Doing a little research for my thesis today, and came across this quote from Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen in their book The New Digital Age and thought I’d share:
“Eventually, the accoutrements of technologies we marvel at today will be sold in flea markets as antiques, like rotary phones before them.”
I thought that was such an interesting thought, think about buying an iPhone 6 at the flea market like we would buy a record player or a typewriter today. It is kind of funny to think about how different technology today looks… I feel like the old stuff has much more character. I wonder if people will think that about our “modern technology.”
Do you really think someone would want to put an iPhone in their space as a decorative piece or conversation starter?
