This Week in Technology

Technology changes faster and faster. Ever hear of Moore’s law? Essentially he suggested that every year the amount of transistors would double. He’s been right. Think of it. A mere 8 years ago we didn’t have iPhones. My cell phone can do pretty much anything my laptop can do. Innovation leads Computer Science and we are only bounded by ideas. The concept of thinking outside the box is history. Instead of being outside, CS has crushed the box and rebuilt it.

Each week you will be hearing from a few of your classmates about the latest and coolest stuff in technology.

Your goal is to prepare a 15-20 minute presentation on THREE topics that were important in the recent weeks of technology. The topics must focus on the technology. For instance, I am writing this a few days before Apple hosts an event. Rumors are a buzz between new iPhones, new Apple Watches and perhaps a new Apple TV. Talk about those rumors. What do they mean for consumers? Is this innovation or just fluff? Present on the facts, lead a discussion. Your other current technology event may or may not relate to your first story.

In the event that two of your classmates are presenting on the same topic, I will only give credit to the first presenter. To help you NOT choose the same topics, it is entirely on you to coordinate with the person presenting on the same day. 

To help you guide this adventure, you will be responsible for signing up and reviewing the project description.
