It seems I am not as hip and happening as I thought I was. Are hip and happening cool words you use nowadays? Who knows???
When we went to Britain we took dh's Apple IPad. I never touch the thing as I prefer my laptop. I did however want to check my emails so logged into GMail and attempted to access my account. To cut a VERY LONG and VERY FRUSTRATING story short, "they" (who ever they are) thought I was trying to hack into my account. I attempted in my sleep deprived state to answer 7 million questions but gave it up as a bad job.
When I got home, not only did I have to reset my email account, it also screwed up my KOBO and my cell phone. In my cell phone's case I had to take it to the store to sort it out as neither me nor dh (who is smart when it comes to smart phones) could fix the problem of me receiving and sending emails with my phone. It took the guy a few minutes of pressing this button and that to get everything working. It turned out I had two icons for the same gmail account, so double emails were coming in and filling up the space on my phone.
The guy did show me how to do a couple of things and told me to come back if I had anymore questions. Honestly though, it all went over my head.
Which comes to texting. I text how I write an email; basically long hand. The only "text word" I have down pat is LOL. The rest is like a foreign language to me. I also used to always add my name to the end of a text, just like you do in a letter. That was until ds pointed out everyone knows it's from you so don't put your name on it? So when I send a text it is usually at least two messages long.
Dh finally MADE me set up a voice mail on my cell phone. As I have pointed out to him I am always forgetting to turn my phone on or charge the battery, so having a voice mail seems pointless to me; but he insisted. I don't even know my cell phone number; who does?
I never hear the bloody phone anyway unless I have the volume turned right up, and then it tweets like a bird which confuses everyone. If I could I would get rid of the phone, but as I am totally useless when it comes to doing anything with the car, at least if I happen to break down when I am out, I can call someone; assuming I managed to remember to charge the battery on the phone or even turn it on???
I have 18 months still left on my phone contract and then I HAVE to get an Apple I Phone as dh has one and is familiar with everything on it. Me, well I couldn't care less one way or another.
How about you?
