Heh yeah, I remember when so much that is now commonplace was revolutionary. I mean it’s little things. I remember when a sports game on the West Coast would end late and I couldn’t find the result in the paper so I’d have to find out who won from either word of mouth or flipping channels. Nowadays, I can get the notification for who won on a phone. It’s little things like that.

Just to put things in perspective: Most of us who lived through 9/11 first heard about it either from a friend or by flipping on the news. 15 years later, we get bombarded by breaking news like that on an almost constant basis via our cellphones. Even bog-standard cellphones now have apps for a dozen different news services that will bombard your with breaking news notices.
