Re: Word wrap!
Brian raised a point here. Where would we be without Google search? Google was single handedly responsible for a huge bump in number of people who used the internet. Earlier people weren't a fan of it because it was too complicated.

Re: Word wrap!
I love the fact that there is a Word Processor in existence now, but I'm not really a fan of MS word. In fact I find it too complicated and cluttered with too many variables. It is really hard to delete a blank page and merge documents having different formatting!

Duct tape without a doubt is a life saver. After that is Frog tape for painting :-)

Re: Word wrap!
Microsoft Word 97, copy-paste, and it seemed that magically the universe had more resource than at the start.

Google search would be another technology that has changed the lives of everyone. An individual can have a educational degree in a specific science but, they can still manage to lookup expert information concerning a completely different area of science.

Re: Word wrap!
I'm thankfull  for the word processor. I remember my father buying me an electric type writer.  If I made a mistake, I had to use white out to cover it, then type it over to make it look nice.  Finally, try to align it again on the type writer.  There was no grammar or spell checker, you mistype, you had a lot of work cut out for you.

Word wrap!
@Esther: The word wrap story is hilarious. I'm sure many people can relate to it. I never had such an experience. So I'm not as thankful!
