Sherlock has the science of deduction, and of course is still used as the big skill of Holmes, but in this modern BBC version, because of advancements in technology they can slow down scenes and it allows us to deduct with Sherlock. The changes in technology is the biggest difference in this version of Sherlock compared to older versions.

She also states that handwritten letters are much more important than a text message via email or cell phone. To keep up with the rapidly changing times, email seems to be the preferred method of communication but there is a vast difference between email and handwritten messages. Wiring letters by hand has a very unique and personal touch to it, while an email is just another form of electronic communication that you can only see. The joy of a handwritten letter is palpable.

While written English has always had a role in creating durable records that were never intended to be read aloud, the 'oral' side of writing has been far more important than we tend to realize.

[the desire to] outdo what has been done before.” This type of minor changes of words are a prime example of the effects of text messaging media on the English language. Media with character restrictions have a large impact on the environment of the English language. They have changed the meaning of simple acronyms such as LOL, which the ordinary population employs in day-to-day communication without lending a thought as to where the phrase comes from or what its original meaning is. The effects of text messaging and other media with character restrictions on the English language illustrate change in many areas of verbal communication and literature, and even contribute towards a transformation in a general public attitude. Certain elements, such as acronyms, initialisms, incomplete sentence structure, or the omission of vowels, included in abbreviated messaging technologies (sometimes referred to as “textese”), have contributed to the English language, reflected in the literature and writing skills of the people who use these media.
Most things are made much simpler by just googling and searching for words and stories. I think it changed the way we think, the way we write and the way we read.
