Six years ago, Saturday mornings on the sofa looked different
This morning as I was was doing my current Saturday morning deal, which is great, fresh ground coffee from @CommonPlace in Pittsburgh, PA, some reading material and a 3.5 lbs. Yorkie (Phoebi) in my lap, it occurred to me how different this looked form just a few years back.
New era: Coffee, Mac PowerBook running for @Twitter feed and LinkedIn perusing, iPhone down loading a book to listen to on an upcoming trip, a hard-copy, yes paper, book I am reading, ... Think @MitchJoel, @BreneBrown, @JonathanFields or maybe @Nilofer, the iPad handy for looking up words that true genius writers use to stretch my gray matter & an old school hand written journal for thought keeping ... And yes, Phoebi.
I guess after reading Mr. Colony's quote, that/This time has arrived. As an example of this, according to #Apple, the company sold more iPads in April through June of 2012 than any other computer manufacturer sold of their entire product line. In support of this fact, Gartner, Inc., @Gartner_Inc, reported that app downloads will increase more than 600% between 2012 & 2016.
Why is all of this important? I think it is important & very relevant as it pertains to the economy. More of this type growth and the proliferation of data & data issuing and consuming devices will help drive us to a more robust economy. Think of it in terms of a small business owner like AirTight. As more and more people come on line, in a mobile way, we will, as a nation, state, city, and company be impacted in a positive way. Business develop things, hardware, software and #DataCenters and #CoLo environments to support all of this mobility in a digital sense. So those people and companies do well, it even trickles all the way down to our size company, as we specialize in removing heat from data centers & colos.
So no real earth-shattering facts here, just a realization that we as a people have changed, we tend to be embracing technology at an incredible rate and this is how we are going down the road.
Enjoy technology and your own way of using it.
