    In 1983 (30 years ago) we had yet to witness:

    Internet, broadband, WWW (browser and html)
    PC/laptop computers
    Mobile phones
    E-mail
    DNA testing and sequencing/Human genome mapping
    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
    Microprocessors
    Fiber optics
    Office software (spreadsheets, word processors)
    Non-invasive laser/robotic surgery (laparoscopy)
    Open source software and services (e.g., Linux, Wikipedia)
    Light emitting diodes
    Liquid crystal display (LCD)
    GPS systems
    Online shopping/ecommerce/auctions (e.g., eBay)
    Media file compression (jpeg, mpeg, mp3)
    Microfinance
    Photovoltaic Solar Energy
    Large scale wind turbines
    Social networking via the Internet
    Graphic user interface (GUI)
    Digital photography/videography
    RFID and applications (e.g., EZ Pass)
    Genetically modified plants
    Bio fuels
    Bar codes and scanners
    ATMs
    Stents
    SRAM flash memory
    Anti retroviral treatment for AIDS

    To openly admit you do not wish to see a change in how you illuminate your home for another 30 years is doing a disservice to yourself.

    We've been spelling it wrong all these years. It's actually: PRO-GOP-ANDA
