imageTonight I noticed something I thought was interesting, read on to see if you recognize your generation?

Tonight while leaving the office, I saw three people, plus me, looking down into their smartphone.  Then it hit me, every generation has their OWN gadget!  Check this out, if only for a comical look at the past

Ironic, it’s the personal music which people seem to WANT with them all the time!  And as the generations came and went, the more personal and the more music you could bring with you.  Hey, I can remember seeing my buddy Ken with the first REAL Sony Walkman and he could take his EPs he “didn’t” acquire from Saturday night’s french music station playing “Extended Play” songs!

What’s the deal?  People seem to NEED their own personal “music for the soul” now just as much as they did back in the 70s!  Ok arguably the turntable wasn’t portable, BUT it was a personal music gadget!  And for the time, it was a GREAT way to bring home “food for your soul!”

Ok, that was a nice distraction, I have to turn on my radio, grab a coffee and get back to coding!
