Voice of America – “A Whole New World, Brought to Us by Gizmos and Gadgets”

“If I were looking at technology that has really impacted us over the last ten years, I would go in order: mobile computing, the proliferation of digital media content, broadband — mobile and at-home access — social media platforms and user-generated content, cloud computing, digital photography and GPS. What I mean by GPS is GPS for the masses, although global positioning systems have been around for quite a while. All of these things have worked together to revolutionize technology … and the technology is constantly changing, faster than at any other time in history.”

Professor Bruce Bachenheimer, Director of Entrepreneurship, discusses the top 10 technology developments of the 21st century … and a look at what’s on tap for 2011.

The Voice of America (VOA) is an international news service, supported by the U.S. Government, that serves more than 1,200 affiliate radio and television stations overseas.
