I'm still shocked at how ubiquitous cell/mobile phones have become. It seems to me it was barely yesterday that a good friend of mine was showing off his new bag-phone, which was a rare luxury item.

Which of course drags us into the question of whether technology alone would have prevented S&A from being the story it is. Night sailing to capture Amazon wouldn't have been so duffer-ish with a GPS-enabled phone. The storm wouldn't have been such a surprise with a weather ap. What sort of tension would there have been with that instant umbilical of security back to Mother at Holly Howe?

Different stories of a different era; for better or for worse --and I won't make any attempt at *that* assessment!-- impossible to replicate.
