Often times, people are obsessed with being the first to get access to the shiny, new thing. Apple and other savvy marketers count on this impulsive behaviour in us. In a world of information overload and instant gratification, we live in a community of words per minute and mouse click precision. Online poker players can definitely attest to that.
There are times though where we all reminisce about the good old days – or, even before we were even on this earth, thinking of simpler times where community meant beyond a G+ hangout and everyone would gather at the corner store, neighbour’s porch, or the occasional card game at the saloon..
This infographic sent to me by Casino.org displays a juxtaposed view of the old vs the new, with examples of a great daily winning total (10 silver dollars vs 100,000 on your RFID credit card), dangers (cheating criminals that would want you to draw at a duel in the town square vs a slip of the mouse), and secret weapons (ace up your sleeve vs a dual monitor display for multi-tabbing).
So, whether you’re a millennial of the times or wish you were Doc Brown in BTTF3, there’s something in it for you.
