As time goes on, I hear from an increasing number of older folks who have given up on trying to keep up with technology. This is understandable as it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed because of how fast it changes. Faster and smaller yet bigger and more functional drive us to either keep up or check out. But before you join the ranks of the techless, think about it what it may cost you. And besides feeling helpless to do some of the most basic tasks, keeping up with technology can be a great way to impress your grandkids and if you don’t know how to do something, you can always ask them. 🙂
Kudos to those who continue to read and learn and grow with the times. Making technology your friend. You will be rewarded. If you haven’t kept up, but want to, go get a virtual assistant like the Alexa Dot (my personal favorite). They cost around $50 but occasional are available on Amazon for $25. If you only use it as a radio, the way most people use it, you’ll have fun with it and you can listen to Life 101.9 anywhere on the planet (as long as you have wi-fi).) And if you really get bored, you can ask it to tell you jokes and she’ll keep you entertained for hours.
By the way, there are other assistants available like Siri, Bixby and Google Assistant and a few others. Learn about them and find out which one is right for you.
Something to think about.
