I've always found that the only dumb questions were those asked by really dumb people.

Stupid is forever. Ignorance can be fixed.

This reminds me of college. The further I went in college, the more I realized I didn't know.

I know what you mean about today's technology taking off like it is. Just about the time you almost figure something out, it changes.

I guess we're all most comfortable with the technology we grew up with.

My 4 YO grandson has no problem picking up my cell phone and takng pictures with it. Today, while talking to SO on my cell, he calmly switched it to speaker phone and set it on the counter while continuing the conversation.

Actually James and I are both pretty technology savvy, but I can assure you neither of us will ever be in any danger of wearing our thumbs out texting. We both know how to text, but it is a long, arduous process!

Me too. I still get hung up on proper capitalization, punctuation and proper English so texting makes me crazy.

I have the same hang-up. I don't like all lowercase (or all uppercase), and I am not a big fan of abbreviations, so that makes texting more challenging! And don't get me started on punctuation!

My phone has predictive typing, so it would take me longer to type abbreviations, than just spell it out.

Just trying to type " ' em" instead of "them" and getting "Em" for a half hour, I gave up arguing. They have minds of their own.
