Technology has come a long way over the years. So much so that newer generations would never understand some of the growing pains.

Any one remember waiting until you went to bed to download upgrades as it would take hours and hours? or how about if someone called just as that download was about finished and you had to start all over?

What Technology or growing pains would the current generation just not understand?
