It constantly amazes me how quickly technology advances. When I was a kid I remember when my family first got a computer, and we had to insert one of those large square floppy disc things and then enter in the command prompts to reach the file to play the simple games. And then when I was a teenager and we first got Internet and I was amazed at the ability to look up information on the super slow dial-up connection. Now there are so many superfast ways to connect to the Internet from cool flat-screen monitors, laptops, netbooks and even phones. Cell phones were only for people with money when I was a kid, and I didn't have one until I got married, and now these days most kids I know have them. I often wonder what technology will be like when my kids are my age. Will they even know what VHS and cassette tapes are?
