  • i dont see anything really changing drastically.. maybe phones and computers will become even more sleek looking or something by the time im 80.. dont think cars will be hovering/flying in my lifetime though.. i do hope for more cures for diseases prior to my passing.. cure for cancer would be nice to be around for.. and cystic fibrosis since its a disease close to my heart.

  • I am 51 years old. Things have changed already. Sense I married my DH 23 years ago. We did not have cell phones , computers, microwaves just came out, I think. We didn't have one. These fancy cars that have keyless enteries. And gas prices were around a $1 I think.

  • I am with you tasches. Our house was the first to get central air conditioning and a color TV. The first because of my father's health. When I got married the farm had just had an indoor bathroom for 3 years. there weren't even calculators other than a paper and pencil.
    Typewriters were the way of business correspondence and calls were put through switchboards. Social networking was stopping in at the burger shack and hanging with your friends or passing notes in school. We can go on and on. I see a trend toward smart houses but also a trend toward a more natural connection with food. I think the future will be dvided on those lines, the super technical and the super simple back to basics cultures and the groups blending the two.

  • I think technology will mostly change as I see my grandchildren using computers in school at the age of five .
