This story apparently happened word for word like this in real life in Mike’s job, haha!
Talking about GPS: The technology itself is amazing to begin with. But it’s even more amazing, how commonplace GPS is in our daily lives by now. I remember those things being obscure, rare and prohibitively expensive devices. Now I’ve got Google Maps on my mobile phone. I used to pride myself in being able to plan routes and either memorizing them or printing out maps. And for the longest time, I would refuse to use GPS or the like in the car, because I didn’t need them. But one cannot stay a luddite forever. So after getting lost of getting stuck in a traffic jam a few times, I now use those things all the time. Especially because they also tell you when there’s traffic and reroute you.
PEZ dispensers, on the other hand, don’t seem to have improved that much over the same time. But maybe that’s because that technology has already been perfected!
