Hi everyone, this may be a stupid thread, but since this is a discussion forum i just wanted to share this with you guys/gals. If it's not ok to start this thread here please warn me. English is not my native language so i hope i can describe what i want to say in this long post. Please bare with me. We all know that the Mayan calendar ends at 2012 right? This end is perceived as the end of the world, we all know that too. (not that i believe at it) I've heard somewhere that mayan calendar is in the form of a pyramid, and that pyramid has levels and every level represents a time range and obviously since lower levels are wider, their time range is higher. (so for example lowest level is 10 million years B.C. to 4 million years B.C. and the highest and narrowest level is 2000-2012) And it's said that the higher the level is in the pyramid, technological advances of humanity are faster between that ages. So when you think of it, humanity didn't advance that much between millions of years ago to let's say the year 1000 or something but in the last couple hundred years, we come from no electricity to cars and cell phones etc... Let alone the last couple hundred years, in the last 20 years we've come from huge corded phones to cell phones that can do everything and work everywhere and that are widely available everywhere. When you think of it, the pyramid is right. So when that pyramid ends in 2012, it's said that technological advancements will become A LOT slower. Do you agree with that? iPhones' advancements has obviously became slower, that's why everyone is complaining so much about iPhone 5. Well, forget about the mayan calendar. Every major revolution is made upon something huge and big. Electricity was a big thing, we've made millions of inventions on it, petrol engines was a big thing, computing, processing data was a huge thing and lastly, internet and mobility was a huge thing. iPhone was founded upon internet and mobility. I personally think we shouldn't expect that much of a revolutions from new iPhones (or all Apple devices, or technological devices) but evolutions, small steps of evolutions. Not because the mayan calendar says so but because we need the next huge thing. Even with the first iPhone there was a lot that could be added, we were saying if we could process faster, if we had faster internet, we could multitask, game, program, video chat etc... Now we have all of it. I honestly don't know where it can go. I don't want to sound like Charles Holland Duell who said in 1899: "Everything that can be invented, has been invented." (and he was the commissioner of the United States Patent and Trademark office) I personally don't say oh i wish the internet/processor was faster so i could do this. Well, most definitely i am being stupid and vastly visionless, we'll see huge revolutions for the years to come, but i just wanted to share this with you people. Hope you've read it. TL;DR -Where does iPhones, phones go from here? -What will be the next big thing technology can advance on to change people's lives? -Where do we go from here?
