Technological Advancement

Sometimes we get so used to something that we forget what life was like before. Take computer mice. Remember when the only kind had that ball in the bottom, and you had to open it up all the time to scrape the crud off the rollers? Ah, the good old days.

Now that we have advanced optical mice, we don't have to clean our "mouse balls" any more. Nope, now all we have to do is turn them over every so often and scrape the crud off the low-friction pads.

Ah, technology.
