Then and Now: Images That Reflect Just How Much the Times Have Changed

Time has never stood still.   But when Randy Crawford sang in the 80s, “Everything must change. Nothing stays the same …” the world was still largely unprepared for how swiftly technology would begin to move forward.    

It would seem in just a few short years, the world moved from cassettes to compact discs (CDs) and CDs to mp3 players and digital music.  For many, the laptop has replaced television for watching films and video content, and we won’t mention the inevitable obsolescence of DVDs and Blu-rays.

Undoubtedly technology has changed the world as we know it, and these ten images demonstrate just how much!

Even cats have changed their choice of entertainment!

Movie production has gone digital

A hard drive can now fit in your pocket

A beautiful landscape is now only the backdrop of a ‘selfie’

The way we spend our time outdoors is, well, different

All sorts of games – from cards to playing tennis – have become virtual

And there has been a revolution in how we define friendship

Computer games really really don’t look the same

Remember when mobile phones had more than one button?

It would seem that cats were the first to get the memo that life would never be the same!
