yep it changed much from back then, but it was quite progresive, not such a big change as we supposed it would be back then. Tech still isn't everywhere :p *hides under the bed*

it will change drastically i assure. Especially from the reason we are killing ourselves and beside from that a little rumor going around we going to die in 2012..hehehe
Oh yes and if you research in a 100 years compare to 1908 -2008 you know how big the difference is so 1/5 should still be a drastic changes! EVERYTHING IS BE TURN INTO THEIR MIDGET FORM!!

One thing that will never change much even with the growing technology is AI. At the current level the most sophisticated AI can't even match the thinking of any insect even at the most basic level. Yes I know it can do many stuff but those are preprogrammed and hence do not really count as AI.

I'm just going to point out that AI means "artificial" intelligence. It's a simulation of intelligence, rather than the real thing. Technically, a program that could dynamically take in information and form hypothesis outside of its original programming and data would be displaying true intelligence.

Yes , it will change.
It took so long to even discover electrisity and then use it.
But it all advances way faster now, than it had before.

Like the internet, 20 or so years ago there was no internet..
I think 10 years ago, there wasn't even a gb of hard disk, and those petty few mb, cost a fortune..

in 10 years there will be a big difference by 20 a huge you may not notice the difference because you are living with it at the same time but a lot of things have changed 20 years ago..its hard for me to explain >.<..in example microchips, microchips are a huge break through in technology..and plus in a decade we will be using things that the military is using..i remember i heard that the military is 10 years ahead of the rest of the world..if you get what im trying to say

I don't know since I was born, but my Mother always tells me when she was little the only computers they had were bigger then a regular sized fridge, and only used for storage.


Since I was born, personally, I've seen major changes in the gaming, music, videos, and cell phone industry. I'll skip cell phones, but I will state a few things..

Old handheld Device: Gameboy Color
New One: PsP(or whatever its called) and the DS.
The graphics are MAJORLY Changed.

Videos:
I used purely tapes for the first seven years of my life. When DVDs came out, I remember no one thought they were a good idea. Huh. Look at it now.

Music:
I remember Tapes only breifly, but CDs were around till I was somewhere around 10. XD Now we have Ipods that can store like.. 60KG or whatever they hold.

In 10 years, we will have more in terms of biotechnology. Oh, and cybernetic implants. I wanna be one of the Individual Eleven. Or a Shichibukai, whichever comes my way, not too picky here.

i actually remember reading this year in a cientific journal, that some research institute is developing a robotic arm protesis that could move by sensing the eletric pulses in the area of contact with the skin, there was even a few photos of the tests, it should count as some huge development in technology, dont you think?

Wow, what a question. This will definitely date some folks (as in reveal their age from their response).

I'm personally not that old (yet) but I can already list huge advances in technology. My personal faves, though:

*Computers - Remember dot-matrix printers and Apple IIe's? How about the old 5" floppies that you had to pull out and flip over manually for more storage?

*Cell phones - If you ever see an old episode of "Saved By the Bell" and see Zack Morris bust out his cell phone, you'll probably laugh yourself silly.

*Cameras - Polaroids... 'nuff said. Shaking and blowing a thick piece of plastic and then being amazed as a fuzzy yellowish picture slowly appears? Heh...memories...

*Video Games - The original Gameboy debuted almost exactly 19 years ago (April 21, 1989). Compare to the DS now (and the DS is already 4 years old).

*Television - CRT's have all but become extinct, and everything is going digital by March 2009. I remember my parents used to have an old black and white where you had to wait while it warmed up before seeing a picture, and you had to turn knobs to change channels (VHF and UHF).

*Music - I know vinyls are still kinda popular today, but still. A big black disks with little grooves and bumps that you had to drag a needle across to get sound? Sounds crazy nowadays.

*POGs - A Hawaiian milkcap game where you... (oh wait, this was about technology...got a little off-topic there)

Anyway, technology is definitely still evolving, Moore's Law is still accurate, and I'm still waiting for my flying car like in the old Looney Tune cartoons.

Oh, wow... I couldn't even *begin* to cover the ways technology's changed in my lifetime!

Anyone else remember computer programming on punch cards?!? How about PCs with no hard drive? Imagine a world with no cell phones at all...

Yeah, I'm one of the oldest around here. laugh The longer y'all live, the more changes you'll see, and it's not slowing down a bit.
