The Place Technology is Headed

So, the iPhone 6… it bends… you put it in your pocket for a moment, tie a shoelace, or pick something off the ground, and then suddenly your phone is bent… this is Apple came out with this year. Sales? Not very good. I know no-one with an iPhone 6. Why? Because it is shit…

Anyway, whilst technology is  advancing at an alarming rate, I can’t help but wonder… will products become more and more fragile? I mean, my phone currently is a replacement for my Samsung Galaxy S3. It is the Samsung Galaxy Y, and it is a cheap model… well it was still £60, but it is crap (just saying – don’t get it. It closes messages and turns itself off and has terrible RAM) however, I have dropped that phone on the floor countless times. It smashes open, and the battery and everything flies out, but the screen hasn’t cracked, the phone still works as good (as bad) as it did on day one. My friend, however, had an iPhone 4 (i think) and the screen cracked, and bits came off of it when it was dropped once.

If phones are becoming more and more fragile as time goes on, but the prices keep being bumped up, honestly, I think it will have a negative effect. I mean, people will always buy them, because they are fooled by all the marketing ploys, however one day, one man will stand up and say no, then others will follow. If people actually stop buying it, maybe then apple, and other companies will go back to the drawing board and start really advancing there phones, rather then selling the same phone with minor upgrades every year.

I feel this is the same with the new generation of consoles. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are basically the old consoles with slightly upgraded graphics. Look at the PC, it is still far superior to both consoles. People expected a PC-like console when they purchased this new generation. What they got, they were disappointed with. This generation has had terrible sales. Most people (like myself) literally don’t care about them anymore. In fact, I for one, have stopped playing games really. The industry is terrible. Full of scams, and marketing ploys. All run by people trying to get money.

Money Makers on YouTube

So I assume most people watch YouTube. If that isn’t the case then how come Gangnam Style has like 2 billion views? That is a third of the planet pretty much. It is crazy to think a song like that became so popular! I don’t understand it, he is someone else who has pretty much no talent, but I have already talked about the modern music industry. I am here today to talk to you about the money makers on YouTube. For example: PewDiePie. Ali-A. KSI. All of these super popular idiots on YouTube. They are money makers. I call them ‘Fake’ Youtubers. Why? Because they are fake. They pretend they are reacting to something in a way, and they pretend they are excited for something, or they pretend like they really give a shit about there viewers. Do they? No.

PewDiePie is my arch nemesis. I hate him with an extreme passion. Girls fancy him so they watch him. End of. He isn’t funny. He isn’t unique. He doesn’t do anything worthwhile at all. He got loads of love because he donated a bit of money to charity. What he really did was donate a small amount of his money to chairty because he knew he would attract even more people to his channel so he would make more money then he gave out. That is it. End of.

People like this mainly annoy me because of the amount of videos they release. At least one day, or some, maybe even two, and they make a fuck ton of money out of it. To put it into perspective, at this rate PewDiePie makes 8 million a year. I have heard people say he doesn’t do it for the money. In response I burst out laughing. He does it for the money. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t upload videos in the, what I call ‘bulk upload’ process. When one day, every 2 weeks or whatever, you sit down, play a few games, record you playing them, split the gameplay into loads of parts to make more videos out of them, again so you make more money, and then upload them to YouTube.

I may seem extremely critical of PewDiePie, well loads of YouTubers are the same. Pointless videos just to make money. It is so annoying. Ali-A and KSI are exactly the same. I hate them both. I liked KSI back when he was smaller a bit, but now he is just obsessed with money! Just like all the big YouTubers! It is too annoying. Apparently YouTube are changing there policy soon, to focus more on quality then quantity. They are making so you get put higher up in the search list if you upload videos of better quality rather then constantly uploading videos. All I have to say is, it took them long enough.

Anyway, thanks all for reading. Comment with your opinions if you want, and follow and like if you enjoyed this post!
