I'd like to talk about new technology ... no, wait, I don't know a thing about new technology, so I better talk about not-so-new technology.
I can't even handle not-so-new technology....
I bought a couple of landline phones last month, unboxed them, plugged them in ... and couldn't get them going. The instruction book is obviously aimed at 6 year olds; I wish I could catch up to their learning capabilities. I couldn't even programme (program?) in the date and time which was point A on page 1 of the instruction book. The phones are back to sitting in the box they came in. What's next for me? Shady Pines Rest Home?
I saw a commercial on tv for a new car. It has a digital screen with all sorts of icons on it. Have I missed out on the fact that nowadays a certificate from NASA is a necessary requirement when out driving, rather than a kiwi license?
Today I have sent for My Computer Guy. My computer problem will, of course, end up being fixed by just the press of a button, and My Computer Guy's bill will be extremely high. Sigh. If I won Lotto, I would definitely hire a live-in Windows 10 expert.
Or ... I guess I could go rob a bank for extra funds, but that's only if I could figure out how to circumvent hidden cameras, trip alarms, invisible light beams , DNA samples, eyeball scanners, and secret codes...
