Google I/O Provides a Sneak Peek at a Possible Future
by Justin Hoenke
Here's the thing with the big yearly presentations from giant tech behemoths such as Google and Apple: Once you start paying attention to them, they all begin to sound the same. They always kick off with a big pitch, when the company clearly states that it wants to be your one-stop shop for everything when it comes to technology, smartphones, online identity, and more. As the presentation continues, the company shows off new devices and technologies that are sure to generate big headlines, causing people to ask some important questions about where technology is headed. These presentations are momentary glimpses into the futures that are being created by the tech companies that dominate our lives in the 21st century. It's wise for us to follow them so that we can see what's coming and how we can prepare for it.
