Embracing Creative Revolutionary Tools

By: cathy

Nintendo has done it again. During the '80s, Nintendo took the video game market by storm. It entered the market with its first portable video game, Game and Watch that came out with titles such as Donkey Kong and Super Mario Brothers. Gameboy quickly followed with a handheld gaming device that is perhaps the most famous Japanese personal consumer product since the Walkman. From its modest three-story headquarters in Kyoto, Nintendo has garnered 90% of the video game market in the US and 70% of the business in Japan.

Now comes Wii, the fifth generation home video game console released by Nintendo. If any system has ever had the potential to shake things up, it's the Nintendo Wii. The entire philosophy behind Wii is entirely different from the likes of PlayStation3 and Xbox360, largely because Nintendo realized that playing by the same rules as everyone else was a quick route to third-place irrelevance. Wii is the most compact of the next-generation consoles, weighing just 2.7 pounds and measures 8.5 inches long by 6 inches wide by less than 2 inches thick. It has clean, sharp lines and a glossy white finish. Its gaming experience draws heavily on the concept of virtual reality, where the player's physical movements are translated directly on to the character onscreen.

According to Wikipedia.com, the console had a code name of “revolution” until April 2006. According to Nintendo Style Guide, they considered using the name Revolution for this console, but apparently, revolution is not ideal. It is long and hard to pronounce in some languages. They initially got negative reactions from game developers and of the press for changing “Wii” over “Revolution”. Nintendo spells “Wii” with two lower case of “i” characters which means to resemble two people standing side by side, representing two players gathering together, as well as to represent the console's controllers. They further explained that they wanted something that was short, easy to pronounce and distinctive.

Undoubtedly, Nintendo's success came from its creativity. They revolutionized the next generation of video games by using new technology. In the workplace, there is also a revolution that is making noise in the business scene called Internet Faxing or eFax.

We are used to a regular fax machine that is composed of a scanner, a modem and a printer. This traditional method requires a phone line, and only one fax can be sent or received at a time. Today, Internet faxing services has replaced the old style fax messaging. With Internet faxing, a digital document is sent directly over the Internet instead of over the phone line.

Experts say this web-based service offers a quick and easy way to share documents without being tied down to the traditional fax machine, making office work more efficient. Because the documents sent through the Internet does not have to be printed out, they are sent in the same existing form from a computer document. Electronic documents do not have to be converted to paper to be sent, so there are no restrictions on dimensions. Aside from the fact that you will save yourself from purchasing papers and toners, it also saves physical space, because you do not need a room for a fax machine.

Internet Faxing and Nintendo Wii are just a couple of machineries that modern technology has offered us. These impressive tools that we come to embrace are certainly enjoyable, useful, fast and are here to stay as long as there are consumers who are always willing to embrace bold new ideas.
