Hah – I feel vindicated!

Yes, so I grew up with technology and thought I was quite comfortable with it. That is until the Smartphone arrived. I still am amazed that the computing power of a phone is greater than that of the first computer, which was the size of a first floor in a house!

I had my phone on and it rang. A little phone icon appeared on the screen. So, I “hit” the little phone icon. The phone kept ringing. Next I tried swiping the icon to the right and then to the left. Ack, the phone stopped ringing. I think I set up voicemail, but have no clue as to what password I used. Oh well, they will call back. It turns out for my phone I have to swipe the little icon DOWN. What????? That doesn’t make any sense to me.

But you know now I don’t feel so bad after Mr. Ken showed me a YouTube video of two young men trying to figure out how to make a call from a rotary phone. The funniest part of this is watching them pick up the receiver and then put it down, thinking this would “reset” the phone.

Here is your laugh for the day:
