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
Cable TV
Cell Phones
The Telegraph
Personal Computers
MP3 Players

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