Old Vs New Gadgets
At one time certain innovations were deemed ‘amazing gadgets’. Now for the most part we consider them ‘old hat’ and look upon them with horror.
Indeed the younger generations tend to mock the technology of decades past, or worse still, seem ignorant of their very existence. Taking for granted gadgets that do much of what we used to do as daily routine.
Should we care?. Most certainly we should, if for the only reason the past shapes our future
It is my opinion that we should give these amazing gadgets the respect they deserve. Not only for paving the way for future more high tech gadgets. But for all the fond memories that these once very cool gadgets gave us. How they enhanced and enriched our lives, turning us into generations that could now do things we had only ever dreamed of doing. How many career were launched on the back of this emerging technology??.
How much inventive talent has emerged on the back of using what were once deemed technologically innovative gadgets. How much easier has your life been by using labour saving gadgets, throughout the home, in the workplace and in our schools and for leisure, gadgets take centre stage.
Vintage Gadgets Immortalised in Song!
Gadgets old and new have infiltrated every aspect of our modern life since their innovation. Yet it’s the part of our lives that we do take for granted, and only when they are damaged stolen or we have to do without them do we realise the impact that this has on our daily living.
‘Hand on heart, could you honestly live without your gadgets??”
To my mind we should celebrate both old & new gadgets. Our cool gadgets, and the not so hip gadgets we have used over time. Let’s celebrate the impact of these amazing gadgets with a trip down memory lane comparing the old with the new.
Who wants to get the party started? Lets kick off with this old style ‘Gramophone’. Must have been a break through in home entertainment at the time.
Now compare it to what we use nowadays
Work life and education were made easier for the fact that we could now store our daw on the floppy disk and the mobility this gave us was fantastic. I can recall a few scary moments when a disk containing important data was damaged or lost. The issue with the floppy disk was that they could only store so much.
Technology is progressing at such a fast rate and the gadgets we use today reflect that. Most appliances have some for of micro chip inserted into its mechanism. Computer gadgets give our lives ease of purpose
A visit to the salon must have been like taking your life in you hands with the element blowing freely not only on you hair but all over your face. This young lady seems to be the epitome of elegance or should I say tolerance. Her newly quaffed hair style doesn’t look like sits going to last much longer.
Communicating with friends & loved ones is now instantaneous. Our working lives have been revolutionised with the advent of technological gadgets that defy the rules of nature.
We should feel much more appreciative of the gadgets that went before the ones we use today. for had it not been for them we might all still be using our cave ancestors tools. Need I say more!
