This is a weekly challenge from GeneaBloggers called 52 weeks of personal genealogy history.
Week #8 – Technology Week 8: Technology. What are some of the technological advances that happened during your childhood? What types of technology to you enjoy using today, and which do you avoid?
Other advances I remember are the transition to color TV, engineers grudgingly changing from using slide rules to calculators, phones going from having dials to push buttons, and of course, computers. In Florida, many of our schools and stores did not have air conditioners when I was growing up. Hard to imagine now! And yes, we sweated a lot back then!
Today, I enjoy the use of the internet on my own PC, cordless phones, my HD TV, my iPod, and having a CD player and A/C in my car. One technology I tend to avoid is the advances in cell phones. I own one, but still use it mainly as a phone!
