I think information of past technology is pretty cool to look back on and see how far we have come, by the year 2000 there was still 2 million pay phones in America, by 2007 & 2008 pay phones declined 58% and was removed from restaurants, retail & other public places.
I think the kids of today should appreciate the technology we have today, like huge flat screen t.v.'s with High Definition quality, when I was a kid the family t.v. was a black & white 19 inch t.v. most of my drinking water came from a well, not bottled water. We had a yellow rotary home phone, I could go on & on. But as I sit here on my laptop watching my satellite t.v. with a remote control in my hand I am very thankful for what I have lived through and what I have today.
