When I moved to the U.S. two years ago, I was amazed at how technologically slow the U.S. was. Of course, I cannot speak generally because the Internet itself was created in the United States and it is not a fair comparison since Korea is such a tiny country, but nonetheless, most technology trends were at least a couple years behind.
Coming to Portugal for a conference, however, I feel even more frustrated. I cannot Tweet with my cell phone because my cell phone provider doesn’t have automatic global roaming service. Thank goodness I have a sturdy analog watch to tell the time. Internet connection is not only expensive, but extremely slow, especially when it comes to uploading. I’ll have to wait until I go to Korea in a couple years to upload my travel photos to Flickr.
Thank goodness I downloaded Plants vs. Zombies; it’s something I can play without Internet connection.
