This clustered article is a reaction to an article written by Dan Tynan of Yahoo Tech. His article is entitled, “10 Annoying Technologies That Need to Die Right Now.” The following technologies are mentioned:
- Adobe Flash Player
- Phone Bloatwares
- Website Pop-ups
- Unskippable Video Ads
- Phone Notifications
- Rate This App Requests
True enough these things being enumerated are annoying elements on our screens. Their nuisance challenges the notions of the existing practices of security. Some of them offers convenience, but, they actually give more frustrations than ease. For commercial uses, pop-up advertisements can be counter-intuitive because it makes the viewers more pissed off than being interested with the product. In other words, the virtual entities mentioned somehow defeats the purpose why they are there in the first place.
I agree with Dan Tynan on most parts of his posts. There are some details that the things he mentioned can still be useful in the future. It could be functional on some contexts too. I mean to say, the way technology is used can be very relative to a particular culture or community. To be clear I am not trying to argue with the author, I just want to contribute to the building blocks of knowledge for a better and sustainable environment in the internet.
The following related articles below contain my opinions and experiences with the things enumerated above.
