Is It Just Me?

Is it just me or is technology getting so advanced that it’s challenging just understanding the basics? No matter how difficult the equipment may be to use, we are brainwashed to think that we need the newest model that comes to the market. The commercials and ads make them sound as if we can’t live without them. And they seem to be so easy to use. Just click here and press this, you are quickly able to access any application that has now come available. Then why is it when we get our new phone, tablet, or computer everything becomes so confusing. It’s not that we can’t understand, but nothing is the same as they presented it to be. When did we let technology run away from us? We gave up our control when we let others decide what is acceptable. Waiting over thirty minutes on the phone to get assistance and being okay with that needs to stop. We may have no choice but to take courses in technology, go back to writing with a pen and paper, using a land line, or go to the library and looking things up the old fashion way. Since that won’t ever happen, we need to get as comfortable as we can while we wait on the phone to get the support we need.
