"Did You Know"

This movie was very interesting to me. I thought it was such a great way to get something across to people in such a simplified way. I loved the way it gave all the statistics about what all has happened with technology throughout the years. My favorite part about this movie was how it liked everyone together with all the statistics. It really opens your eyes to see how we are all connected through a device or technology.
I really haven't thought about how things have changed so drastically until I watched this movie. I did not know a computer even existed until I was probably 7 and to know my children will grow up with all types of cool technology really excites me. I can remember when all people had were beepers on their hips. Now, the cell phones are the new beepers. What is so amazing to me is not only can you talk on the cell phones, but now you can access the Internet from that as well. There is really no telling what kind of devices they will have by the time my children come along. The cool part to me is we do not know what comes next, so we can kind of anticipate what device they will come up with next.

  1. I agree, I even remember when it was so cool to have a beeper...I asked for one all the time when I was little because my older sister had one. Now a days, beepers are no longer considered to be cool.
