(Editor’s Note: I picked up progressive bifocals yesterday and my head is killing me!! It doesn’t seem like I am having a hard time adjusting to the new lenses but my head sure hurts. Did you get headaches with bifocals? P.S. I am officially old. )
A mom friend posted on Facebook that the dryers in her daughter’s dorm at Arizona State University will TEXT you when your load of clothes is done! I just think that’s the craziest thing. How smart and easy for the students. No more sitting around killing time in a stinky basement waiting on your clothes so no one removes them before they are done.
A student of mine reports that there are no keys for her apartment at all – everything is done with a swipe card. Need to get into your apartment, swipe the card. Need to go to the gym, swipe the card. Front gate – swipe the card.
Another student was telling me how they hook up their computers to the TV so bye-bye to cable bills.
I am wondering what other amazing changes technology has provided in dorms, dining halls and apartments? What are your kids seeing? How is technology making their lives easier?
