Do you ever look at your iPhone and think to yourself, "this is so much cooler than Back to the Future"— I do, all the time. For some reason I compare my iPhone to things I grew up watching in that movie. For some reason, it's my benchmark for all things that I thought the future would be.
The other day, with nothing on TV, the hubby and I started watching parts one and two and all I could think to myself is that my iPhone is so much cooler than anything that Spielberg thought of in this movie. Then of course I thought to myself, "whoa, what happened to the first Jennifer?"
Isn't it funny that I instantly looked it up on my iPhone. Now, how cool is that? You know how long it would have taken me to find out that information if I wondered this in like 1995? What a good daughter she was!
I'm obsessed with my iPhone. I love FaceTime. I think everyone in the world should have an iPhone and FaceTime- then maybe we all wouldn't miss out on watching our families grow up and then we wouldn't grow a part. Those stupid commercials that introduced FaceTime, they made me bawl my eyes out every time!
Then of course there is Words with Friends— the whole reason I needed a Lifeproof case so I could still play while taking a bath. Yup, I'm that obsessed!
I just think to myself, look how far we've come! Can you believe that we have these little computers/phones in our pockets? We can literally look up anything at any moment. I think to myself that my grandparents would have never of believed the technology we have today because I can't even believe it. I wonder what kids today will see over their lifetime! I bet they watch Back to the Future and laugh; Me, I'm beyond amazed, but I'm still waiting for my iPhone to flip out some holigrams, then I'll be beyond impressed!
