An on-going IT-revolution has increased the general awareness of computer science, programming, gaming, and smart-TV content. It is as if all of a sudden, everyone is an expert in such complex matters and this is where we need to be careful because there is nothing more frustrating than reviewing material from amateurs trying to pontificate on matters beyond their capabilities.
This page, however, will do no such thing. Instead, this blog will be your favourite reference on computers, IT trends, gaming, and television.

Computers – Are We in the Matrix
You ask – are computers becoming more intelligent with the help of Artificial Intelligence? We answer – you bet they are! You do not have to be a Matrix guru to recognise the direction that we as a species are gravitating towards.
Nevertheless, this is actually a positive trend. Imagine computers so powerful that you can fit into your smartphone or even control the CPU with a holographic interface. Get ready for the future. It is coming for us!
The Path of Information Technology
The computing power of modern computers is likely to overrule Moore’s law, which states that since their innovation, the number of transistors per square inch on circuits has doubled on an annual basis. This is in addition to the power social media has to tailor individually multipurpose platforms for each user. We are definitely living in incredibly exciting times!
Gaming is Very Like Reality
Anyone who doubts the overwhelming pace of technological advancements should look no further than into the gaming industry. We have come a long way since games like Tetris or Atari. Nowadays visually stunning games can be played in free-roaming game environments connecting tens of millions of players across the world.
