Can you relate to my love/hate relationship with technology?
I love love love my MacBook computer... best purchase ever! But when it doesn't work, and acts up for no apparent reason, it can be so frustrating.
I recently spent about 6 hours at the local "Genius Bar" getting my computer fixed. Even the best geniuses are no match for my "old" computer!
OLD, you say?!?!
I started laughing out loud, and I mean laughing LOUDLY, because I remembered a Ron James comedy routine. He is one of my favorite Canadian comedians . If you haven't seen his computer rant, I posted it here for your enjoyment. If it's not your kind of humour, at least fast forward it to 4:45 to hear my favorite part about "old" computers.
Okay... back to the Genius Bar...so the teenaged employees stared at me like I had lost my mind, while I laughed at nothing except my memories of Ron James' definition of "old". Too funny!
Well, thankfully I haven't lost my mind, and luckily for me nothing was lost on my OLD computer. But it sure was a big "wake up call" for me. I need to back up everything to make sure I don't lose several years of precious memories/photos.
The geniuses told me that I had to buy a new external hard drive to replace my old broken elephant.
Say what!?!? My elephant hard drive is hardly used and just a few years old. But they said it was broken, so who am I to argue with a genius?
Of course I bought the new hard drive.
And just look at the difference in size (and amount of cords etc) between the old and the new one!
Look at the difference in width of the devices!
Okay, so maybe the big elephant in the room is OLD!
And so am I!!
