Technological Advances

This weekend, I found myself fascinated at the technological advances that have been made just within my lifetime. I remember growing up and playing Oregon Trail on the green screen computers at school. I don't even know if they make that game anymore. Now, you have all of these lifelike graphics for almost all games.

Atari was the first video game console that we had at home. Now, my son, who is only five, walks around the house playing his handheld Nintendo DS. There is no longer the need to be at home to play meaningless video games. It seems that playing outside with trucks or in the dirt is a thing of the past.

I found myself wondering how people ever kept up with their favorite shows without the help of DVR or TiVo. I record three shows every Monday night while watching Monday Night Football. (I loved that the Broncos got walked on last night. LOL!) I catch up on WWE Raw, My Own Worst Enemy, and Locked Up Abroard after the game and throughout the week. I can't imagine missing a single moment of any of them by flipping back and forth during commercials.

Everyone walks around with cell phones in their pockets/purses. I don't think I can even remember the last time I had a home line. There is no need for that anymore. Just call the cell phone and you can reach anyone at anytime anywhere. It just amazes me.

I'm making myself feel really old. To think, I'm only 27. LOL!

Here goes

I watched the premier of the new series "My Own Worst Enemy" last night. I have to say that it floored me. Most television series premiers are really slow, but this was very different. I was hooked in the first ten minutes. My only complaint about it is that I have to wait until next week to see what happens next. I highly suggest that everyone watches it at least once.
