In 1940s we knew something called computer science that has changed our lives introducing useful devices and tools.
They are in our lives all the time and we cannot live without them, we feel just like empty.
At the beginning…
a computer was really expensive and in particular really space wasting so they cannot be bought from common people.
Then came first personal computers, such as the popular Commodore 64, that changed everything: cheap, and easy to use. It had all the specs needed to get successful, in fact he did.
This was just the beginning of a great revolution, that would be spread from that moment.
If we think about how technology has changed our lives, we can consider to name all this, as the Third Industrial revolution.
What’s new with it and how does it work?
IT (information technology) introduced new tools and devices which were unbelievable just some years before, but it was just the beginning.
All the modern technology and electronics component are built up using silicium, an element with the perfect specs for its applies.
Time passing by, man discovered new ways to work on silicium and decade after decade men built smaller and better micro chips and devices.
If you think a second, you can notice that technology changed drastically in last 30 years just because man could improve the silicium-made components. Till now.
Before we had mainframes, room-big computers, now we have smartphones and smartwatches gadgets which are made with smaller chips than before, way smaller.
Gordon Moore, worked for Intel in late 1990s, and he became aware that year after year the number of transistors inside a chip was increasing, in particular, the number of transistors in a chip double every two years, approximately.
Companies, just like Intel, AMD used this law, just like a target to reach and overcome. Of course, now in 2017 things got harder.
Actually, with latest devices we have 10nm process, I mean that transistors inside chips are separated from a 10nm “distance”, and we almost got to a physical limit.
So, what will be next? Which will be the solutions?
At the moment the only element similiar to silicium is graphene, but it isn’t as available as the former is. In future will see a lot of interesting stuff happening.
Tech improved our lives, making some hard tasks easier than before, helping us to not waste time but sometimes, tech brought some dependencies.
Video games, social networks, all this stuff if not controlled can became just like drugs.
If you are a parent, be careful to your children!

Tech can be dangerous sometimes, if we think to hackers, or even to some known companies such as CIA, and we could talk a lot about it, in fact I suggest you to take a look to the latest scoop, where CIA has been discovered hacking using complex tools, revealed from WikiLeaks.

The problem is that still nowadays, people don’t even know how their smartphones, that they use everyday, work. This is one of the big problems: disinformation.
People think that still now, in 2017, IT is just noob stuff and nothing more, but they don’t realise that we are living in a life where technology is everywhere and if you don’t know how it works, you can be eaten from it.
Tech, IT is not just hacking, is not just gaming, is much more.
Have you ever thought about how much work there is in your common smartphone? Have you ever thought how much work there is even in some stupid apps?
Without technology, all of us will live just like we were in the pre-history. No PC, no smartphones, no TV, no dishwasher, no fridge… you would never read this post too.
Development, is slowing down compared to last decades, and we analysed the reason why it’s happening.
Now we have just to wait and see which strategies will be applied to go beyond the current limits.
