Apple has proven time and time again that they are the king of technology. Although this photo was not intentionally derived from the creative minds at Apple inc., this image has become an internet sensation. It portrays a large classroom in a university that is using mostly Macbook computers instead of any other brand. Has Apple done such a good job at marketing toward college students that they’ve taken over the whole population of twenty-somethings?
It sure seems like it. Considering these computers run much more expensive than the other lap top brands, the Macbook and Macbook pro seems to dominate in the normal classroom.
This seems true for Southeastern University as well. In many of our classrooms, Apple products are everywhere. We seem to fit this trend of purchasing the brand not just for technology, but for the sake of “fitting in”. Does the future of technology look like this? It appears so. Whatever Apple comes up with next is what the younger generations will eat up.
What will succeed Apple’s products? Functional displacement is a very real and serious threat to any new technology, let alone corporation. It will be interesting to see what the next 10 years looks like as far as technology is concerned.
