Yes, I got an iPad 2! I am so excited! I didn't know that having a Kindle and then an iPhone would lead to this addiction but there you have it...all since Mother's Day. The road to wireless electronic media nirvana addiction was short and sweet, and the pushers weren't even shady characters!
Almost 30 years ago I had my handwriting analyzed by a psychic who often appeared on a local TV program. The most surprising and unbelievable thing she told me all those years ago was that I would spend long hours working on a computer. At the time, home computers in middle American neighborhoods were as rare as private jets. A few years later Bill surprised me with a computer for Christmas. I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but I was intrigued. A few years later Bill began his own business and there I was...on the computer at work and at home for long hours at a time.
In retirement I am spending as much time per day as I did when we had the business, but now it 95% pleasure with just a little productive accounting thrown in. It is funny to think of that first computer with its limited memory, bulky monitor, those large floppy disks and no internet and see how that led to the lightweight, oh so portable devices I use today.
Does your computer time surprise you too?
