My youngest Son has just purchased for me a “Smartphone”, that word alone terrifies me. I am just about getting used to using a computer let alone this “Smartphone”. David tried to explain it all to me and said “play around with it,you can’t break it, just play with it and you will get used to it”. Just looking at it frightens me, there is so much information on it I honestly do not think I will be able to get used to it.
Born 1949 I am not of the new technology era, it comes so easy to my Sons but for me I just go blank when I am confronted with all these new things. Having just got used to a basic mobile phone which I was given to keep in touch with home when I go on my visits to London, how on earth can I cope with this “Smartphone”. My youngest Son gave me my own computer for my Bedroom but once it went off I had no idea how to put it on so I prefer to use my Son’s PC that’s switched on all the time. Mind you when something does go wrong and that is quite often because I end up doing something wrong and I can then be heard shouting for HELP.
Life was so much simpler all those years ago but of course one has to be honest and say if the computer was not here now I certainly would miss it, for me the World has opened up. I have met some really lovely people I would miss terribly. In fact I am becoming obsessed with the computer, as soon as I come down in the morning the first thing I do is look at my emails. I seem to spend so much time on the computer. David tells me I can have the “smartphone” in the kitchen with me and look at my emails there, that’s if I ever get used to this “SMARTPHONE”, the one looking at it I doubt is very smart!!
