A Stargate? Thats a bit much really... Kurt Russell fan?
I recently bought and computer! Piece by piece i researched it to find the best deal\specs for my budget! now a year later i find that all the
hardware i bought is almost obsolete! i have an AMD 64 3200+ processor and i have recently read that there are dual core processors available now for
the same price a year later! In the pipeline (3-5 years) there will be computers with up to forty mini processors running at the same time!
This seems to me a perfect business model of
Indroduction - Increase - Saturation - Decline
As soon as the product reaches saturation they release a new better one! They have made it so that we have to consume at the first two levels of the
business model for the most expensive prices and then when in decline they have nothing more to do with it! (eg. no guarantee\warranty) Leaving us
to our eBay and such like to pawn off our second hand tat with major depreciation in price and quality usually in favor of one of their new
I am speaking fro experience on technological matters and have seen the value of my electronic equiptment (of which i have quite a lot) decline
rapidly. Almost to the point where they are obsolete. Now I am not talking about an IBM 486 processor from 1989, Im talking about laptops, MP3
players, DVD drives and so on.
The new windows vista will leave everyone standing when they announce that no new software will be compatible with Windows 98\ME\2K\ or XP. Imagine
NO NEW SOFTWARE WILL BE COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS XP!!!! Insane
They have the technology but do not want to release it before people have "saturated" themselves with their more inferior designs.
Nokia 3210 in 1995 508 Euros (400 Irish Pounds but the rest of the currency will translate to euro)
Nokia 3210 in 2006 35 Euros if you are lucky
Sharp J-SHO4 (first camera phone in 2000) 110,000-pixel CMOS 675 Euros
Today just 6 short years later Samsung are announcing their first ever 10 megapixel camera phone
check this website about probable "leaks" in
"APPARENTLY samsung is not even thinking of releasing such phone wasting money for that 9 megapixel when theres a samsung 10 megapixel phone already
Just these few examples from what i know should suggest to people that there is a stalling of our technological evolution, and if they are coy enough
to make a few bucks on it and keep a few mobile phones from us whats to say that they are not keeping other technolgical advances from us aswell. The
technology to vastly advance medical science, genome\stem cell scientific research, inexhaustable fuel sources? And the things they never want us to
know about... Star Wars anyone? Reagan let it all slip there! They are holding back the human race and human evolution for their own selfish material
Other foods for thought, Lasers in the fifties, Zero-point energy, Blu-ray DVD's, Wirelass Internet and any of Nikolai Teslas ingenius
I have used the prefix they, but unfortunaltely i do not know who THEY are. I wish i did. anyone that can throw light on my comments, it will be
welcomed. I am doing my own research also and will post later
