dolaresHey, calm down. We're not making an auction. Not least because it would be completely different to an auction in a site that has as goal to inform and teach your users, It's not even? Well, Let's do this Tip in General Special, created so we can remember a few moments of our financial life related to Technology and Informatics.

We have discussed several themes here, related technology and Informatics, but always something more specific, persnickety and technical. Because this time let's talk a little bit more for the user side, consumer. Follow.

hyper threadingTechnological developments

You all are already bald of knowing: “technology advances every day more”, and my goal isn't to talk more about it, just complement the content that will come forward with some statements.

Technology advances every day more (Jeez!), bringing the real world effects and dynamic creations, interactive and creative. But in addition a series of other factors are renewed, among them:

  • New materials are used;
  • The software is upgraded and offer more features;
  • The hardware becomes increasingly interactive and enhanced;
  • The price changes…

The price changes? As? Why?

Yes, the price changes. As manufacturers seek new capabilities to manufacture a product in several factors are favorable – or not – to change the final value of the product. For example, If a manufacturer begins to use a material 5% cheaper to manufacture a product, certainly at the end the value will fall a little more.

Another factor that influences (and very) the movement of prices is the competition. The greater the availability of similar products, most shopkeepers will lower their prices manufacturers, in order to attain that target audience.

Now you understand the title of this matter. Read the contents below.

We are not criticizing the technology, on the contrary, just showing that evolution is beneficial in every way. Saw how equipment that used a few years ago were expensive and did not have as many features as we see today?

Particularly, I believe that in a few years what we use today will be “trash”. And you, identified himself with any above device? Comment!
