Any pocket calculator in our hands today may be more capable than all the computers found before 1950, even the video games that our children are now playing, and they also have more potential than a computer that cost several million years ago.
The information media revolution is coming with wonders beyond inventory, and just as our ancestors were stunned by the cars and planes, and the radio and television were amazed at their emergence, Infomedia Revolution will turn our lives upside down.
It is no wonder, if it is said that the three greatest technical forces on the scene now: computing, communications, and the information media which, by adapting themselves together, achieve a new coalition formula among themselves known as Convergence.
That convergence yields a return of more than $30 trillion annually.
Information media, experts say, and through the new industry, which is growing at an amazing speed, will emerge as a new key weapon for competition in the 21st century.
A new generation of companies with insightful technology will emerge that in turn supports information media, for astronomical success.
Frank Kelch writes in his book " Information Media and How Our World and Life Change ?"the in\formation media revolution challenges us on a personal level , raises new ethical issues and changes the way of our daily lives.
The information age is more than twenty-five years old, so why are we talking about an era when computers only process data while we find it now processing images, video and audio media just as easily.
The information age, which began in the 1970s, coincided with the age of major computers, and today our children have greater capacity to process data in their hands.
Computers have become an integral part of our daily lives, from cash-making machines to digital computers, CD players, video games, copy machines, faxes, mobile smartphones, and even watches with our hands that are compelling computers.
Economic Enfine's engine for the new global economy will therefore be made up of the Infomedia industries of computing, communications, and consumer electronics.
These industries are the world's largest and most dynamic and growing industries with a capital of more than $3 trillion.
The Infomedia era will be the greatest breakthrough and greatest promotion in history of the world economy, outside the military sphere, and will be the engine of progress for the great commercial economic blocs of the new century.
The era The information media " Infomedia" for some people will be a treasure trove of new opportunities, number of companies have finally emerged as new warriors to counter the Infomedia era, and their profiles have already been shaped, with companies such as Microsoft, Intel l, Apple, Sega, Compagcom and businessmen such as Stephen Jobs and Bill Gates.
Major industry giants such as IBM, Amdahl, Sperry and Burroughs have found themselves in a difficult position.
In an industry where high returns are the norm, Bill Gates will not be the last billionaire of the new era, but IBM will be the first to suffer the pain of the industry's massive turmoil.
Infomedia revolution will undoubtedly cast its shadow over every project and industry, and computers and communications networks have occupied a key position in the daily operations of each project or institution, and can even be said to have become a major competitive weapon in its fight to impose its sovereignty over the market.
The time of Infomedia Revolution, it's no wonder we found wireless phones, paperless publishing, paperless books, an electronic property, home shopping, digital money, smart cards, stores without shelves and banks without cashiers.
money has not existed for the most extensive periods of history, the first human beings used bartering in their trade and sold their goods for the goods they needed and for most of the history of the human race, this barter system was the only way people could own things they could not develop or manufacture themselves. In the end, human beings realized that bartering could not meet their needs and that there must be a better way.
Therefore, our view of money has evolved as society has evolved, representing the needs and requirements of projects, businesses, banks and government that have shaped the different formulas of money, and today money is the lifeblood of all projects and the national economy.
Over time, money has taken different images and forms and used shells, hazelnuts, stones and paper as money, but there is no more strange and surprising money than money that exists at all.
Today, the vast majority of money is electronic pulses on any computer. They can be traded and converted at the speed of light.
Smart cards will soon replace credit cards that have been popular all over the world.
Smart cards have been the focus of intense attention and development for more than 25 years.
Banks are not the beneficiaries of smart cards alone, the consumer will also reap the benefits, as cards are a convenient and user-friendly alternative, say optimistic economists to deal with cash and cheques.
Smart cards can become the future cheque book where they reflect all customer's financial transactions and payments, and consumers will have the ability to manage their bonds and securities almost anytime, anywhere.
In conclusion, tools have played an important role in defining the contours of the human race, the characteristics of each era were formulated by the tools that emerged in its time, the history of the last decade of history was recorded on the computer, and the next decade would be shaped entirely by the computer.
The more information technologies, media and communications conflict, the more we realize that our world is being reformulated. These forces will work tirelessly to advance the economy, society and our private lives towards the next era: the age of Infomedia.
The information media revolution "Infomedia" is already knocking on our doors, leaving us with only options that share one difficulty: the outlook.
