My new nephew!

I figured out how to download this picture that my brother took with his cellphone camera:

I just realized that none of that stuff existed until about ten years ago. Think about it: My sister in law had a premature baby (who's still doing great), my brother takes a picture using the camera in his cellphone, and SMS messages a copy of it to my cellphone, which I then download to my computer using Bluetooth and share with all of you. Not long ago, I wouldn't have had a picture of him unless my brother took a picture, had it developed, made prints and mailed it via USPS to me. That's if the kid even survived.

EDIT: And that's if I survived my stroke to receive it.
