In 2023, the world will be a very different place. The technology that we rely on every day is constantly evolving and changing, which means that the industries that rely on it are too. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at five big tech stories to watch in 2023. From augmented reality to artificial intelligence to blockchain, there’s no telling what will happen in the next year or so. So be sure to stay tuned and pay attention to these five stories in order to better understand where the industry is headed.
Facebook’s Libra Coin – Cryptocurrency
Facebook’s Libra Coin
Facebook is reportedly working on its own cryptocurrency called Libra. The social media giant has been silent about the project for months, but it’s now come out with a white paper detailing how the coin will work.
According to Facebook, Libra will be a “stablecoin” – a digital token that uses cryptography to maintain its value and avoid price fluctuations. Facebook plans to launch the currency in 2020 as part of a larger effort to help people buy and sell items using new technology.
The company hasn’t revealed much about how Libra will work, but it does plan to use blockchain technology and other security measures to protect users’ data. Facebook also wants to make it easier for people to pay for goods and services using their phones.
This isn’t the first time Facebook has tried to enter the cryptocurrency market. In 2014, the company launched Bitcoin Cash – a spinoff of Bitcoin that used blockchain technology to achieve faster transactions. But critics accused Facebook of trying to muscle its way into the lucrative sector and driving up prices.
YouTube Red’s New Feature: Offline Viewing
YouTube Red is introducing a new feature that allows users to watch videos offline. This means that users will no longer have to worry about data usage when watching videos. YouTube Red will also be giving users the option to save videos for later playback. YouTube Red is available on Google’s Android and iOS platforms.
Apple’s Plans for CarPlay and the Future of the iPhone
Apple has been working on a new carplay system for years, and it’s finally ready to launch. Car play is a platform that allows users to access their iPhone apps in vehicles. Originally, the plan was to have CarPlay available in all new cars by 2022. However, due to some delays, Apple now plans to have CarPlay available in more than 50 percent of new cars by 2023.
The reason for the delay is partly because Apple wanted to make sure the system was perfect. But also because CarPlay needs cooperation from automakers in order to work properly. So far, most manufacturers have been supportive of the platform, but there are still some that aren’t quite there yet.
One of the biggest challenges for CarPlay has always been controlling phone conversations while driving. Currently, you can only talk on one phone at a time through CarPlay. Apple is working on a solution called “PhoneKit.” This will allow drivers to answer calls and control other functions without having to take their hands off the wheel.
In addition to PhoneKit, Apple is also developing an app called “Maps” for CarPlay. Maps will let drivers access directions and search for points of interest without having to take their eyes off the road. Finally, Apple is working on a new system called “Siri Remote.” This will let drivers control music playback, climate control, and other functions using voice commands instead of touch screen input
Amazon Go’s Expansion Plans
Amazon Go is set to open up in Chicago this year, and the company has plans for even more locations. Amazon Go uses sensors and technology to track what customers are buying and not buying, so the store can just charge customers for what they take. This means no more having to search through aisles for your items or going through the checkout process. The stores are also very small, so it’s easy to skip over them if you don’t want something. Amazon Go is already available in Seattle, and the company has plans to open up more locations in 2023.
Twitter Sues Facebook Over Libra
Twitter has filed a lawsuit against Facebook over their upcoming cryptocurrency, Libra. The suit accuses Facebook of violating antitrust laws by working on the project together without consulting with Twitter. Libra is set to be released in early 2023, and is expected to challenge traditional currencies like the US dollar.
This lawsuit could have a big impact on the future of social media. If Twitter can show that Facebook violated antitrust laws, it could force Facebook to stop development on Libra. Alternatively, if Facebook wins the lawsuit, it could open the door for other companies to start developing their own cryptocurrencies. This is an important issue because cryptocurrencies are still relatively new and there is a lot of uncertainty about how they will work in the long run.
