Cloud technology and AI are rapidly changing the state of our technological landscape. Many old forms of technology have started to become obsolete, as a growing number of new tools utilizing these new forms of technology are making things easier.
However, the cloud and big data are also offering some benefits that help older forms of technology stay relevant. USB drives are an example. Despite the growing relevance of cloud technology, global customers still spend over $35 billion on USB devices and the market is growing over 9% a year. Ironically, newer technologies may be helping make USBs even more useful by making them easier to backup and making data recovery easier.
