New Computers Can Be A Challenge
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to let go of my old desktop computer, you know, the one that had the Vista operating system, hardly any hard drive space, and memory, well forget it, the mind was almost blank if you know what I mean.
I decided to buy a new computer, with lots of bells and whistles.
It’s amazing what you can buy these days for so much less than it used to cost.
Years ago, I spend upwards of 1500 dollars for a laptop that couldn’t even begin to compete with the laptops of today for a quarter of the price.
So the new toy arrived today, and as is with any new electronic item, I get excited.
Qucikly the box is torn open and set up is about to begin.
The computer is just flying through it’s steps, asking me questions I’m not sure I should be answering, but I do anyway.
After the setup is complete, I stare at the new operating system – one that I am not familiar with, and that’s when I start to feel old.
I’m clicking on icons that I have no idea what they are or do, and even after they open, not sure what the hell it is.
I love new technology, but it changes so much, sometimes it can become overwelming.
After a couple of hours though, I kind of understand where most things are located, and how to use new features I’ve never seen before, but there’s more to learn, and I guess time will work it all out.
Of course, by the time I figure out all that’s new on this desktop computer, the industry will have deemed it ancient, having come out with new products that leave this one in the dust.
