Differences

Differences …in what exactly  ? Almost everything  you can think of  has changed  some for the better and some for the worse , not everything that changes is good as we all know  but some times the differences  in what is now and what it was way back then are so big it is amazing . Look for instance at the  way we do things  and what we buy  , we used to sit and talk to each other , now more often than not we send an e mail ,  tweet , or get on  faceache , hardly ever do we actually talk to friends any more . How long since you actually talked to someone now that a few years ago you would make sure you talked to every day ? How long since you met your friend in a coffee shop , had a coffee then went shopping  ?  Then there is the way we watch television , that has come a very long way from  the old black and white  ones we first  had. Now we have surround sound, all digital , tons of  stations to watch , all the bells and whistles. When it was first invented you had to actually get up and change channels , but now we can have a remote control that lets us change channels from anywhere in the room.  We can also program them to record things or to switch  channels when you want to without you having to do it . These days you can even use your ” smart phone ”  to record something even if your not home  amazing isn’t it  ?

Smart phones is another area that the differences between now and  years ago is astonishing , phones once were  tethered to the wall  , and  you had to go between an operator  who connected the call to you . Then they went to everyone having their own and their own numbers . After those came  the mobile  big as a brick and as heavy , and people who had them called them that , now look at the mobiles of today they can do everything except get you a cup of coffee or do the dishes. As to whether  this is a good thing or not is anyone’s guess   time will tell  you can use them now for so many things makes you wonder what next . You can even use them on the internet  and order things from anywhere in the world , or connect to others using something like  Skype  and  talk while seeing the person again from anywhere in the world.

When talking of differences  we come to the car , look how much different they are today , who would have thought they would have changed so very much ? The first ones  were square and very slow  and not game to go more than  the walking pace of a horse , it was deemed to be unsafe , come along way since then that is for sure  the speeds they do now is mind blowing . Also now to they have automatic transmissions so no need to worry about the need to learn how to sort out all those gears . Now you can get ( like the smart phones )  ones with so many bells and whistles  that  they are worlds apart from the original cars . They now also are used  for sport , racing, drifting, drag racing  , all sorts of  ways that were never even thought of way back when . I bet the inventor never saw those possibilities  when he first invented them he just wanted an easier way to get around.

One more thing  I will mention is the washing machine and boy how they have changed, from the old round ones with the hand wringers to  the modern programmable  ones we see today  . The differences again are amazing  and these at least  are very good changes making it so much easier to get the boring chore of the never ending washing pile done . They used to  last for many years but things as they are now   are made to be  obsolete with in a few years

, its called planned obsolescence most now are lucky to last out the warranty . Let’s  face it the people  who make them need to sell lots and lots of them or they go out of business, they need them to break  down within a short time .

Also is amazing is the fact of how many people judge you by what you have   rather than who you are and what you are like . So how can you judge people  on the basis of what they own, and not what  they are  ? You cannot know at all a person by what they have rather  than what they are  , you do not know them so how can you judge ? Unfortunately  too many people  are just like that  today more is the pity …

I have good news and bad news: Bad news is there is no good news: But the good news is that there is no bad news…
