- New Year - New Technology -
There is something about the New Year that makes you think of new beginnings, of not staying put, or continuing to do the same things day after day. In these strange times, we cannot move about so freely, but we can, with Technology. This year, when we have found ourselves so distanced from our friends and our family, even those who just live around the corner, it has been technology which has been the way we have been allowed keep in touch with those we love and to see them in person to make sure they are really still o.k.
Yet, sad to say, while more of us than ever are chatting away online, many others still hold back. There are many reasons for this, starting with not knowing which of all the many systems would suit your needs best. After all, choosing between a laptop, computer, or tablet is hard enough, then you have to add in an operating system!
Some of you will almost certainly have received a laptop, pc or tablet a few days ago for Christmas - you unwrap it from the box, all excited, but then the confusion really sets in. How to fit it together? How to start it up? And often the giver does not know either, they just thought you would like it. Now although there is, for the most part, a manual, it often includes phrases that are totally baffling if you don't know how to operate any kind of computer already. And I am sure there are quite a few of you who have managed this, but still only use the basic functions, just in case you break something, or the machine locks up entirely.
Of course, what you really need is to open the box and find an email address for a friendly helper to guide you through it, remotely, without me needing to visit you or you needing to visit me. In fact I not only give assistance, I maintain and build websites, and I can even make it snow! If you don't believe me, head back to www.card-world.co.uk
then lets have a friendly chat, and I can start getting you online....
