I know my iPad does the same thing: it insists on"correcting" me and drives me batty.

Most modern technology is good, it makes life easier and you can get things done quicker. The one thing I hate is the automated phone system you get when you call just about any business. It wastes your time and your phone minutes and leaves you just plain mad.

the thing I about Facebook is when people post their vacation pictures on it. Since I'm in a wheelchair I can't get around good and seeing pictures of people's vacations etc. seems like they're saying "HA HA! We can go there and you can't!"

I have to say that for being as relatively young as I am, I'm kind of slow at adapting to the new technology. I still use VHS once in a while, and I have never joined any social media. I have mostly stopped using my old audio casettes though. Those were the good old days, when I had to use an old-fashioned walkman to listen to music on my walks...

I finally got my own Ipad for my birthday back in June. Nevertheless though, I still prefer to use my stationary computer. And yeah, I too just hate how the dumb Ipad will auto-correct me. It will even randomly change a lot of English words into Swedish words!

Sorry to hear that...with me, I have no car so I really can't go anywhere and my work seems to tie me down. I also don't have much money so it's like I'm kinda shut-in.

And cellphones are really practical,having access to a phone wherever you are ,esp.in emergency or dangerous situations, it's great to be able to call for help at your finger tips!
Yeah, at one time I was pursuing a job in advertising/public relations and watching shows like Bewitched or Mad Men about this industry shows how different it was. Granted there was a lot of sexism but there were jobs. Now with the internet one person can do the job of several people. People blame outsourcing for the loss of jobs (and it is a huge factor)but people fail to realize that technology means a job duty that used to take a week can be done in a day or even an hour.

Regarding social media, in the last month I have lost close to 10 FB friends. A couple may have just unfriended because they were "cleaning house" but others I know it was based on their idolizing Trump and me not. Common sense would be to say that our views are different, but no they decided my views were wrong. They would even start Trump comments on topics unrelated to him (like me going back to school) then get mad because I deleted the post. Sorry, but not everything is political and some are making it that that. My neighbor even blocked me and no idea why she did. I think she is mad because I made a comment about the local mom's group making comments about me. I have been the victim of cyber bullying and stalking too. With cyber bullying, I had an instance where it carried over to real life and people mad because on FB I stated I only date the childfree. I was confronted about this. I had guys who found me from dating sites on Facebook because I had some of the same photos (now deleted). One guy kept trying to friend me, then when I rejected him was trying to send me messages.

Having said that, the internet has done some good things. For instance my next semester is 12 credits online. The reason is because most of them conflict with other things I do so it was either online or not at all. FB is good with connecting with my high school classmates I haven't seen in 20 years. It's even opened some jobs to me that I do on a freelance basis.

As far as the Trump stuff one has got nothing to do with the other. It shouldn't matter if you like Trump or not.

I also hate my tablet having to collapse the keyboard app.

I'll write something down on Facebook and then...the keyboard part will collapse while I'm typing! VERY annoying!

I agree and disagree. We are losing more freedoms,Liberties with technology, but as was already said, "Things that used to take days to do, or even weeks, can be done in hours now. I have connected to people I never thought I would hear from again from my past on Facebook, so that's been a friend in itself. Back in the day, big movie studios couldn't do with their million dollar camera's and technology nearly as much as we can do with a simple 99 dollar smartphone camera today. Imagine taking a Galaxy S7 back in time to the 70s, and rubbing it in NASA'a face, lol. That is if you could do it without getting it confiscated by the government. But in the 1970s, we didn't have the problem of Identity theft like we do today, that I believe started with the internet, unless you count the Great Ferdinand Waldo Demara.

The problem with my tablet (well, one of them anyway) is that I get pains in my arm, if I use it too much while lying down. Sigh... But I just came up with a great idea: plugging in the tablet to my stationary computer's loudspeakers, so I can listen to music at a good sound quality.
