My name is Laurie and I am a Luddite. I have had so much new technology thrown at me lately that I just want to dress up like Laura Ingalls Wilder and live in a log cabin. I am overwhelmed. This is what I got yesterday, at the urging of Polly and my nieces who think I can use it. We'll see. I do love the fact that I can see emails while not at the computer. Bill will probably like it too, since I won't have to kick him off the computer on a regular basis to "check the emails." I guess this is what progress looks like. I am sceptical since I recently upgraded my Firefox on the computer and I am having to relearn just about everything. Oy!
Of course, the phone will do MUCH more than just allow me to read emails, but at the risk of getting an advanced degree - I will just ignore those options at the moment.
My nieces think it is hysterical that I don't know how to text. Maybe I will tell them about that skill I learned in school many years ago called "shorthand". Maybe I will also tell them about a job I had many years ago in a brokerage firm. They needed women to use these new fangled things called computers, to type in orders. It seems that the stock brokers, most of whom were men, did not know how to type. Yes, the world keeps on changing.
