My kids know more about the fan-dangled new phone/camera contraptions we have than I do, by a long shot. And they do it the same way you do, Roy, by just fiddling with it. When we upgraded our phones recently, after they arrived I sat down with the manual and read through it while the phone charged. The next day I tried a couple of things. Meanwhile, my kids and dh sat around punching buttons. "Hey mom, look, I took this picture!" "Me too, and I made mine wallpaper!" "Cool, you can do a short video, LOOK!"
Me: How do you do speed-dial?
Oldest: You just press the number and hold it till it dials.
Me: How did you find that out???
Oldest: Just played with it.
Well, I maintain SOME of us don't have that kind of playing genes built in!! My kids take after their father!!
I hope to learn a lot (from a friend who has kindly consented to mentor me
) about my PDA, when it gets back from the repair place.
No cameras, they're WAY too confusing. F-stops, etc. .. .. I need totally automatic, easy.
Dh is very helpful when it comes to puter stuff.
