My mind keeps getting blown with how cool things are.
Sitting in a room with good friends and hooking up an iPhone to a wireless network to Skype video call with a friend in another part of the world and we all get to say hi.
Jay, sending me a picture from the small airplane he's flying in, which... a) his phone is taking a really good quality picture! and b) he is flying through the air and his frigging phone can still talk to my frigging phone what is the deal with that?
These things still amaze me. I am still awe struck, and I feel lucky to feel that way.
I remember the first computer we ever had. I remember when we got a colour tv. I remember listening to the radio for my favourite song to come on so I could tape record it and being so frustrated when the DJ would talk over it. I remember buying my first CD. I remember discmans and how they'd skip so easily.
This upcoming generation (whenever a generation starts... I don't know) will have had smartphones all their lives. This stuff may just be... normal.
When in my mind it's incredible, and amazing, and phenomenally awesome.
