This article I found quite comical and interesting. It’s crazy to think how much money we would have had to spend back in ’91 to have all 13 of those separate items and today, we have all 13 of those items AND about a million more apps that enable us to do just about anything we want all on our cell phones. Also, the fact that Steve mentions just how technologically advanced we’ve become in as little as two decades. Younger kids may not see the big deal in how much change has happened but I definitely appreciate how far we’ve come and that it’s affordable as well.
After watching the video of the “Little Printer” I actually thought to myself, “Where can I buy this?”. To me, I find it to be an actually refreshing idea. Obviously printers are not a new thing but this is like your own personal newspaper where you can print off things that you want to read about or are actually worth reading, for myself anyway. I think Berg has gone in a different direction that no one has really thought of and bringing back the physical part of memories/stories seems like something a lot of people would like.
My thoughts on Technology and how it’s changing our future, is that as the years go on technology is evolving and in a positive way. Some would say that we depend on technology too much, but with technology comes more innovation and better futures for us. As said in the article, with so much technology that we have, it’s become possible for children to learn more than they do in classrooms by getting online. We have so many resources that are accessible to everyone even if they are not rich or have millions of dollars to spend on going to an expensive University. The more technology we have the better our futures are looking.
