Greetings 2017! Another year has passed, also reminding us that we must be prepared to accept the new things and let go of the old ones. Everyone will be buzzing and writing about whatever new that comes along in the future; however, things that have been replaced will forever perish though they have brought drastic differences in our lives.
Let’s find out about the 5 most memorable things to say goodbye to in this year.
Vine is no more…
Vine was already acquired by Twitter in 2012, primarily became famous due to its short videos and soon afterwards, the researchers revealed that 3.64 percent of all Android users preferred Vine in 2014. However, latest figures show only 0.66%, either Vine’s popularity fell or the number of Android users.
Despite the app’s marvelous growth in the shortest time possible, somewhere down the line it failed to generate revenue. Apps like Snapchat and Instagram came up with better features that naturally attracted more users who invested into those.
Finally, in October 2016 Twitter announced to sell Vine after keeping it on auction.
Yahoo is just an exclamation now!
The Forbes’s the “Saddest $5 Billion Deal in Tech history” tells about Yahoo, which agreed to sell itself to Verizon that was previously worth of $125 billion dollars since its inception in 1994. Unfortunately, the company’s stock price started to decline from 2008 and never improved again.
Even though Verizon is still ensuring absolute control over various parts of Yahoo, the latter can never be an independent entity again.
iPhone has lost its jack…
Apple’s latest design, the iPhone 7 does not have an audio jack for connecting with earphones but fast Bluetooth based connection.
Moreover, the company believes in, by removing the headphone jack it has created further opportunities for musicians to experiment with their songs and ensure better music listening experience.
Hoverboards and Samsung Galaxy Note 7s
I found the review of Galaxy Note 7 pretty alarming that read, “Don’t buy the Galaxy Note 7, and return it if you’ve already bought it.”
It seemed there’s a bomb planted inside every one of them meant to go off at some point while talking.
The reason for the explosions was obvious, the liquid within the lithium packed batteries is highly flammable; hence, any short circuits caused the device to catch fire easily when heated.
Following the trend, even the iPhone 6 also caught fire.
