Technology Goes Everywhere – Is Your Website Ready?

Every once in a while there’s a great example of how fast technology has moved and in what direction it has moved. So I have to share.

The other night I was working late and watching a re-run of an episode of Friends. Joey had made it big on a soap opera and had moved into his own apartment. When he was giving his friends a tour of his new place he proudly showed them the phone on the wall in the bathroom. In the late 90’s the joke was that he had a phone hanging next to the toilet and it was also a luxury. Today the humor is in how antiquated the phone on the wall appear compared to digital phones. Who has a land line anymore? Not only has the design aesthetics changed, but the very core of how we use a phone has rapidly evolved. A phone is no longer a phone as it’s now our computer, camera, and whatever apps you’ve put into service.

We no longer aspire to hang a phone in a bathroom. There’s nothing stationery about our phones! Our smart phones FOLLOW us everywhere.

Our handheld devices include a phone and a host of technology. We’re using these devices not only to watch but to PRODUCE content everywhere… Think Kim Kardashian… of course she did a video shoot in the bathroom putting on makeup!

When was the last time you or a professional looked at your business website to review the technology in play? Is it as clunky as a 90’s wall phone? Or does it perform and attract business from potential clients and customers who use handheld devices— everywhere? Isn’t it time to find out?

I'm Vanessa Wood, web designer and WordPress developer. I was once told there are two kinds of people: chippers and bangers. The bangers tear into things like a buzz-saw and usually leave a wake of "saw dust". A chipper, who happens to be me, takes calculated whacks at a project. Yep, I'm a chipper. It comes through in how I handle web projects and it's revealed in the other details of my life.
