So…about a week ago, I got this phone.
It's like having a Furby...remember those?
It won't be quiet when I want it to, it gives notice of everything.
I have no idea where the batteries are; or anything, …you know?
Not sure how I feel about that.
Like everything, you have to learn to use it,right? But it helps to know the lingo.
There are new words coming into my vocabulary now, ...almost exponentially.
I would never put the pronoun “I” ---before, an object, that already has a name.
Why is my phone now an iphone? Why are tunes, now…iTunes? Why ‘iCloud’ for global storage place in the wild blue yonder? Why a cloud at all? But, now… I own an iphone?
IT’S NOT EVEN THE NEWEST iPhone!
I told my brother I didn’t have google + on my phone. He insisted I did. After we got off the phone, I pushed the button…and at my command, I was off to the istore?
No. It’s an App-store.
I hardly ever…almost NEVER. used the word ‘APP’ for anything.
I would say …application, as in “I must fill out this application,first.”
Or, I would say, applicator or apply, as in “I use the applicator to apply my mascara.”
I gave my brother this explanation ,as to why “APP”. He is much more knowledgeable than myself about these things. He listened intently, WITHOUT INTERRUPTING; and He never corrected me.
Now, I’m wondering if he was just being nice OR he didn’t want to hurt my feelings by telling me---
I was putting too much thought into all this; and “app” is just short for apple?
So, I went there and downloaded an APP for Google Hangouts… BECAUSE WE WERE ALL OUT OF HANGOUTS.
Hangouts? you say. Why, you have Facetime? That is because…not everyone has Facetime. Some people have a smart phone…called an Android and apparently, it comes with google + and you can Hangout on there and see each other when your talking. Rather, than having FACE TIME.
Both the same. (I know, I’ll probably get hate mail for that one.)
So,...I tried it. That isn’t what- it’s- all -about. I’m fairly certain…with either APP
… it is the NOSE HAIR DETECTION APP.
It is not for the squeamish…I can tell you that.
My daughter told me to box “it up and send it back.”
Then, I wondered… if she’d know how to use a KEY on a pair of VINTAGE roller-skates?
Would SHE box them up, and take them back to the store? Wool Worth’s , Montgomery Wards…OR THE ROLLER SKATE STORE?
Would she fumble around with them; UNTIL THEY WERE SUFFICIENTLY APPlied TO HER TENNIES …
and try to skate with them anyway?
That is how I felt this week.
Like I was Fumbling around on an new pair of roller-skates
…AND LEARNING FURBISH.
