The Flying Letdown

As a young child I would often daydream about the conveniences that technology would deliver in the future. Food ready at a moment's notice, video telephones, and flying cars. We've yet to develop the flying car, but the other two are widely available. You can pay a couple dollars and walk away from thousands of fast food places or convenience stores with ready-to-eat food neatly packaged. And most smartphones offer some kind of video talk app. The problem is that now that I have these technologies, I don't like them. Fast food is unhealthy, and I prefer text messaging (with telegraph-like speed) over having to look at a picture of myself on my phone. I hope this doesn't mean that flying cars will also be a bust.
