The first version of most inventions that make life easier inevitably becomes outdated.

Remember the first time the iPhone revolutionized the way people interacted and communicated with one another around the world?

Who knew then that Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max would be a far superior version of the communication device offered by the manufacturer a decade and a half later?

Maclaine had some good luck herself that night, as a Hollywood talent scout happened to be in the audience.
