TECHNOLOGY AND PEOPLE

| No Comments
New technology can be somewhat overwhelming.  In our lifetime many of us have gone from living with a Black and White TV that only has 3 or 4 channels, listening to the hometown AM radio station to get all of your local information, to becoming excited by the invention of the cassette tape.

Now with YouTube, Internet Radio, and Google, you don't have to move from your computer screen to get any information you could ever need on anything or anybody.

With all of this new technology and innovation comes great excitement and interest.  These new products have changed the way we live and communicate not only with our friends and family, but with our world. On the other hand, how many new high tech devices do you own where 75 percent of the gadgets that have been added to upgrade the product aren't even used?
Don't get me wrong, I like the new technology and what it is doing to improve our world, but there has to be a better way to explain and engage people on how to use these new tools and products to their fullest extent.
 
Yes, people and companies produce new products to make money, that's a reality of this world. But true visionary companies and executives understand that the real way to get "paid" is to create products we can't live without, a product that will enhance our life, making it easier.
 
It seems to me that as technology advances, it should be easier to use.  However I keep hearing people talk about all these modern and very hip gadgets they own, but they don't use most of the functions.  Why?  Many cannot tell you the reason.
 
I bet the next big wave of hot technology entrepreneurs will be individuals or groups who are able to harness and provide user friendly products and content to the masses.  People want functional, simple, and affordable stuff in their lives.  More bells and whistle are fine and dandy, but if it rings and sings and you cannot get it to work, do you really want it or need it?
 
In there future this will be a key question that the innovators and producers of technology will face.

MORE TECHNOLOGY, MORE PROTECTION

| No Comments
Consumers must and have to be careful not to get "caught up" in illegally copying video and audio files.  Most people have no intention of breaking any laws, but the creation of new technology brings new consumer responsibilities and issues.

The cold-blooded reality of our absolutely breathtaking technological revolution means that the laws and rules of how it is handled change just as rapidly.  Clearly the playing field has changed, but not the basic tenants of what is right or wrong.

The need to protect copyrighted material is of the utmost importance to both the consumer and creators of content.
What is copyright?  Well, the "Merriam-Webster Dictionary" definition states that it is "the exclusive legal right to reproduce, publish, sell, or distribute the matter and form of something (as a literary, musical, or artistic work)".

Consumers must be very careful not to cross the line, and owners of this new technology must continue to educate folks on the proper ways to use these products.  You have to be sure as a consumer that when downloading music or videos, it is legitimately and legally available for your personal use.

Most consumers are not downloading copyrighted material for the purpose of creating bootleg copies for mass distribution. However, the creation and innovation of our modern technology has made it much easier for those who would to do so.  And that is the fine line that both the consumers and the copyright holders need to balance.

Consumers must continue to be aware and vigilant about what they can and cannot download from the internet.  They have to make sure their computers and accessories are both equipped to handle and manage these issues.

Many of the large internet providers have begun exploring how to create a more secure internet for copyrighted content.  So the push has begun to give greater protection to copyright holders.

The copyright holders and content providers must also continue to educate the public about the negative effects of illegal downloading on both the creators and the providers.  Yes it is about money, but it is also about the long-term effect on our creative community.  These issues of copyright protection affect not only our artists, but our scientists too.

Everyone wants to be paid for their hard work and efforts.  In these tough economic times where many people are working harder and making less, would you be upset if someone decided, without your knowledge, to claim the time you worked as their own?  Think about it . . . your hard work and money being claimed by someone who had absolutely nothing to do with you or your efforts.

If you were a copyright holder, these are the thoughts and fights you would live with everyday.  What would you do to protect your rights and your livelihood?
