Posted by: andrew william Post(s) by this bloggerAs of February this year, USA TV transmission just went completely digital. Those who own analogue TV in USA will just see snowy fuzz. Itís amazing to note that since the invention of the teleivision, it has evolved so much in terms of technology and quality.
I remember we used to comment on those who have lived through some of the amazing innovations in history such as the invention of the car, train, telephone, the light bulb etc. We alone have seen some of the most amazing innovations over the last 2 decades that many have not even experienced in the last millennium or so. Talk about computers, hand phone, I pod, Internet, we have it all.
I wonder what new things do we have in store for the future.
Whats that on your roof? It serves no purpose anymore
Sometimes I enjoy watching movies with the 1920ís to 1960ís setting when things were a lot slower and people had time to stop and talk to one another and have time for each other. Now itís almost impossible to find time with anyone even though they all own a hand phone and are easily contactable.
Are we going into an age of impersonal existence? Is technology serving us or are we serving it instead?
