This phone will self destruct in ten seconds
I recently got a fairly whiz bang new mobile phone for work. I have had an older Nokia for years and really like it for its simplicity and intuitive understanding of how it works. I got the new phone so that I have a camera for visits to new sites. I got a whole lot more as well, most of which I have not figured out.
My daughter on the other hand had it figured out within five minutes. She had changed the boring ring tone to one she sang, changed the start up photo and wallpaper, recorded some videos and was hassling me to download some games. No peace for the wicked.
I laughed looking at this cartoon, thinking that I am more like an old person than a young person when it comes to technology. In the back of my mind there is always the worry that the phone will self destruct if I press certain combination of buttons.
