Predicted Computing Megatrends Prove True

Posted on April 27th, 2015 by admin

Multimedia is the first megatrend that we will examine. Multimedia really means multiple data types or formats, not multiple media. Pragmatically, the term “multimedia” has been used to define computers with the capability to play sound and rich graphics sequences.
