Absolutely true Neil;
I suspect that your vision of the future might just come to pass. New technology will for some be a blessing and for others like myself sometimes a loss of something precious. I guess I am what they call a late adopter. I do not now nor have I ever owned a cell phone. On the other hand I am not about to give up my digital camera or internet and have lately been looking at the S.P.O.T. locator system that would allow my significant other to know my whereabouts when I am off seeking solitude and solving the puzzle myself on some mountain stream.
