As text messaging reached the big 20 this month, we wonder where the technologies of today will take us in 20 years' time?
Will we still be posting our updates to facebook, and tweeting, and connecting on linked in? Will we still use email? Will we work in the same room as our colleagues, or will be part of a truly global team? These are big questions and you'd have to be brave to guess where our technology will take us.
One thing is always true, technology should make our lives more simple to manage, it should enhance our lives and our work. In fact it could perhaps one day do our work for us - check out Stephen Fry's gadget man from season 1 episode 3... Could we really send a robotic version of ourselves to do our daily work? While that may be out of the realms of many of our imaginations, video, connectivity and the accessibility of our own personal devices means that we are now more connected than ever before.
Making technology work for business and ensuring that your business will stay ahead of the game is the challenge. There's such an explosion of technology to choose from, and understanding how it all works, with each other and existing platforms is a minefield. Often it's the knowledge of how to make a new technology work for a business that is the biggest stumbling block.
But that's where the experts can help. Our team at Solweb understands the nuances of different businesses - we've worked with hundreds of different businesses and models since we were established 12 years ago. While we may not be as long in the tooth as the text message, between us we have over 50 years experience in the technology industry and a mix of knowledge to understand what works and what doesn't.
So if you are looking to future proof your business, adapt to reach global markets, or just get different parts of your business to work together we can find or create the solution to suit you.
We won't be able to build you a life-sized model of yourself in time for Christmas though...
