Alvarez Technology Group’s Luis Alvarez joins Power Talk Radio to talk tech changes since 2008

Alvarez Technology Group’s very own CEO Luis Alvarez joined host Mark Carbonaro on Power Talk Radio to discuss how tech has changed since 2008 when President Obama first came into office. Thanks to Luis’ years of experience in the IT industry, he’s more than qualified to share practical insight into the field.

Mark introduced the topic with examples of how technology usage has changed at the personal user level, with 2008’s laptops now replaced by tablets and smartphones for mobile work.

“You think back eight years ago: when you were talking about a smartphone, you were talking about a Blackberry,” said Luis. “Back then, you had about 139 million phones that were being sold in a year, which sounds like a big number, until you consider that last year, we sold 1.4 billion phones worldwide. It’s an order of magnitude that’s just staggering.”

Over the course of the episode, Luis and Mark discussed that despite how monumental the changes in modern technology have been in less than a decade, it’s not the kind of thing that people really notice as it’s happening.

“In 2008, Facebook had essentially just launched, it had about 100 million users, now they’re up to almost 2 billion users,” said Luis. “It’s just the level of progress that we have experienced in eight years, that we just kind of take for granted.”

They went on to discuss where we will be in another eight years, with Mark citing possible advances like self-driving cars, smartphone dominance of the computing market, and the potential extinction of the desktop computer.
