technology

I used to find it so funny to see parents that are so incapable of using electronics. Face it we have all had the teacher that needs the student to turn on the TV, put in a DVD, use the projector etc. I know my parents were decent at using the Internet and when I say decent I mean capable of using e-mail, google, and the everyday needs. My husbands family on the other hand is technology handicapped. It was like a three hour process trying to walk him through the steps on how to set up an e-mail account. It is crazy never using online banking or search engine websites. Text messaging for them is basically like rocket science for them. Well I feel like I am beginning to relate. I find myself knowing less and less with all this new programs and inventions. When we talked in class about web 2.0 and all the applications on google it was a little over my head. I was fascinated and understood the concept but it was a little complex for me. I think with all the access we have now we need to keep up at a rapid pace because everything new is already going out of date. Technology is a wonderful tool that has helped immensly but I swear I am starting to need those books that are titled something like technology for dummies.

Somone once told me that buy the time some new techonology is reported, it's already old news and outdated. Take a pc for example. I'm amazed at what I thought mine could do, until I realized just a few months later what the news ones can do. Technology, it's the race to bigges and better new things to bring in some money!
