"Just Look That Up"
A friend visited us from out of town last week. I started to give him directions to our house, but he said, "I'll just program the address in to my GPS." And, I must admit, I use our own GPS when trying to navigate in unfamiliar territory. I tried using my phone's app for that some years back, then discovered that there was no cell service in the area of deep East Texas where I was going. Man, did I feel lost...both literally and figuratively.
This isn't a rant about electronics and how dependent on them we've come. I recognize that a visitor to our current world from fifty years back would be amazed at the advances we have. But can you imagine what might be down the pike?
What advances would you like to see in the next few years? I think it would be interesting to hear...or read...well, you know what I mean. Just leave a comment.
