Everything's Amazing and Nobody's Happy?

Apple (AAPL) really did change the world.

Also last night, my daughter mentioned something in passing about getting a television in her room. When I was a kid that was a big deal. Right up there with getting a phone in your room. My parents could only counter my requests with, "Because we said so." They had nothing other than some handed-down belief that kids with TVs and phones in their rooms before a certain age were spoiled, drunken, premarital sex-having brats.

I shoot my daughter down with one look. A TV and phone in your room? Please. Those days are gone. Again, thanks in large part to Apple.

When I was a kid, I spent my nights under the covers listening to AM radio stations from as far away as I could get them. From Niagara Falls, N.Y., I could listen to Bob Murphy call Mets games on WFAN before "Captain Midnight" Steve Somers took over on the way till 5:30 a.m. and "Imus in the Morning." Or I would pull up Ed Tyll, late nights on WLUP/Chicago, stations as distant as KOA/Denver and other assorted gems. There was always something special about that, but I dreamed of a day -- one I never thought would come -- where I could listen to anything from anywhere around the world at anytime.

I'm not sure which came first, but the now intertwined Sirius XM (SIRI) delivered with satellite radio and individual radio stations started streaming their content live. It didn't sound great at first, but it was better than the reception I would get listening to AM signals hundreds and thousands of miles far flung.

Now, through any number of apps -- Clear Channel Media Holdings (CCMO) iHeart Radio, TuneIn Radio and individual station sites -- I can listen to practically every radio station in the world. And then there's Pandora (P) transforming radio into this beautiful personalized experienced with quite a few worthy copycats doing everything from discovery to on-demand.

I'm not quite sure how anybody can exist in this world, adopt and use its many technological luxuries and not be in awe. I don't care about happy, but you'd better be in awe.
