Bye-bye to ‘old school’ methods

January 10, 2011

It’s time for everyone to wave bye-bye to some ‘old school’ methods of communicating, and embrace new technology.  Today’s generation and those to come will not use some of the conveniences we all grew up on.

Starting this new century, we can say good-bye to…

  • Video tapes
  • Watches
  • Dial-up Internet
  • Wired phones
  • Book stores
  • Newspaper classified-ads
  • Fax machines

These were just a few items mentioned in the article I ran across and found interesting.  The article is titled Things Babies Born in 2011 Will Never Know by Stacy Johnson.

This article caught my eye for two reason’s – first because I have a newborn, just born at the end of 2010, but my youngest son will likely not use or even know of some of these items except from history books.  Secondly, this article stood out to me because technology has become some a vital part of our every day lives that it is continually changing the way we communicate.  Which in-turn changes the way we as businesses market to customers.  It is imperative for businesses today to adapt to these changes because consumers are – and we’ve got to be where they are!
