Technology and Toys
I've been having all kinds of "fun" trying to figure out how to do things that used to be a breeze, and in my humble opinion, didn't need "upgrading" or changing.
But Apple didn't ask me.
And so I struggle with simple things. My address book used to be alphabetized by first name rather than last name. I rather liked that. It worked well with other programs that used the same method. I "know" people by their first names, rather than first and last.
It often takes me three times as long to find someone now compared to the old way. And, yes, there may be a way to change it back, but I haven't yet made the time to find out how.
I thought it might be good for the gray matter to learn a new way of doing a task. So far, it's just aggravated the dickens out of me.
However, there's always a few fun things to play with when you make these types of changes and one of them is a program called Photo Booth®.
See the fun I was missing!?!
Technology is a wonderful part of my life. It makes it possible to play out in cyber space, but upgrades are something I do not look forward to in general....however, if they continue to throw in toys like Photo Booth, I might be more likely to upgrade a little sooner next time!
