Thursday 13 - Technologically Speaking
This post is late because I spent the morning getting a new cell phone in Dante's first level of hell - otherwise known as the Vrzn store. During the waiting process I determined that I have a love/hate relationship with technology...
I love that I can call my friend in Kazakhstan on the phone and talk to her like she is just across town.
I hate getting a new cell phone and trying to figure it all out - again!
I love that my new phone has a QWERTY keyboard.
I hate that you lose your ringtones when you switch phones just so they can charge you for them yet again.
I love that the inside screen lets me do a slide show for wallpaper so I can have photos of all the grandbabies.
I hate that the screen on the outside is so tiny that the time covers up most of any picture you put on there- I wasn't willing to pay the $30 more for a screen that was larger by half an inch.
I love DVD's so you don't have to worry about the "tape" breaking or stretching if you play the same movie over and over.
I hate myriad of remotes required to operate the TV, DVD player, surround sound, and Dish.
I love my digital camera that lets me know immediately if the picture is good, doesn't waste film, and lets me easily share my photos with you.
I hate the rate at which said camera goes through batteries. (Yes, I have rechargables which seem to run down at the same rate whether they are in the camera or out of it. So much for carrying backup batteries.)
I love Facebook and connecting with old friends and getting a message from a boy (man) who remembered me as his first kiss in 4th grade!
I hate feeling like I have to check Facebook regularly because no one under 40 will pick up the phone to call and tell you something - they just post it.
I LOVE that I can have a blog and share what's on my mind and in my world and also learn about you and yours.
