Thanks to technology and all the great gadgets out there, I find myself armed with an iPhone, and iPad, a MacBook and an iPod. Seeing that I use the ipad and the iphone most frequently I have gotten really used to touching things. Incredibly, I am starting to find myself getting confused with things that respond to my touch, and things that don’t. For example, in the last 2 weeks I have tried to tap my macbook screen several times. It amazes me that having grown up in a time when nothing was a touch screen (think Intellivision and Commodore 64) all it took was a couple of years with some touch devices and I have already been reprogrammed. Talking with someone last week made me realize this is becoming more common. He mentioned he tried to make a flyer photo bigger with his fingers.
The world is changing fast, and it looks like I am along for the ride. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
