Technology Relationships Paper
What is leading edge technology? Leading edge technology is “In the 1960s & 70s, leading edge was 3GL languages such as COBOL, Fortran, etc. In the 1980s, 4GLs such as Progress and Informix emerged. In the 1990s, terms such as COM object and 32 bit relational databases were coined” (Pratico, 2008). Since the new millennium began, we have been hearing about HTML, NET and other web languages.
What is bleeding edge technology? Bleeding edge technology is “a high-tech product that is so new that its place in the market is ...view middle of the document...

There are many different types of bleeding edge technology. At one time, the very first ATM (automated teller machine) and the first mobile or cell phones were types of bleeding edge technology. The PSP (Playstation Portable) was also, a type of bleeding edge technology because it was not tested by the consumers ahead of time. It was just a portable handheld video system that was developed by Sony to get the attention of frequent video gamers.
 Where a computer is concerned, leading edge technology can be a great thing.
 After a new technology has been created and made available to the consumers, there is a possibility that there will be a decrease in the price after the sale of the technology goes global. The consumer that purchased the product when it was first created purchased bleeding edge technology. The consumer who makes bleeding edge purchases takes all of the risks in order to be the one of the first to own the technology. As I think about bleeding edge technology, I think about the 64-bit hardware and software. Currently, there are many operating systems; however, there is an interval in the production to transfer to 64-bit hardware. The software company did not finance the 64-bit software. What the software company did do was to alter the 32-bit software so it would work with the 64-bit hardware. The 32-bit software was advertised as being faster and because it was proven to be true, the bleeding edge technology became leading edge technology. In other words, the 32-bit software performed well which made it well worth the cost of the technology.
There are several different types of leading edge technology. Wi-Fi is a type of leading edge technology. Wi-Fi is extraordinarily trustworthy and unfaltering. Wi-Fi is has been installed in many places or buildings that are opened to the public such as:
* Churches
* Community centers
* Hospitals
* Libraries
* Fast food restaurants
* Coffee shops
* Main Street of many cities
* Hotels and motels 
At some restaurants, the user would need to make a purchase of food or drink in order to get the daily Wi-Fi access code. Wi-Fi allows the user to gain access to their work when they are away from their office. Wi-Fi also allows the user to access their school work while away from school or home. Wi-Fi is a tremendous advantage to all users because they can gain access while on the go.
    As we view different advertisements, on the computer, on television, and in newspapers and magazines, we see adjectives such as:
* Like new
* Improved
* Latest and greatest
* Better than ever
* Fastest
Most of the time, all of the adjectives describe the same technology which gives the consumer the idea that the product’s capabilities are endless. Many consumers tend to purchase products because of the name popularity instead of for what the product can do. The name of the product should not be the main purpose for purchasing a product. In my opinion, the task that a...
