Some of the things new and exciting to the people in this movie were;
Super eight hand held camera
And of course, the projector so that you can see your images movies
I was thinking that the reason that I have kept up with ever-evolving technology is because of my son, but I think that he just gives me the extra spark that I need to keep searching.
As I think back, I think I have always had that spark of fascination with new tech advances. I have a super 8 film, projector, and camera stashed away in the attic. I had a walkman.. then the cd walkman, now the ipod.. etc.
Now, all I have to do to take a super 8 movie, is download the super 8 app to my phone,
shoot the movie
and I can view it in an instant. And let me tell you, I appreciate it. I look at other people my age who have a hard time figuring out how to open an email, or find a website. I just don't understand how they could have allowed themselves to get so lost.

I knew about it, but I wasn't sure what it was. My son has one (of course) so I played with it. I had him put it on the TV in my sewing room. Now I can stream Netflix and content from my itunes onto my TV. Really fun little device which brings me hours of entertainment.
That being said.. the old guy's point of 'carrying a stereo' with you might forecast our doom, and in a round about way may be correct in the long run, but as far as I am concerned, I am going to kick back, and enjoy the ride down.
