Why, In MY Day...

Speaking of generational divisions, here are a few things that have been invented just since I joined the planet:

  • battery-operated watches / digital watches
  • pocket calculators
  • blow dryers
  • electric toothbrushes
  • microwave ovens
  • cassette tape players/recorders
  • compact disk (CD) players/recorders
  • DVD players/recorders
  • anti-lock brakes
  • frost-free freezers
  • personal computers 
  • self-cleaning ovens
  • cell phones
  • You Are Here: the internet 

(I didn't include medical advances, which would be a huge list on its own.)

I'm sure I've forgotten many. They are mostly designed to save time or make life easier. Have they?
