Good gosh what a pack of old-fogey luddites!!!!

Seriously, how many times have we heard that a new technological innovation is going to be the end of life as we know it, the death of interpersonal relationships and a dire threat to the very thread that holds decent society together?

Probably ever since Og discovered that he could send a message to Zog on the other side the valley using smoke. I can just see the other cavemen sitting around clucking their tongues in disapproval.

The following are some of the things that have been so villified:

Answering Machines
Microwave Ovens
Call Waiting
Electric Refrigerators
Caller ID
Automobiles
VCR's
Cable TV
Telephones
Cell Phones
The Telegraph
Personal Computers
MP3 Players

Come on folks, we ain't that old yet!!!
