I love technology when it works, but these days "when it works" is getting to mean "when it works together" a lot more often. Every network has a different protocol, every mobile has a different operating system, everything wireless works on a different frequency and all data is in incompatible formats. Getting two pieces of technology to work together is becoming more of a challenge every day, which either means we are trying to do more difficult things with it or that standards are advancing too rapidly to keep up.

PS - I think it's a bit of both.
PPS - We can't let it go too far, or nothing will work with anything else any more.
