For the last four hours, I've been hurtling down the highway at an average speed of 74 MPH, in the passenger seat of a hybrid electric vehicle.

I'm using a laptop that costs less than $100 and has 10+ hours of battery life , connected to the internet through a magical slab of glass I call a phone.

That laptop has an RDP connection to my office desktop, which has a VPN connection to a client network, which enables me to RDP to their system across the globe.

I haven't seen a power outlet in 8 hours.

The future is weird.

(Most of my job is just sending emails and IMing with people. I can do a surprisingly large amount of my job with little more than a chromebook and a slow cellular internet connection.
