Technology … A humbling experience

I tend to wonder why we have computers, “Smart Phones” Robots and the like. Surely it is not to make our lives simpler or more convenient. Smart Phones (droids, and the like) use up more battery and available space quicker than a land line, and you have to carry them everywhere so you can send garbled messages with symbols and abbreviated words so others can find you all the time and call you no matter what time it is or where you are. Then you have your computers. You spend more money every time the big companies (M.S./Apple etc.) decides to upgrade even when what you are using is fine and the next step up is crap! Then you have to go in and do a “De-frag” and “Disk clean up” sometimes having to send the computer back to its original state several weeks/months before you started this because some program or other decided it was not compatible to the program you have on the computer or your laptop/desktop/smartpad gets a virus and needs kicks off your printer or other hardware you need to get your work out on time.  And don’t get me started on all the constant adding to passwords to where you can’t recall what it was because there are so many numbers symbols and letters so only hackers can get onto your sites! Now they want you to give a cell phone number for “added security” even if you don’t have one! If I could chuck it all and not need all this tech in order to do my work, make my orders and post here to the amusement of others whom (I heartily believe) Understand where I am coming from with all this, I would be a happier, saner and more relaxed person! Yeah, it took me over 6 hours to reinstall the printer program again with all the error messages and the like. As I said, a HUMBLING experience.HP-Pavilion-laptops
