The Big Improvement in Tech Needs in 2024
The message from the major companies has always been, “Get ready for the future!” But in reality, there are many aspects of technology that have remained broken for many years. For example, the “green vs. blue bubble” problem in text messaging, creating a better messaging system, the potential dangers presented by new technologies, are all issues that need to be addressed.
Although the previous year offered some significant improvements, such as a common charging cable and better foldable smartphones, there is still much ground to cover in 2024. Text messaging, specifically the issue with the “green bubble,” has created a major sociological divide. Apple has plans to adopt rich communication services for text messaging, but whether this will end the “bubble war” remains uncertain.
Self-driving car technologies are also raising concerns after a tragic accident involving a Cruise vehicle in San Francisco. The hope is that 2024 will be a better year for autonomous driving technologies, with companies like Waymo continuing to test their services with less controversy.
Even the premise of cryptocurrency has been facing skepticism from the start, with significant risks and limited use cases. The previous year also brought notable improvements in eSIM technology, allowing for easier activation and cheaper services, potentially saving thousands of dollars in wireless service costs.
Looking ahead, it is clear that there is still much room for improvement in various aspects of technology in 2024. Text messaging issues, advancing self-driving car technologies, and addressing potential risks in cryptocurrency are all significant challenges to overcome. However, with the advancements made in charging cables, foldable smartphone technologies, and eSIM services, there is hope for further progress in the coming year.
