Technology. Something we take for granted every day here in England, especially in our own homes, but have you ever stopped and wondered how many gadgets and gizmos can actually be found in your house? It might be a simple TV or a fridge full of goodies, snacks and foods, but the bottom line is we Brits can’t get enough of tech made to help us cope with the modern world.
Take the good old TV for example. It’s been around since 1923, but my word has it changed since then! From small black and white screens to gigantic ones in colour, from ridiculously chunky, heavy and ugly TVs to slinky flat screen LEDS and plasmas. TVs have come a long way, they’ve evolved if you like, and let’s face it, without them those early mornings and rainy days would seem unbearable. I guess we ought to be grateful to John Logie Baird, the Scottish inventor of the first working television. He made this dream of moving pictures in a box a reality. I guess all the enhancements along the way have just enabled us humans to take his dream further than he could ever have imagined.
