Behind the technology curve - Part 2

About 12 years ago, I made a career shift and intentionally slowed-down.  I decided that I needed to take a deep breath and that keeping up with the newest technology was one of the things that I would set aside.  I liked techie things as much as the next guy and figured I would catch-up somewhere down the road.  Boy, was I wrong!  It seems now like I just woke-up one day and I was hopelessly behind the times.
  • I've never had an iPod  . . . I still listen to music on CDs.
  • I've never had a Blackberry or iPhone nor have I ever sent someone a text message.
  • I use e-mail and I blog but I still don't buy-into the Twitter phenomenom  . . . Does anybody really care where you had lunch today?
  • I don't have a Wi or play video games but I used to occasionally play pinball, if that means anything to you.
  • I don't have a GPS but I can read a map with the best of 'em. 
  • No DVR at our house so I just watch what's playing when I turn the TV on. If I don't like it, I just turn it off.

Get the picture?  I can't imagine now how I could ever catch-up now.  Excuse me while I reorganize my 8-track tapes.
