A couple of days ago I decided to change the theme for my blog…I tried a few templates and then I decided I should make a new template…being the graphically challenged person that I am I opened up my trusty MS paint, and got to work. The result, was, for my standards: amazing.
I kept thinking about this cycle of redefinition everyone lives. We are essentially the same, but with more experience, different body (some of us tend to get heavier, some of us try desperately to get thinner). The technology industry also works in a similar fashion. I thought of semiconductor product lines, and they do the same thing. New microprocessors are released with just a little tweak different from the previous one, then another tweak and then another, until suddenly a new core is released. Then that core gets new tweaks, and eventually a new core ends up having the same features as an old core had, but with more power, optimized peripherals (more experience), new packaging technology (different body), but it essentially does the same. It’s an LCD controller, a mobile processor, an RF IC. It just does the same thing but it’s better at it, pretty much like a person throughout his/her lifetime. Until we get obsolete and we stop adding new features and wait for the new cooler core to be released…sorry, for our children to be born…mmm…younger coworker to take our place…mmm…the possibilities seem endless…aaanyway, just a thought.
