2004 Tablet PC Technology – How Far Have We Come?

The next time we are quick to complain about computer performance, size, weight and so-on it would be good to grasp a hold on where we really are technologically.  As we are running between holiday parties and the year of 2004 comes to a close, let’s take a fun look at where we have arrived!  I am personally guilty of wanting more.  I always want smaller and more powerful devices, longer battery life –  A Tablet PC that recognizes every scribble, stays nice and cool in my arm – runs for 8 hours straight without threat of a low battery warning.  When I think about it, what do I really have in front of me when I power up my Tablet PC?  A true miracle?  Or just some lead brick that needs more improvement?  To put it all into perspective, please take a quick look at where we were 150,000 years ago – 50 years ago – 5 years ago and today.

As we move on to 2005, let’s think how far we have come!  It is apparent that the gentleman in the 1954 photo could never have even in his wildest dreams imagined where we have really gone 50 years later.  As the year comes to a close and you are making new technology purchases or opening up new presents suited for technophiles be sure to think of the scientific miracle that is placed before you!
