Isn't wireless technology great! Most of us do not marvel adequate at the technology which we carry around and enjoy every day. Cell phones are usually viewed more as an annoyance than as a technological marvel. When someone's phone goes off in the movie theatre or in church people turn and give a disapproving stare instead of applaud or congratulate the person on their possession of the latest technology. Wireless cell phone technology is a modern marvel although. The possibility one person standing in the wilds of Yellowstone National Park speaking with the other person walking down Wall Street in New York City was unimaginable just a few decades ago yet nowadays we take it for granted.
Wireless internet is the other amazing technology which we complain regarding when it does not work the way we wants it to however that we don't truly appreciate on a daily basis. Isn't it amazing that I can sit at a café in Paris with a cappuccino next to my laptop and Skype a friend living in the Chiang Mai, Thailand! No wires, complete freedom of movement, amazing! An even smaller (dimensionally) miracle of technology is the proliferation of handheld wireless devices which are revolutionizing social networking, job productivity and gaming. Where do my kids want to eat when we travel long distance to visit relatives? Well, pretty much anywhere as long as they have free Wi-Fi. While we eat our burgers or fried chicken we can check the stock market, sports scores, chat with friends, and check our calendars or play games on our IPod touch or some other handheld wireless machine.
