Amazing Technology

I am truly amazed at today's gadgets! Back in the early nineties, cellular phones were HUGE and expensive. Even the plans that were available were expensive. They won't fit into a handbag. My dad used one of those phones because he was a businessman and he was always on the go. Now, they are so small and so inexpensive, almost everyone I know has one. I actually use 2 -- one for my patients and family, another for my online business.

Same goes for games. We had our Game and Watch by Nintendo back when we were small, but these feature only one game per unit. Of course, at that time, people think you're cool if you brought along one of those (but teachers at my school used to confiscate them). Now there's PSP, XBox, and Nintendo Wii. Me? I don't have any of those. I don't even have time to update this blog or to read the books I bought last Christmas! LOL. I just content myself with the games on facebook.

Even TVs have undergone huge changes. When I was small, TVs were black and white, had a cover that could be locked and looked like this huge cabinet. Later on, colored TVs became "in". Now, you have LCD TVs and plasma TVs. I wonder what they will think of next.

I feel old. :P
