I’m currently on a BART train from Lafayette heading towards San Francisco. Last time I made a journey like this I could only access the Internet from my PC. The newest phone I’d used was a flip-phone and it was pretty much only good for calls, texts, telling the time, and playing a small version of poker on.
Today I can write a blog post using an on-screen keyboard, check my email, look up my location using GPS on a map that is downloaded as I need it, and the list goes on.
I am very impressed by how much technology has improved since then. 🙂
