How Disruptive Technology Will Affect Us?
#1
A disruptive technology is one that displaces an established technology and shakes up the industry or a ground-breaking product that creates a completely new industry. 

Here are a few examples of disruptive technologies:
  • The personal computer (PC) displaced the typewriter and forever changed the way we work and communicate.
  • The Windows operating system's combination of affordability and a user-friendly interface was instrumental in the rapid development of the personal computing industry in the 1990s. Personal computing disrupted the television industry, as well as a great number of other activities.
  • Email transformed the way we communicating, largely displacing letter-writing and disrupting the postal and greeting card industries.
  • Cell phones made it possible for people to call us anywhere and disrupted the telecom industry.
  • The laptop computer and mobile computing made a mobile workforce possible and made it possible for people to connect to corporate networks and collaborate from anywhere. In many organizations, laptops replaced desktops.
  • Smartphones largely replaced cell phones and PDAs and, because of the available apps, also disrupted: pocket cameras, MP3 players, calculators and GPS devices, among many other possibilities. For some mobile users, smartphones often replace laptops. Others prefer a tablet.
  • Cloud computing has been a hugely disruptive technology in the business world, displacing many resources that would conventionally have been located in-house or provided as a traditionally hosted service.
  • Social networking has had a major impact on the way we communicate and -- especially for personal use -- disrupting telephone, email, instant messaging and event planning.
In Singapore, our GDP is contributed from largest to lowest by manufacturing, wholesale and retail trade, business services, finance and insurance, transportation and storage, construction.

Out of 6, retail, business, finance and transportation has already been affected by disruptive technology. Money is flowing outward to other countries where their people own the proprietary system. We have none and we should start to be worried.

I find mobile devices are the most disruptive technology, it almost take over the human race. We used to worry about key and wallet when we leave home. Now homes are equipped with biometric lock and we can pay for our transport and meals using mobile phone.

Anything to do with SMART are just making us dumber. Our intelligence slowly fade to make our devices smarter.
