I'm old school...I try to remember everything. I have a calander in the kitchen and when I call people I dial the phone from memory. I do have to make notes every once in a while, but I generally don't want my brain to get lazy. lol

plus something the kids these days have not the satisfaction of knowing ....

lol I know there are "mature" members on this board who never built habits out of relying on their phones. Heck, I'm only 26 and even I remember cell-phones being a rarity in school! That's how fast technology progress. Literally the difference in years between siblings can determine what sort of experience they will have growing up! Exciting times we live in...

All of the grandparents, up to at least 70 years old, I know have the latest technologies in smart phones. I don't happen be a grandparent. It's the only way to stay in touch with the family. Once they buy one they get all of the bells and whistles, because they don't have kids at home to support anymore. They've got plenty of time to play with their new toys too. :P

When you think about it, those old phones were tough! There was almost no way to break the dang things.

Prank and obsene phone calls are no more, because if someone really wants to find you they can and will. lol

Or the fact that the need to purchase a new computer isn't as necessary? The computers I have are well up to speed and comfortably meet the requirements of all the new games. Which have actually been evening out in regards to requirements and processing power across the board. More care has been taken to efficient programming as well I have noticed in the latest releases.
