At my brother's house, every outlet had at least two adaptors, like so many black slithery snakes with silver tails. There are at least two laptops sitting in the dining room and another one floating around the house somewhere else. There's a couple of Razrs, a Blackberry, a Tilt, and landlines. My one niece is on FaceBook, then picks up her phone to answer a text, gets back on the computer for a couple of IMs, intermittently answering my questions and talking to her mom. All without missing a beat.
My other niece was studying for a test, you know, the old fashioned way, with a paper textbook and taking notes in long hand. She was looking up sneakers on the web, checking out the latest fashion at MetroPark and texting some friends to make arrangements to see "Twilight." This it not mentioning the "computer" room that has two flat-screen computers that aren't in use anymore because they're "too slow."
Oh, and somewhere in between there, the younger one upstairs called her older sister on the cell, who was texting/googling/talking live downstairs.
I have to admit that HH and I are still in the 90's technologically speaking. I just got a flat screen and a dvd player just about two months ago. It's an interesting view from behind, looking ahead to today.
