There are those odd moments when you stop and realize how magical technology has become. I was sipping tea next to the KLCC musical fountain and a very sort-of-metal meets violin fusion song came on the loud speakers. I reflexively reached out to my smartphone, fired up Soundhound, hit "Listen" saw the artist/song pop up on my screen, and saved it to Evernote with 2 taps and then in hit me. What I did in those 30 odd seconds would have been unimaginable a couple of decades ago(especially without asking anyone).
I mean yeah, we never got Hoverboards or power laces and we still don't have a moon colony or spinning space stations with simulated gravity, but hey, sometimes you gotta find your "I'm living the future" fix in the little things.
