Don’t you love the way technology has made our lives so much easier today? You can always find some aspect of our life that has changed from the way it was done 50, 40, even 20 years ago. And I’m not talking things like computers, MP3 players or mobile phones, but simple things like keeping kids entertained, choosing what to eat and push chairs.
It’s actually push chairs, prams and stollers that got me thinking. I was looking at an advert for a Bob stroller and actually followed the link as “Bob” wasn’t a brand I was aware of. Turns out it’s a “jogging stroller”, again a concept alien to me, but I suppose it may make sense to some people. I’m not a jogger, and if I was one, I don’t think I’d be pushing a pram. But it’s amazing how technology is developed to deal with the specific needs of a certain group of people; or in other words, if there is a market for a product, someone will develop it.
