What in the world happened to us? In 2007, Steve Jobs walked onto a stage in San Francisco, California, and introduced us to a revolutionary device known as the iPhone. It had no app store, was bad at making phone calls, and compared to today's devices, it was clunky and could do only rudimentary tasks.
People often respond to messages or posts with animated gifts. It's so common now, but it's hard to imagine what the equivalent would've been during conversations back in, say, the 90s. I can only imagine:
Maybe I need to reflect on the very real possibility that I'm just a bit salty about this whole thing because, when I was playing sports in school, our wound care consisted of an old toolbox full of glorified duct tape, an ice machine that might have a few cubes but only if the Pepsi wasn't selling well that night, and no shortage of dads who would loiter around the bench laughing at your grotesquely swollen ankle telling you to "walk it off".
It's like walking into a men's clothing store, asking the clerk if he can help you find a suit, and having him say, "Sure, but first I need to deal this gentleman a few games of craps."
