Watch Out! Learning Curve Ahead


 In the battle between Apple and PC, I landed on the PC side decades ago.  Now, I've used and owned both PCs and Apple Macs back in the 80s and 90s and it was tedious switching between the two.  So, when I received this Ipad for Christmas this year, I was a bit unsure how long it was going to take before it would actually become useful to me. Well, I'm not ready to throw out my little Dell, but today, I learned how to download the user guide from ibooks, so I'm zooming right along now.  Happily, I find the differences between Android and IOS (operating systems) aren't as great as the differences between the old MS and IOS used to be. Huzzah! The best thing is Facetim-ing with our daughter and son. That's the BEST and well worth the learning curve!!!

So, now I own 2 tablets, 2 laptops, and a really old desktop (for my embroidery module)....plus my phone.  That's just my pile of lithium; I won't mention Lee's stash.  In my defense though, I've been thinking that this little Dell, on which I'm typing, soon will be going to Electronics Heaven (but it keeps chugging along like a champ....a wounded champ, but a champ nonetheless)  Regardless, I've been backing it up religiously and trying to download (upload) data to my 2nd laptop that my hubby refurbished for me a couple of months ago.  But now, with this new Apple-child/toy in my life, my switch-over efforts have come to a grinding halt.  Next week though.....I keep promising myself......next week I'll get back to it.  Yep, it'll happen.

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that 2018 will bring you Joy and Prosperity!  God Bless and stay safe tonight....CHEERS!
