They're coming in by train. So I went to the Amtrak website and checked their arrival time - it's a little late, which happens coming through the plains.
I can still remember working with the Pentium 386, and when a friend tried to tell me about the internet, all I could ask was "What's that?" Now I'm using my computer to check the arrival time of a train.
Simple, you ask? It wasn't that simple years ago. Heck, there are generations of kids who never knew a world without computers making things easier or simpler.
What's a task that you now take for granted on a computer?
