2012-The Year of the Techie

 2012 has definitely been the year of the techie. Every single year, new advancements have been made in the field of technology that have changed our lives, or in some cases, helped us to find even more ways to waste our time! Here are some of the latest tech trends that if you aren’t using yet, you will be.

1. Television shows can be watched anywhere and everywhere.
With more and more people opting to watch their favorite television shows from online services, on their mobile phones or on their tablets, cable companies are scrambling to ensure that they don’t get lost in the shuffle. Most now allow users who already have a subscription for home television service to watch whatever they want online for free as well. This means that as long as you pay for television at home, you can whip out your iPhone and watch shows there without having to pay.

2. Paying with your phone. 
Not all phones are able to do this right now, but the trend in mobile phone technology is for users to be able to wave their phone over a scanner instead of a credit card to make payments at stores and restaurants. The process is called Near Field Communication, or NFC, and is being rolled out in more and more mobile phones as we speak.

3. Easy social sharing. 
Recently launched by Facebook, social gestures have become one of the latest trends in social media. Social gestures apps essentially let users share what they are reading or doing online without having to do any actual posting to their page. The first time they use one of these apps, like Spotify, they are asked to approve sharing. From then on, their activities will be shared without them having to do anything. Many people love these apps, so they’ll continue to be huge throughout the next year.

4. HTML5.
For the average user of technology, this isn’t really a big thing, but for developers everywhere HTML5 is incredibly exciting. The trend towards using HTML5 means that developers can create a richer, more meaningful experience that works across platforms. This is less work for the developer and offers myriad benefits to users.
Look for even more big technology booms to continue to roll out in the coming years as we learn even more ways to make mobile devices, social networking sites, good old television and every other technology we have even more engaging and exciting.
