Saturday’s Conspiracy Theory

Don’t you just love technology? Me neither. I am frequently appreciative of computers, the internet and all that is possible because of them. But when they don’t work, I feel like throwing the thing across the room. Well, that may be an exaggeration, I’m not prone to violence, even against a machine. But Friday was […]

Technology Shock

It was the size that caught my attention. Do you notice these things? I was installing a new app for my phone, to better manage one of the loyalty programs I belong to. I gave the usual permissions and the download started. I noted it was 31.5 megabytes. That jogged my memory. Back in 1990 […]

So You Think I Can Dance?

Computers baffle me at times. I’m not ashamed to admit that. At least I am assuming it is a computer that baffles me, I would hate to think it is a human that has me puzzled in this case. It’s about a job, one that apparently someone, or more likely some machine, thinks I am […]
