So, have you ever had one of those “The Future Is Now!” moments? You know, those instants when, despite your jaded techno-savvy, you’re momentarily stunned by what technology can do?
I just had one, and I’m sure I’m not alone. The spouse and I just received a super-late wedding gift in the form of a Blu-ray DVD player. First I was amazed that it didn’t technically have buttons; there were just little light-up spots on the front of the player which I am actually having trouble not calling buttons. Then I was about to ask Mr. McDoog how to switch the function on our new TV (wooo tax refund!) to the Blu-ray player, when the TV did it by itself. I actually squealed “Are we living in the future?!”
And the answer is yes. We are indeed living in the future. Please share the moment when you knew this to be true.
