TECHNOLOGY PRODUCTS THAT WILL
DISAPPEAR IN THE NEXT FIVE
With the speed of innovation in the tech
industry, we can’t know every piece of
technology that will fill our everyday lives in
five years, but we can predict what won't
last. As smartphones begin to render low-end
cameras obsolete and Netflix continues
to upend the DVD and Blu-ray market, it’s
clear the technology landscape will look
dramatically different in the near future.
Five Technology Products That
Will Disappear in the Next Five
#1. BLUE RAY PLAYERS.
#2. LOW END DIGITAL CAMERAS.
#3. CAR KEYS.
#5. DIAL-UP INTERNET.
Blue Ray : Ray players have been
threatened to see less use as video
streaming has become easy and
accessible thru Netflix, ITune movies,
and other movie providers. More
people are renting on line from video
provider streaming to their TVs or
computers. The Blu-ray players will
see less use and sales will decline.
The advent of Android smart phones
with higher quality built in cameras
and the picture quality of the iPhone
4 have more users opting to use their
phone rather than cameras to
capture memories. This has
prompted Cannon and Nikon aiming
to reduce the manufacture of low
end cameras and focusing on the
mid and high end markets.
Many of the newer model cars come equip with
smart keys, key-less entry and push button start.
We also have drive profiles and remote starters
made available through our smart phones. These
phones have applications that allow the user to
start their cars remotely. The smart phone
application market like On Star Remote Link may
well be the energy that starts our cars in the
future. This does not prevent people from locking
themselves out of their cars when they leave the
car with the engine running and close the door.
The end of car keys is imminent in five years.
GPS: Stand alone GPS systems as we have
known them in the past will move into history
as the newer of cars models come with built in
systems. The productions and sale of these
gadgets have been steadily declining since the
advent of Android and smart phones which
come with mapping software. Boating and out
door activities may still continue to use these
stand alone devices. As battery capacity
improves the need for portable GPS devices will
Many areas in the country are still on dial-up
but that will change in the next 5 years,
thanks to the Federal Connect Fund that has
a goal of bringing internet service of some
kind through cable, and satellite to the 7
percent to Americans who are still without
service, . This means that dial-up internet
will disappear in five years
