Technology meets people.

My cell phone is a wonderful gadget with so much hidden potential. The truth is, though, I only know how to make calls. I don't even have phone numbers programmed into it! The good news is I have a great memory for numbers so if I've called you once chances are I can remember your number. I guess my phone is a camera too but only by chance have a snapped a shot of my kids when I've managed to hit the "take picture button". I feel as if I'm confessing some embarrassing secret but I just am not a "technically inclined user". Reading a manual is something I won't have time to do until my kids are grown (many, many, years from now) and I get nervous when I start pushing all the different options on my phone. I worry I may never get back to being able to simply dial out or answer calls. Instead, I will be lost in some crazy parallel universe where I can play space invaders while taking photos and downloading info from With all that said, it would be great if cell phones had a program that walked you through all the features. Perhaps a "garmin" like voice could come on and say, "press this to turn your phone to vibrate". Meanwhile, I'm content just to have the phone so I can make my calls and answer calls. Remember a world before we had cell phones??????? Can you believe we all survived our youth without continuous and constant communication with everyone and their Aunt Ida?

Great post! How did we survive? Teenagers today use their phones not only to call each other, but to chat/text each other... sometimes from across the same room!
