    I’m 59 years old, and I have no idea how society functioned before cell phones……..

    I remember when TV didn’t have pictures. What did we call it back then? Hmmmm …
     
    Y’know, 2 things go when you start to get old. 1 is your memory, and the other … uh …

    Very well, actually- and a lot more quietly and politely. BTW, I’m 67.

    Yep, Danae say it a louder for ‘Big-Brother’ to put down in his book.

    All too soon we all will long the times when there were such things as anonymity and real privacy.

    The other day I was in the airport awaiting an arrival of my daughter and granddaughters.

    I noticed what appeared to be more than half the adults younger than, I’d say 35-40 years old, doing something with their cell phones other than talking into them. Almost all of the teenagers had cell phones or earbuds. The rest of the people were quietly chatting or just sitting and watching people like normal human beings.

    My 35 year old daughter and preteen granddaughters spent most of the day at my house playing with their iPhones and iPods.

    It certainly is the twenty-first century and all those 1950s sci-fi stories that I used to read were really kinda spot on.

    I’ll stick to my log tables, thank you; I haven’t got fast enough fingers for the abacus.
