    Game changer......Invention, Innovation or what?

    What was your game changer?

    Simple, complex, grand, world beating, hi-tech, lo-tech, parochial, international, corporate or what..........

    One amongst many...........

    The wheeled suitcase - and then the icing on the cake - the spinner case.

    What's yours?

    The digital camera or camera phone. I shudder to think of the amount of film I wasted one way or another.
    Logic will get you from A to B.
    Imagination will take you everywhere.

      You're not wrong about wasting film.........

      I went to an exhibition many years ago of the Paisley Photographic Society - second oldest in the UK. The images were spectacular and I asked one member about his images and he told me he expected to get only one possibly two good images from a 36 exposure film - and regularly none. I was crestfallen - I expected to join and suddenly have great images every time.

      I did join and with guidance my hit rate did improve - but recently it has all been about 'record' shots on holiday. Kiss of death for a photographer to hear a judge describe their photograph as a record shot by the way.

        Cashless payment.....living in a village with just one, which at best could be called temperamental, cash point I was always short of cash. So many times had to drive round to find a cash point and often had to pay to take out my own money.
        Concur with digital photography, many times had rolls of film developed and ended with them all going in the bin. Or would try different settings to get a better shot, then if I did get a great picture could never remember what settings I had used

          Considering just over 65 years ago I started work in an accounts dept where everything was done manually, this led me 15 years later to selling mechanical accounting machines for a living. The main manufacturer at the time being NCR (National Cash Register) although the one I sold was a German manufactured machine by a company called Optimatic,

          Think the biggest game changer for me has to be high tech the Computer, especially towards the end of my working career, when part of my job involved the daily auditing of the company accounts. On a more personal level the tablet and phone, also concur about digital photography.

            My android smart phone which from a holiday or cruise point of view means I can leave 'stuff' at home.

            It's my camera, my maps, it has a couple of games, I can check the weather and order an Uber and book a table for lunch or dinner. I can check the news if I wish and of course my social media and email. When I think of the chunky desktops we used to have with processors that weighed a ton and the fat back monitor.

            What I really love is the photo editing I can do and the quality is far superior to my digital camera which I would need a pc to be able to do the editing. I've also got some lovely photo books that I've created online of some of our best holidays.

              Definitely the computer for me.

              I first became interested in what a computer could offer probably about 30 years ago. Thanks to a website called Friends United (now defunct), I was able to trace lots of school friends when I was trying to organise a school reunion.

              Since then of course, I use my laptop all the time for just about everything. Shopping, banking, research, news, weather forecast, forums, Facebook etc.

                      My spice grinder and food processor.

                      I love making curries and I like using the grinder to grind all the spices fresh. The processor is great for pulverising everything and making pastes of fresh ginger, garlic, herbs and spices. Yum!

                      I wouldn't want to be without these kitchen essentials.

                          Ohh I do miss that - last three cars had that but current one its not offered by the manufacturer.

                          Oh well, at least I still have heated seats and mirrors.

                            Hi JC

                            My car does have that, but I am not out early enough to need it.

                            By time I am up and out, windscreen has thawed out 🤣👍😎

                              All just fripperies and toys for boys ( and girls).

                              My game changer is my artificial hip replacement.
                              It helped to continue my working life and from day one took away the pain I'd suffered for many years...
