In this post we are going to discuss about the changes to latest technology & tools. Every year new technologies are making our life exciting & also challenging to adapt with.

Main purpose of this post to focus on, is it wise to make myself updated with the latest technology to implement using latest tools?

let’s get clarified. First let’s take a look on Technology definition from Wikipedia.

Technology: Technology is the collection of techniques, skills, methods, and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. -Wikipedia

Tools: A tool is any physical item that can be used to achieve a goal. –Wikipedia.

Simply the knowledge of constructing, obtaining and using tools is technology. We can also say that, Technology is the development and use of basic tools.

Day by day technologies are updating as well as the tools are also updating to implement those thought, thus we can achieve our desired goal.

Changes of Technologies: Choosing the right tool in the right time to implement the latest technology is important. There is no option to blame the technology or tools if you are unable to use them. It’s your fault that you are unable to make yourself updated with the time.


If we draw an example of Nokia the giant mobile manufacturer gone down due to

  • Slow response at latest trends as apple touch screen smartphone launched,
  • Old software development model.
  • Symbian OS

It was too late for Nokia to come back & sold itself to Microsoft.

Nokia Old Phone, main purposed to make a phone call.

Nokia Latest Smartphone, main purposed to improve user experience with attractive new features including make a phone call.

Notice that the basic thing are same to make a phone call but the updated technology make the real difference here. Everybody knows the business of a phone call, over the year the business process is same but the technology is changed, new features added for better user experiences.


There were 170,000 people working in KODAK companies and 85% of the world’s photo papers used to make this company. Now Kodak companies have become bankrupt due to digital photography!

Conclusion: You may have lot’s of example in real-time who has disappear from market due to lazy thought. Changes is life, stay up to date by updating yourself with the latest trends. Think about how to get best out of latest changes. If you are an IT person learn new tools to implement new technologies & develop application for latest platform.
