To do anything with it I need to have a Google account and I haven't made one yet on the phone because I find I don't need it. My phone rings, I answer, I hang it up when I'm done talking.
One of my friends tells me I could download apps for games to play waiting in doctors' offices and I told her, "I have books for that - and not Kindle ones, either."
I don't dislike technology. I love my computer and try to keep up on everything computer related, but I figure I don't have to have every new gadget out there.
I gave away my electric slicer, large bowl Robot Coupe processor, Food Saver, electric knife sharpener, and a few other electronic gadgets. Cooking for one, I no longer need them. Now I have so much more room in my kitchen.
I don't have to have the latest and greatest in electronics. I learned with a wooden spoon and a bowl. And if necessary, I can go back there.
