Thankful November 27th: Technology

When I look at my current phone (Samsung Galaxy S9), I find it amazing that a little over 20 years ago it would have been fantasy to have so much power in the palm of your hand. Our phones are really mini computers that we can use to make phone calls. And making phone calls on a device that doesn’t have to be connected to a wire was miraculous 40 years ago. I was born in the 1960s, and the technology advances made since then have felt like a 500- to 1,000- year leap. I remember wondering why anyone would need more than 46 mega bites of space on a hard drive. I just added an 8TB external hard drive to my home computer to store photos and music projects. And that’s on top of the 2TB and 4TB drives that are already full. Crazy times. But also amazing times.

  1. I used to carry a pack of 3.5″ floppy disks with me in college. The sound of dial-up modem meant connecting to the world and playing Pinball game on Windows 95 was the ultimate fun for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. So true. I remember when my parents bought their first home computer. I was in college (the university had Mac computers with super basic internet: we could send and receive crud emails), and it was nice to be able to write papers on it and not have to type it out and try to find all of my typos.
