I've never claimed to be a technological genius but I felt like I was doing okay, until recently. A few things lately have put me in my place and left me technologically humbled.
I got a Kindle Fire HD a while back and I was able to do simple things on it like, well, like read a book. I wasn't doing much beyond that until my 10 year old granddaughter took me by the hand and gave me a lesson on all the other things I could do. With the help of a 10 year old, I am now a whiz (well, sort of) at using it for apps, the internet, Facebook, music, and all sorts of fun things. All good to know, but technologically humbling to have to learn from a 10 year old.
Recently I was at my daughter's house and my 5 year old granddaughter wanted to watch a show on Netflix.
When I picked up the remote and started pushing buttons she gave me an exasperated look and told me. "Grandmom, not that remote, this one". She then picked up the correct remote and started pushing buttons. The show she wanted was on the TV faster than I would have been able to find the power button on the remote. Sigh.....technologically humbled by a 5 year old.
It got worse (you knew it would). Another time, recently, I was trying to find a game that my 2 year old grandson wanted to play on his mom's i pad. Yes, you guessed it....I couldn't find the game and he reached over and in a couple of taps on the screen had the game up and ready to play. Double sigh......technologically humbled by a 2 year old.
All I can do is keep learning........in the meantime I think I'll see if I can get one of my grandkids to show me how to do a few of the things I know my phone is supposed to be able to do that I haven't been able to figure out yet.
