Digital Dark Ages: Bring Out Your Dead...Data

Google boss warns of 'forgotten century' with email and photos at risk

Vint Cerf: ‘We are nonchalantly throwing all of our data into what could become an information black hole.’

When I read the headlines on this announcement I immediately thought 'sensationalism'. Living in a time where every scrap of information is available with a few keystrokes I had forgotten that only a few short decades ago Encyclopedia Britannica was king of knowledge. But upon reading Vint Cerf's arguments I am inclined to agree with him and ignore the sensationalist perspective. As a web designer, computer scientist, and all around geek I can't tell you how many pictures, how much web content, how many programs I have simply erased because I needed the space or simply didn't want it anymore. But according to Vint Cerf, one of the founding fathers of the Internet and Google VP, that attitude could be catastrophic.

Microsoft Hololens is the Future, Now!

One of the biggest reveals of the new Windows 10 operating system is Hololens. More than just Virtual Reality, this system integrates Augmented Reality features into your living spaces, projecting holograms on surfaces in real-time. This is an all in one unit you wear that replaces your desktop, laptop, tablet, etc. 

Now I know, technically these aren't "holograms" in the traditional, HUD free display space but it is a step closer. And it is game changing. Watch the video and see for yourself...
