Since when does every 8-year old own an iPod?

Back in the dinosaur era of the 1980s, my parents bought me a Commodore VIC-20. Remember that bad boy? It was the cheaper relative to the Commodore 64. I didn’t know the difference, nor did I care. I had a computer. Not that I really did anything with it besides hook it up to the […]

Technology Shmology

I remember in grade school (and come to think of it, junior high and high school too!) anytime we had to watch a movie in class the teacher would be fumbling with the VCR, the cables, the remote… this new-fangled technology was too much for them.  Usually a tech-savvy kid would step-in and fix it.
