Software as a service doesn’t just apply to computers or mobile devices anymore. In this day and age SaaS is everywhere from our pockets to our wrists, technology is advancing at an unbelievable rate. But is this a good thing? There are mixed opinions as to whether or not people actually want technology attached to them all the time. Should technology really be such a part of our existence?
Although technology and new inventions are the key to the advancement of the human race, many argue that there should be a line drawn. Wearable technology is popping up everywhere, from Fitbits to eyeglasses to key fobs, more and more people are actually becoming part of their technology, instead of the other way around.
According to a survey of more than 1,000 consumers, there are some serious mixed opinions about wearable technology. Based on this colorful infographic by Colloquy, one in three people is worried about privacy when considering buying wearable technology. And that’s not all, there’s the simple cost factor that deters people from buying them as well. 63% of people say they are simply too expensive. On the other hand, very few participants think wearables are unattractive, meaning most people would consider wearing one.
At the end of the day, these new inventions can be seen as useful accomplishments, or intrusive and unnecessary. It’s up to each one of us to make that personal decision for ourselves, however in the SaaS industry there is no doubt that exciting new technologies are always welcome.
