Jason Hope Predicts Internet Of Things Will Drive Next Wave Of Innovation

Jason Hope, one of Arizona’s most famous tech entrepreneurs, has recently taken to the blogosphere, releasing a series of articles that detail all of the exciting developments that he sees taking place within the group of technologies broadly termed the Internet of Things.

Hope argues that technological progress has stagnated over the last 50 to 75 years. But he sees that quickly changing as the Internet of Things revolutionizes nearly every field of commerce and daily life.

Innovative stagnation

Jason Hope points to the fact that, when many of today’s Baby Boomers were growing up, cartoons like the Jetsons and shows, such as Star Trek, told of things to come, a future in which every family would have a flying car and in which computers could bake cookies from raw elements like carbon and oxygen. Hope notes that not only has almost none of this materialized, the technologies and amenities of the late ’50s mostly haven’t been significantly improved upon.

Hope points out that, although many people don’t know this, the jet airliners of the late ’50s and early ’60s were actually considerably faster than those of today. One jetliner that was in common usage in the year 1960, the Convair 880, was capable of cruising at nearly the speed of sound. That’s almost 25 percent faster than a typical jet today.

But Hope sees this disappointment of failed progress coming to an end. As the Internet of Things comes online, people may well have their own flying cars soon.

Desiree Perez -the manager and head negotiator of the music streaming service Tidal- has been involved with talks with Samsung on a possible partnership to save Tidal. Tidal has been having a slow decline in revenue. The quality of the service and the high profile musicians who distribute their music on Tidal, make it worth keeping of course.

Samsung has struck up deals with Kanye West’s Life of Pablo. Kanye West has released music exclusively on Tidal in the past.
