I remember the insanity of Flappy Bird. It’s interesting how some things are a big deal for just a brief time. One hit wonder sort of thing.

Social On The Desktop

Standard

I prefer desktop versions of blogging and social media platforms than the app/mobile versions. Something about a real keyboard and a big screen. Of course its very hard to do a selfie with a laptop or desktop computer and it doesn’t look like you are straining.

Mobile has its place and is how a lot of people post what is going on in their lives but the clack clack of a physical keyboard is somewhat comforting. Also as one gets older it becomes harder to see a tiny screen so a bigger screen is what I prefer.

Can You Take This Call?

Standard

In my line work I talk to people of all ages and all walks of life. Our world is more connected with technology than ever before. A good majority of us have wireless phones that do amazing things. They have apps that can help us manage our lives….one thing these phones can do that many have seemed to forget is to talk on them.

It is important for users of a certain age to be trained in how to have conversations that do not involve texting. Users of a certain age still use their phones to have a voice conversation and will leave voice mail. Using these traditional tools of communication is vital sometimes because you can’t convey emotion in the same way by text based chat. It’s important for people of all generations to take a call in all forms.

Tumblr For Android Update

Standard

Friends if you use an Android device there is an update available for the Tumblr app. You can go to the Google Play store and download it. It’s good that there is a commitment to mobile from the folks at Tumblr. LIfe is about blogging in real life and real time. Having a platform that embraces that philosophy can help users get the most out of their Tumblr experience.
