Dependence of mankind on small such devices which name гаджетами, is enormous. We any more do not notice, that without большей a part we do not see the existence. Them sometimes compare to drugs. In favour of this version says that circumstance, that гаджеты have groped our painful point and psychologically subordinate to itself the person. As soon as next гаджет enters into a life, the person becomes its slave. Recently the mobile phone was a rarity. Now only in Russia for a year 30 million cellular telephones is on sale. If has forgotten house phone, headlong you fly back, having spat on all delay because without a mobile phone there is no life more. In the life I saw only one person who essentially avoided a mobile phone (excepting the present president of Russia whom anybody with a mobile phone did not see). I speak about Sergey Kapitsa as whom consider as last Russian intellectual, that is it is leaving nature.
But Kapitsa used the Internet often and was able. In general, I think, the strongest dependence of the modern person - on the Internet. The more youngly the person, the more strongly dependence. Блогеры popular TV presenters influence public opinion more strongly, than. Dependence on the Internet accrues every year, though the life in virtual networks has a little the general with a reality, and many perceive the programmer as a mutant and a new version of the person.
Whether we know a name of the first pioneer гаджетов? On me so it is commissioner Zhjuv which стращал Фантомаса the third hand and a foot-machine gun. Вногу with commissioner Zhjuvom there is агент007 James Bond-it гаджеты beat on the spot. ВРоссии inventors made the way hardly, and the vodka stopper which is able to say florid toasts became top.
However, historians can be got involved in dispute. Who has told, what gadzhet - only an electronic product? We take wider! Встаринной to the Scottish ballad about a nail and a horseshoe pity trifles have led to defeat of invincible army. That is and during former epoch when there was no electricity to concern to гаджетам with небрежением it was silly.
Technologies repeatedly changed a history course. We appreciate Renaissance launch of arts, but in the base sharp lifting of consumption of energy which has been caused by universal introduction of technological novelties in the form of a collar and a horseshoe laid. These гаджеты have raised draught productivity in 3раза. Crusaders that will partially rehabilitate them in the opinion of world history became the first инноваторами which have introduced a collar and a horseshoe in practice. Not less convincing example - history of colonisation of America. Without resistance under a heel of conquistadors the ancient civilisation - the main reason has failed there was an absence at Indians of a wheel and the cultivated horses.
Even the smallest technical innovation is capable to transform our life beyond recognition. Modern launch of the Arabian nationalism and terrorism has begun with export of the western transistor radio receivers. That is contrary to known aphorism Ильфа about indifference of radio to progress it, maybe, does not provide happiness, but the misfortune can quite bring. The automobile starter has opened green street to feminism, has allowed women to get the car without the man, has provided equality, but has undermined a demographic situation and gender reference points in a society. Active workers of gay parades could lift an automobile starter over a head.
Evolution гаджетов shakes - in wildlife of such speeds is not present. By the way, many гаджеты, still recently decorating our life, die out as a kind. Ever less a watch which seemed the eternal companion of the person. There are no typewriters. Pagers have disappeared, with which bosses, as a hand bell, allocated subordinates to get them at any time. ВКрасную the book it is possible to bring a player which was listened selflessly by Daniel Bagrov in a film "Brother". The alarm clock dies. To prolong his life it is possible, only having supplied with new functions. The alarm clock which jumps on a room is thought up, being rescued from the furious owner. Last model differs a sadism: if the owner does not hurry up to occupy vertical position, the alarm clock transfers money into account welfare fund.
The predecessor айфона as regards a universal agiotage - гаджет by name of the laptop - has led to that young men go to cafe with this device, and girls fall asleep in обнимку with happy electronics. Without the laptop there are no chances to be arranged in a decent place. On interview in a staff department it is more important to take the laptop under a mouse, than correctly to fasten a tie.
Whether it is possible to glance in a well of time and to try to guess, what гаджеты will appear in our disposal in the foreseeable future? On the approach points-prompters which will distinguish images and to remind the owner through an ear-phone a name and other data on its interlocutor. Soon there will be watch which will incur function of the portable doctor, operatively and is persistent observing for state of health of the owner by means of the microtests taken about a wrist. However the main obstacle in a progress way гаджетов is, as well as in the big life, power. Progress in area зарядных devices and accumulators lags behind achievements of electronics and complicates evolution.
Nevertheless this evolution goes, its rate can be measured - on frequency of alternation of generations of the advanced samples. Айфон here already in the fifth generation. As when will be further? Who and to what the challenge in the answer will throw down? By the way, Trojan war from an apple has begun...
