Technology + or –

Reflecting on my most recent technology snafu this question rose:

If you don’t know how to use something, what good is it?

Technology is moving so fast one needs to be a computer scientist to use it. Instructions are computer driven or written by “those in the know,” lack insight to what actual people can understand.

For me challenges occur in attempts to make a phone call. Robocall, ha, ha, I lack the ability to answer. Then there is the contact, does anyone truly know how to save one of these? Well, maybe a 6 year old does. I must get one of those. 🙂

Next concern:

Where do you go for help? And if found will they intimidate or bite your head off?

Computer Directions: Sort of like ubiquitous graffiti found worldwide.

Such a travesty to have something out there you cannot access which is to provide assistance and make life more manageable.

Oh no, I just lost all my pictures again. Shall I laugh or throw the phone against me wall?

I think it’s time to shut it off, have a glass of Merlot, take a walk, and let the gnomes inside the machine do their magic. It worked the last time and the pictures reappeared. Go figure?.

My New I Phone

I am in love. I have purchased a much too expensive I phone which I trust will keep me through the next 3 to 5 years or that is what the salesman told me. It is modern and I feel hip.

While I no longer have a case, I have an ultramodern semi glass covering as protection for the mere cost of $49.95, besides the $399. for the phone. Do the Math. I have a headache considering the cost.

While this was an expense in the long run it was worth it as I received extremely good service. The salesperson mounted everything into the phone and answered questions calmly and politely. I have been back to the store since our initial contact and he continued to help.

I am now as everyone calls it “playing” with the phone. While a foreign concept to me it seems to be working as I have figured things out in my play. Weird. If only I could figure out how to recapture and forward pictures. Stay tuned. Sorry, no pictures today.
