These days people can talk on a phone that is the size of a credit card. On this said phone, they can also check their email, look up travel times, google who first came up with the rules of the road, and anything else their little heart desires. The technology of a cell phone has been around for about a decade. Cell phones with computers on them are relatively new, but people still rely on them for so many things.
Here is what I don't understand: If we can put so much information into a tiny little phone and it actually works then why oh why can't manufacturers make a water heater that lasts longer than six months? That's right, I am about to buy a new water heater because my 6 month old water heater already broke. If Apple and Microsoft can do so many awesome things with technology, why are water heater manufacturers having such a hard time making a product that works? Especially since water heaters are not new technology! I just don't understand.
