I read that one third of the world’s population suffers from being tech-phobic, but that group does not include me. I try to embrace technology, but I don’t keep up with the latest trends. There are many things that I have never done with my smart phone, and I have never worn those virtual reality goggles yet, although my great niece asked me if I wanted to try hers. The things that puzzle me the most are Network problems, as once I am connected then I can do my thing, but when things go wrong, I struggle to figure out what I need to do. My nephew gave me an Amazon Fire stick and I have not opened it up yet, as I have a smart TV and it seems like an unnecessary device for me. If I go on another vacation, I will get it set up and bring it along with me. I had a bunch of problems trying to get Alexa to recognize my new smart light bulbs that I purchased, so I gave up. Amazon really needs to make their software more friendly.
