    When I was younger we had Star Trek characters having video chats with each other. (Too sci-fi to ever happen).
    Now we have video chats with each other on our computers and smart phones.

    Now we have Google and Siri.

    When I was young, parents complained about teens tying up their phone line all the time.

    Now parents complain about teens overflowing their data from being on their phones so much.

    I agree about good music...

    And how about **gasp** ROTARY telephones!! I still have mine, and it still works like a charm. It was my grandma's, all the way back from 1940.

    With Brass fittings and metal body, this thing is indestructible!

    You couldn't break these things if you tried...Instead, it could probably break your FOOT...if you dropped it on yourself!

    Now we have smart phones which do a lot, but they cost a FORTUNE.
