Tell the World Your Story

Since you were born, what has happened in the world of technology?

Wii
By: Luis The Wii first came out in November 2006. The Wii is a family game system that has a variety of games like Super Smash Brothers and others. The Wii is competing with the Xbox 360 and Ps3. So far that’s going bad for them. But, the wii is a good gaming system for the whole family.

The system was unveiled in September 2005 by E3. The console won many awards. When the system came out, people were buying it until the Xbox 360 and Playstaion 3 came out. The only difference between Wii and Xbox360 and Playstaion3 is that the Wii is motion active, but the Playstation 3 and Xbox360 use wireless controllers and plug in controllers.

There is a game on the wii called Tenchu Shadow Assasin which came out on December 8th 2006. The game has made the wii very popular until the Ps3 released FF13 which made the Wii go down in rank. The wii is a good system for your family and friends.

The First iPod
Zach. W. The iPod-a portable music player that fits right in your hands-was invented in October of 2001. On the first iPod, you could only play the game brick and a few more games. The first iPod had a scroll pad not touch. The first iPod had a 5-gigabyte hard drive and could hold up to 1000 songs. The first iPod worked by click wheel, and connected to an Apple computer through a Fire wire cable .The first iPod coasted 399 dollars. The 10-gigabyte was featured in 2001. The 10-gigabyte could hole up to 1000 song. Then the 160-gigabyte could hold up to 2000 songs. In addition, the original iPod shipped headphones, an Apple Firework cable, and apple power adaptor. On the iPod, you could not watch videos or photos. It also had a very fast charge. The iPod provides up to 10 hours of charge. They put in better batteries because the one that was in there did not hold a charge for a long time. The weight of the iPod was 6.5 oz. That was light. Well there, it is all about the first iPod.

YouTube
By: Jamme S. YouTube is a website where anyone can upload and watch videos. It was created by three former PayPal employees on February 14th, 2005, and is currently owned by Google. With the slogan "Broadcast Yourself," YouTube is available in 29 different languages worldwide. Not only can you just watch and upload videos, but you can make a YouTube account, which can be used as a personal website source like MySpace and Twitter. With an account, you can save all of your favorite videos to your "favorites," upload videos, message people, comment on other videos, and a lot more. Uploaded videos have to be less than 15 minutes long (unless authorized), and can’t have any obscene content. YouTube also categorizes some videos that you have to be 18 or older to watch.

Every April Fool’s day YouTube pulls a prank on the web. For example, 2008, all the video’s on the main page were redirected to Rick Astley’s music video for ,”Never Gonna Give You Up”, which is now known as RickRolling. In 2009, by clicking on a video on the pain page, the whole computer screen would turn upside down. So YouTube has a big surprise every year on April Fool’s Day. YouTube is one of the most viewed websites on the web, and gets more and more popular every day. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YouTube

Playstation
By: Brandon W. The first playstation is a classic console,even today. The first playstation was very large, and came with a controller with console for purchase. Then in 1996, they came out with a new controller. The newer controller had new things called, Analog sticks. They found a better way to make racing games better, and so on. They came out with games and the new controller that require that.





By: Dylan G. ;Edited by: Michael M The PlayStation was released in 1994 in Japan on December 3rd. It's release date in North America was September 9th 1995. One of their best selling game series was Crash Bandicoot, it sold over 500,000 copies the first year. The PS had sold over 14,000,000 system sold in the first year.

Sony's next system was the PlayStation 2 which came out March 5th 2000. It quickly became the biggest system in the world, (until Xbox 360 came out). Until that time,

Sony was coming close to trying to get back to the top of the gaming system, but they made the leap when people heard they were making a new system, the PlayStation Portable (PSP). The Sony PSP quickly overcame the 360. It was the biggest handheld system for about a year., but It lost the top rank when people heard Xbox was making a 720 (which never happened.) The PSP can hold games, movies, music, picture, and Internet.

The biggest system in the world right now is the Sony PS3. It came out November 11 2006. You can listen to music, watch videos, download games, look at pictures, and have Internet, and you will still have 200 gigs (If you have the 250 gig like I do.) There has only been one bug with the PS3 was in the fat version the time was off about an hour unlike the red ring of death XBOX.

Text Messaging
By: Zoe S. Text messaging is a (SMS) short messaging service used to send information to people. The first text message was sent in December of 1992 when Neil Papworth sent the message “Merry Christmas” off his computer to Richard Jarvis’s phone.

People use SMS for work, and also to send messages to friends and family. The record of text messages is 182,689 messages in one month. Some people say SMS is great because it’s easier to talk to people and quicker and it also wastes less time. However, others say it’s not so great because some people lack communication skills to text properly.

Digital Imaging
By: Nellie M.
The T.V. is related to the digital camera, both record and save data. The digital camera is unlike the television in the way it does not have networks. The first VCR was made in 1951, when it was the first to successfully record television broadcasts and save them on a magnetic tape.
In the 1960’s, NASA started using digital imagery in satellites. They used computers to enhance images sent from space probes.
The cameras themselves didn’t come along until the 2000’s. The first ones didn’t take video, only pictures. Now they take video, pictures, they have gone as far as camera phones! Digital cameras do things that film cameras cannot do. Such as edit a picture, or delete it before being developed. Instead of film to pick up the images, a microchip in the camera does it. These are two forms of the digital camera.

Popular Video Game
By: Dustin E
Call of duty modern warfare 2. In that game you can play online or you can play off line. If you had your own chose you would want play on line. You can play with all your friends and if you want you could play against people that are not on your team. Because if you died a lot you end up going to the final stand if you die when you are in it you will lose the battle. Or you can win the fight but that will take a lot of time to win won or to lose one. It does not mater if your on line or not you are going to die one way or another.
