Or…in the alternative…how we took the leap of faith from Hi-Fi to Wi-Fi.
To be sure, our household has its share of electronic devices and technology toys. However, we tend to pick and choose…and to resist many. A few examples will serve to explain:
We have a cellphone, but it is decidedly not smart
Music, movies, and what used to be called TV are delivered via CD or DVD
Our computer is a one year old desktop (our fourth) with 23 inch monitor
No “I” anything, tablets, notebooks, or laptops
However, modernity does tend to insert itself into our home from time to time. After all, risk is the currency of life.
Recently, the distaff side of our household started musing about possibly buying an e-reader of some kind. After casually, if not surreptitiously, looking at the various offerings, the e-reader urge finally took us to Staples where we settled on and purchased a Kindle.
We brought the proud purchase home and began the usual climb up the learning curve. To put it simply, we of the keyboard & mouse generation were initially puzzled as to how to turn it on. Skipping ahead, there is a very good instruction manual…but it was loaded on the Kindle. Eventually we found the manual online and finally got the unit lit…so to speak.
However, to readily access the finer points in the manual, we (being ancient members of the keyboard & mouse generation) printed off the manual.
Yes, we went to hard copy to learn how to use the e-reader.
Such is irony…
I can report a general satisfaction with the Kindle, although we are still struggling with the finer points of Wi-Fi downloads. 3G works fine in most instances but some sources only use Wi-Fi. Wow! Is that geeky enough for you?
In any event, it is now time to return to reading…”Hey, it’s my turn to use the Kindle!”
