I especially liked the part where she SAT DOWN on the couch, then clicked her exercise program. LOL

I bet all of that technology is already developed, just not (obviously) widely available.

The saddest area is in the medical records where the patient has to fill out new forms every time they see some medical type and all of that sort of info could just as while be on a memory stick which one would plug into the office's computer

Wow - that was cool! Kinda like reading 1984 when we were kids! LOL!

The newspaper was trippy - wonder if it will still 'ink up' your hands?? Ugh...hate that part!

Traci - were you kidding about the exercise program? Because I'm pretty sure she was just logging her progress... but, you could just be being your 'sassy self'! LOL!!

I was so overwhelmed by the possibilities compared to now that I can't really comment either way on whether she was merely noting her exercise progress or doing what Traci sggested. Also as previously noted I was gleefull about no cellphones( Ihave one, but consider texting a giant step backwards)

That reminded me of when we were little kids and in 1st grade and there was always that project where we had to say what we though the future would be like.... and of course then then by future they meant "what do you think like will be like in the year 2000?" I want my flying car and rocket shoes now please.

Me - sassy? Surely you jest?! :P

I didn't catch that she was logging her exercise. Maybe I was just hopeful that the future was gonna find a way for all that to be automated too. LOL
