software such as logic and aperture etc off app stores.
if we want to watch a film/ tv program we just stream it via the internet- be it lovefilm, netflix or on demand “i-player” type sites.
Everything’s going cloud based whether people like it or not- infact those who think they’re not using it- think again.
Your emails with gmail- stored on a server, you are using a cloud based solution.
flickr- cloud based solution
facebook photos- cloud based solution.
TUMBLR- cloud based solution-
If anyone thinks they can get away without using it you’re wrong, unless you don’t use the internet for anything other than browsing and never use social media platforms.
Hit me up with any ideas/concepts if it’s got you thinking about the future a little!
