Way back in 1997...

I was in Yurrup for a holiday. I watched in amazement as a girl of about 12 walks up to a vending machine, takes out her cell phone and points it at the soda machine like a Star Trek phaser...she pushes a button and her can of drink comes out! She never touched the machine other than to retrieve her drink and the price of the drink goes on her cell phone bill...This was in 1997...and we still don't have that technology here, and we're all excited about 4g or 5g? I view "smart phones" as crack for techno-junkies...they are nothing more than tracking devises. I don't own one and will not. Perhaps if these people would watch the television show "Person of Interest" they'd understand.

Silence isn't always golden....sometimes it's yellow.
