We truly do live in an era of technological wonder. It’s so easy to lose sight of all the technological awesomeness that surrounds us, because we adapt so quickly and take everything for granted. I remember the first time I heard what a GPS was, I was about 12 or 13 years old. The concept blew me away! Satellites! In space! Helping you pinpoint your location to a few meters! Of course, back then it was ridiculously expensive.
Not so today. Nowadays, every third grader has technology in his pocket that would have blown the mind of even the most visionary person just a lifetime ago. But smartphones are around for just about a decade! So has Youtube! Of course, I also just take all that for granted. But every now and then stop and think about how things have changed just in my lifetime. It’s simply amazing! And I am curious about what else I will live to see.
Everything comes with its own problems, risks and drawbacks, of course, as Chuck experiences in this comic strip.
