We seem to take much of what we have today for granted. I hear all the complaints about the iPhone and I cannot help but think how spoiled we have gotten to be so concerned over something so trivial. My father's engineering team worked with computer systems that took up entire blocks but yet still did not have the power that I have in my hands right now as I am sending this on my IPad. My first cell phone was huge as it had a battery the size of a shoe box with a home phone handset. Try sticking that in your pocket! Phone calls where $3.00 a pop a minute.

I've checked my emails,watched the news and done some business. So perhaps instead of whinging that this is not good enough or complaining about minor issues try to appreciate how fast and how far we have come in a few short years. Because of the nature of the beast we will always complain but for a moment just pause to appreciate and look with wonder at what we have.

With all due respect, this notion that things were better in the old days is a bunch of
