Since I yammered about the dislike of the stinkin’ cell phone, I may as well continue with another complaint.
Years ago, I could spell just about anything. In reality, there were words that I couldn’t spell, but I could get close—even ridiculous medical words, such as the names of medication.
Now, I’m always dogged by that squiggly red line under the words I type. I know I make up words, and I expect that red line, but geesh, what happened to my ability to spell? Has spell check sucked that talent from me?
If we can have a machine tell us how to spell, why don’t we have instant healthy meals prepared for us by simply pushing a button? Like they had in the Jetsons cartoon. I could seriously use a Rosie as well.
What I find beautiful about technology is the way it could make my life easier, if I could simply decipher what it is I’m supposed to do.
I found a wonderful app for my iPad to keep me organized. Within a month–or there about–I hope to have a magazine-worthy-house-beautiful.
This morning, I struggled with an attempt to transfer that app to my laptop. I was beginning to feel a bit stupid.
Until I remembered that the iPad is an Apple product—my laptop is not.
I am a bit stoopit at times.
On the other hand, I am being challenged to use my brain, which is always a good thing. Once I figure out all there is to know about technology, then all bets are off in regard to the use of my brain.
However, I won’t have to worry about whether my brain atrophies or not, because my computers will be doing the thinking for me.
