Connect-A-Tech

Gadgets and apps allowing for sharing of multimedia platforms

Implications - Many consumers today own virtually every electronic device available: a TV, smartphone, laptop, tablet, desktop, etc. The difficulty lies in being able to use all of these devices from one location or to connect them all in one simple way. While cloud computing has enabled file-sharing and other functions across multi-media, there are a variety of other tools and applications that tech innovators are creating to make connecting across platforms even more user-friendly and convenient. These platform-integrating applications are a must for tech-obsessed consumers who want easy ways to stay connected and share content across their gadgets.
