2015 revealed these top trends in tech. They, in turn, revealed something about us.
Our world is becoming increasingly digital. The United States, in particular, relies more and more on tech to get us through the day. Whether you’re digitizing your business processes or scrolling your Facebook feed on your phone, you interact with technology on a very regular basis. You’re not alone. Here are the top technology trends of 2015 in the United States, and what they mean for our increasingly digital society.
- Make Mine Mobile. Computers started out taking up entire buildings. Now we’ve got processing power in our pockets. It’s not surprising, then, that more and more people are giving up their desktop computers for smaller, more portable devices. Mobile usage skyrocketed in 2015, which means we can anticipate technology being essentially everywhere we go in the coming year.
- Tap that Tablet. Similarly, tablets grew in popularity last year. Tablets give people the power of a computer in a less bulky – and often less expensive – form. As more and more people are cable cutting, working remotely, and integrating apps in their every day lives, the computer-made-mobile tablet will only get more usage. Increase tablet usage shows we value convenience, and expect our tech to work for us.
- In with Information. The advent of the internet has made information more accessible than every before, and people are loving it. Not only do we have more information available, people are also becoming increasingly willing to share information about themselves (e.g. checking in at physical locations, using non-private social media profiles). In 2015 we learned that we want information, and we’re willing to give it to get it.
