In my lifetime I have come to celebrate modern technology for so many reasons, from the remote control that means that I can remain seated and relaxed whilst changing channels, to the brilliant automatic washing machines that ensure that I, unlike my grandmothers, never have to dedicate a whole day to 'the laundry' but the convenience at the top of my list has to be...
