It can be cliche, but it’s oh so true.  It’s becoming more and more commonplace for reality to become fiction.  Witness the props of STAR TREK, or the futuristic inventions imagined by H.G. Wells.  The latest example comes from none other than Ray Bradbury, arguably one of the finest Science Fiction writers to date. It […]

It was listening to this weekend’s podcast that got me thinking about technology.. Well not really technology as a whole but the commercial I saw a few weeks ago that has been on my mind ever since.
