I'm not saying that I didn't have indoor plumbing or color television when I was young, but we did have a console television with NO remote and a dishwasher that we had to roll over to the sink and hook up to the faucet.
Our television looked much like the one above but I don't think my mom thought of re-purposing our old one like they did!
Now, I'm also not saying that I've seen technology change as much as other generations. My grandpa farmed with horses when he was younger and then switched to tractors...can you imagine that transition? (I had a great photo of Grandpa and my Uncle Larry in a farm wagon pulled by horses but could I find it...no!)
But the technology in my lifetime has changed - especially in cellphones.
I'm looking to move from a Blackberry to a iPhone or Android and just can't decide. This got me thinking about my first cellphone...
I was telling a coworker about my first "cell phone" which I got as a perk of an internship between by sophomore and junior years in college.
It wasn't a cute flip phone and DEFINITELY not a smartphone.
It was one of these...
I call it a "bag phone." It plugged into the cigarette lighter in my truck.
I LOVED it! Such freedom. If only I knew what was coming...
So, what do you think cell phones will look like in another 5 years?
I can only imagine!
