6 days ago
The future of mobile, TV, self-driving cars and the iPhone What will the future look like for mobile, TV, self-driving cars and the iPhone? In the show, we will hear from two experts on tech scene in Canada and also a clip from Steve Jobs on the introduction of the iPhone a decade ago. Mobile, machine-learning and self-driving cars For the past 16 years, management services firm Deloitte Canada has released its Technology, Media and Telecommunications predictions that Deloitte believes will impact various industries and people’s daily lives. Duncan Stewart, director of TMT research for Deloitte Canada, presented his company’s take on several emerging technologies and trends during a recent conference in Toronto. In an interview with WRLWND Radio, Duncan elaborates on three key tech trends; 5G mobile technology, machine-learning, and automatic emergency brake systems. Listen, as Duncan explains what impact these three will have in our daily lives and why it’s important for businesses to keep a close watch on them. The iPhone, a look at the past and future This week, 10 years ago, Steve Jobs announced to the world, the iPhone. It’s hard to believe that it has been a decade since the iPhone was introduced. The iPhone has changed the way we live, dramatically over the last 10 year. A quote that really inspired Steve Jobs to be the driving force behind the iPhone, is by Alan Kay, an American computer scientist, who said, “People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.” And that, is what Steve Jobs did. He worked really hard to bring us perfection. An example of this was just before the first iPhone was announced, there were two prototypes of the Acorn operating system that were being considered. One was like the iPod interface that was controlled with a click wheel, the other was an icon interface. It would have made sense to go with the click wheel-based UI at that time due to the success of the iPod, but Steve Jobs decided he wanted the iPhone to have an entirely touchscreen-based interface and threatened to kick everyone else off the iPhone project if they disagreed.
