I'm not sure what Mr. Wu exactly meant by easy technology. Is it easy access to a technology or is it ease of use of digital technology. Either way I do not think demanding and easy technology is a choice. In last 20 years digital technology became more accessible for people but it does not mean that it became trivial to use within its limits. From the other hand through time and progression people familiarize with technologies and some task are getting more simple. More complex tasks are might be accomplished easier. I believe it is embedded in human nature. One can see that well in sports. Most of the extreme sports are considered challenging to master yet evolution and development of technology, namely sports equipment makes it easier to master.
Going back to consumer electronic technology. Thanks to iPhone and other devices alike one gets access master technology one the more advanced level. It was President Obama himself who said: “Don’t Just Play on Your Phone, Program It”. I see more and more initiatives that encourage even more and more people to start mastering digital technologies. It is evolution.
My girlfriend got her first laptop relatively late, when she was around 20. When we met, digital technology was for her very off-putting and demotivating. Some time ago I got her iPhone and iPad. She admits that thanks to these devices she became more confident and encouraged to move around digital universe. Now she is sitting next to me and fearlessly is learning to use photoshop and illustrator.
