For the letter W, let’s focus on....
Isn’t it a curious thing how technology and progress moves on and before you know it things that seemed miraculous are suddenly burdensome when we look back at them now what with all the changes to their evolution.
Consider the wireless phenomenon. First it was computers. We had to free the computer so we could take it to the lazy boy chair and eat dinner while playing Prisoner of Deadzone for 27 hours and catching the latest TV show. We needed wireless. Those old computers tied us down. They were burdensome.
Then the internet came along and wowed us with its amazing connectivity. But after awhile, we realized that once again we were tied down with clunky dial-up modems that spoke in some alien language we didn’t understand when it connected. We needed wireless. Those old modems tied us down. They were burdensome.
Even the telephone was a wonder to behold at one time. To be able to speak to somebody so far away without worrying about them seeing that you hadn’t showered in days and your hair stood straight up. Amazing. Convenient. But then you wanted to have phone sex without your parents hearing you and the only place the phone cord would reach that had any privacy was in the cabinet under the sink. You needed wireless. Those corded phones held you down. They were burdensome.
