My #1 Son was born in 1982.

At that time, I had a brand new Sony Stereo system that included the latest in turntables.  I had more than a few albums (vinyl platters into which songs were cut).

I had a Konica T4 camera with several lenses and a refrigerator full of film of varying speeds.

I didn't even have a pager, although I did carry one not long after he was born.

I had a Mr. Coffee.

I owned a primitive computer - TRS80 Model 3.  No modem.  At that time, I was actually behind the times.

Today I have an iPod Touch with almost 32gigabytes of music on it.
I have an embarrassing number of computers, including an HP laptop, a MacBook Pro, Wifi at home and 20megabits of Internet bandwidth.
I have a Sony DSC-S70 I keep for nostalgia's sake, and a Canon 60D with several lenses.
I have a Samsung S III from Verizon and I am NEVER out of touch.
And I own a Keurig.

I can't WAIT to see what happens next.

The thing is - my Mom was born in 1926.  The list of changes she has seen in her lifetime just boggles the mind.

The next ten years will boggle yours.

I wish that I could recall the phrase that describes this phenomenon... anywho, I never have been a gadget person... technology does not inspire me BUT that is not to say that I am not awed by it... and yes, Grannie has seen a lot... and it does indeed boggle the mind to know that a person has seen all the social and technological advances that are taken for granted because for them, they have "always been"...

My kids only half believe that we had just a black/white TV when I was a kid. They've never been without cell phones, computers or remote control TVs. Technology is going to exploded in the next few years.
