As I was getting off the train today I noticed that the girl in front of me was wearing headphones. Following the cables down I noticed that she was listening to a portable CD player. The thought came to me unbidden: “old school”.
I actually had a short pang of sadness for the girl because she didn’t have an iPod. (It was followed by a brief feeling of guilt for being tech elitist!)
A second later I was smiling as I recalled my love affair with my CD player so many years ago…before realizing that was only seven years previous. Only a few years earlier my walkman owned my heart.
What will we be carrying in seven years from now?
