Outdated Technology

  1. 1. Outdated Features In The Technology World & Things to get rid of and what to keep around if possible
  2. 2. Things to Keep As we move deeper into the digital age, many of the little things we once knew and cherished are becoming obsolete. There’s next to nothing you can’t do with an iPhone, and uses for board games and nice watches and printed photos will soon become a thing of the past, if they aren’t already. These are the things we should always keep in our lives, no matter how old fashioned they will eventually become. 2
  3. 3. Printed Photos ● Because scrolling through a feed just isn’t the same as flipping through an album, and everyone should have some beautiful picture frames in their home. It’s great to have digital backups, but the printed photo is something that should never become obsolete. 3
  4. 4. Non-Digital Games ● Cards, Chase, Ludo, Ayo games all these can be or have been digitally altered or defiled but in most cases people still prefer the physical performance of each other during the period of the games and challenges. This can be done online but this is with people you see, feel, touch and talk to. 4
  5. 5. Journals, Sticky notes and Letters ● I know simple things like these are easily digitized, but having someone take the time to write to you just seems so much more thoughtful. Also, I never remember to look at the list of things I need while shopping if not written on a piece of paper in front of my face. ● People tends to still attach much validity and authenticity to letters, for official purposes, business,political and other areas concern. 5
  6. 6. Bells,Watches, Clock and Hard Copy Map ● We don’t have to integrate every second of the day with technology. Don’t be the person who’s stranded and screwed when your phone gives out. Probably, you need something to fall back to. 6
  7. 7. Things to get rid of if possible. ● As America switches to a digital signal, many are throwing out their old television sets. The switch to the digital television signal makes old analog televisions obsolete. For the last 70 plus years people have watched television on analog. 7
  8. 8. Tin Foil & TV Antenna ● If you don’t have cable or satellite TV, you’ll recognize the rabbit ear antenna. As you switched between channels, you have to move each arm of the antenna back and forth, up and down to get the best reception. If it the picture is still fuzzy, to extend your reach you can wrap tin foil on the ends of both antenna arms in hopes of boosting the signal and getting a clear picture. 8
  9. 9. Spindle & Spider (Turntable Player) ● The red disc is call a “Spider” and was inserted into the middle of a 45 record so it could be played on a turntable. The spindle was used to stack a few records at a time so as one record finished playing, the arm with the record needle would retract and cause the spindle to drop the next record. 9
  10. 10. White Out & Typewriter Ball ● If you ever had to type a paper on a typewriter, not a computer, you always had a bottle of White Out handy. If you made a mistake, you painted over it with White Out, blew on it to dry it, and then typed over your mistake. 10
  11. 11. Pencil & Cassette ● Say you’re rocking out to the latest cassette tape or the Talking Head when suddenly your Walkman malfunctions and tape starts spitting out into giant pile on the floor. Throw away the tape? Never. Simply grab a trusty No. 2 pencil, insert it into a cassette hole and twist to pull the tape safely back into the cassette. Can you imagine such a primitive method/technology? 11
  12. 12. Looking into the Website features to be avoided ● We've all been there — yelling at a computer screen or particular website because the antiquated design prevents you from getting where you want to go and it can cost you potential clients or customers. ● Website features small businesses should avoid (or get rid of) at all costs. 12
  13. 13. Irrelevant Elements ● Many sites uses too many elements that bring no real value to the audience. There are too many crowded designs and too much text on one page. Too many icons and photos. Sidebars, Automated Popups, Autoplay Videos etc. 13
  14. 14. Flash Intros & Stock Photos ● Flash intros are annoying for the customer, take too long to load mostly when there's slow internet connections. ● Authenticity and personality are more important now than ever. Customers want to interact with brands they trust and want to learn about the people behind the company. Try taking photos of your team or customers. 14
  15. 15. Reloading Pages ● Web 2.0 is nearly 10 years old by now, we still see that most sites require the user to reload full pages at a time to navigate the site. With AJAX or Javascript/XMLHttpRequest, it is not necessary to reload entire pages. Instead, only the portion of the page changing will reload. This makes navigation much quicker, and the site responds much more quickly. 15
  16. 16. Questions Can most of the features mentioned in this presentation be completely gotten rid of in time? or many will never do without them? 16
