I could imagine long distance driving in an entirely different light. Audio books, games, stories, movies. Our little lives could change so much! So my brother in law found me an iPod Touch for $90 on craigslist and I was up and running.
Except for this one small little hiccup. -- I don't get it. The stupid little machine is practically it's own Artificial Intelligence and sometimes I don't get it.
Take for example the process by which you convert a DVD over to a iPod readable file. I have to pass through so many different languages to get the iPod to understand me that I honestly am not sure what I'm doing.
My poor brother in law had no idea what he was getting himself into when he handed over that sleek silver device. Now whenever he comes over (and sometimes when he's not here) I pepper him with questions.
"If the file is 4G big then I don't want it on my iPod." I say.
"It shouldn't be that big, what program are you using?"
I feel 80. I feel like Vicbowin was right when she asked me if I was born before the wheel was invented.
Technology is going so fast that I can barely keep up. I bet I only scratch the surface of things that are possible. I bet I'm only licking the frosting and missing the cake underneath.
I'm starting to see how my kids will surpass me.
