When I arose this morning there were three bits of new technology for me to learn. I like technology. It is new and different and something to learn and then get pleasure from.....well sometimes.
I tackled the easiest first, the new electric toothbrush that does not have rechargeable AA batteries but charges by osmosis. I actually plugged it in last night and when I woke this morning and saw a blue light flash in my bathroom, for split second I thought my bathroom was on fire. Toothbrush was pretty easy.
Tackle the camera. Same brand, Canon, as the old one but half the size, but twice the display screen size. The controls are different but similar, so I found my way around that ok. R bought a 1gb card to go with it. I wonder how long the battery will last before needing a charge? Less than four AA's I reckon.
But the Ipod Shuffle, well I plugged it into the USB port to charge up, but then today I read that it won't charge when the hard drive is asleep. Contrary to popular belief, my hard drive does spend some time asleep.
I know this Ipod Shuttley thing going to be a troublesome critter. So as the pc is going to be upgraded this week, I have decided that there is not much point going online to get the Ipod software until we have the renovated pc. I hate white earpieces, oh, the modern lingo is 'buds'?, wonder if my black walkman ones will work.
