Communication in 2023
What will the communication technology landscape look like in 2023 A.D.?
Before we look to the future of technology, we must examine the past.
1983: Apple Lisa
The first commercial computer with a graphical user interface (GUI) — the advance that would finally make computers usable by people with no special training. The name was the acronym for “Local Integrated Software Architecture” and possibly the daughter of someone on the development team (Steve Jobs). The computer was $10,000 and only sold 10,000 of them.
1993: Polaroid, Powerbook and pagers
JVC Video Camcorder, Apple PowerBook 160, Polaroid OneStep, Sony Sports Walkman cassette player and a pager.
2003: The iTunes Music Store was launched.
At the time, “For every 99 cents Apple gets from your credit card, 65 cents goes straight to the music label. Another quarter or so gets eaten up by distribution costs. At most, Jobs is left with a dime per track, so even $500 million in annual sales would add up to a paltry $50 million profit. Why even bother? "Because we're selling iPods," Jobs says, grinning.”
