Cut off from the world……. Technology Detox

Standard

All those who know me know I am obsessed with technology in all forms and on all platforms. From Twitter to Facebook to BBM….

So on Friday I got to work only to find my Blackberry frozen , I been a techno gadgety girl decided to fix it but alas the phone would not come on at all. Such horror for me cut off from the world..Luckily for me I had my Samsung Tablet on me as I was stuck at work with everyone gone and no way of getting in touch with my brother .Then the genius in me decided to email him and my friend M who rescued me by calling my mum.

Even my 2 fully charged batteries didnt help me this time. So since Friday I have been with a phone and connection to my Techno world. Went into the Service provider yesterday only to find out that my phone needed a software upgrade but alas the guy who normally does it was away till Monday.But while there I found out valuable info on BB BIS and how it would affect me as well as that I am due for an upgrade next month yipeee.

I must admit I feel very out of the loop not constantly been in the loop but its a kind of Techno detox. Last night I was able to catch up watching several series and even got to watch a documentary which was fab.So maybe I needed this Detox….. However mum has given me an old Nokia phone with very limiting features just sms and calling actually feels strange and weird having this phone.

Hopefully tomorow I will have my phone and be in the loop again… To all my fellow bloggers and tweeting community I have missed you guys.. Hope you missed me too…..

Aside

It amazes me how techno savy my mum has become in the last 3 weeks since getting a Blackberry . The first few days I almost tore my hair out trying to teach her the basics of BBM and using the phone .Mum was adament she didnt want this silly phone so to make her fall in love with her phone i bought her a pretty cover to make it her own. She was very upset at not having all her contacts , pics and music.I had to console her that i would put in her numbers and get all her stuff back.

This sunday she amazed me by changing her profile pic and updating her status on her own ( proud teacher moment).Mum is getting into coming into the Blackberry world, it was just a matter of time.I guess we are all resistant to change and something new, just takes a little time and eventually we will except the change and move forward.I cringe at where to from here for my new techno savy mum Facebook , Twitter , Blogging I have already had to monitor my BBM status and profile pic updates,

Technology is so fast changing we do need to embrace it , we need to learn , we need to perserve and we need to demand better service and better value for money.

I am a creature of stability and guess change does scare me but life has taught to me embrace the change , explore it , fall in love with it and you never know you might be pleasantly surprised.Ciao for now my techno loving lovelies,,,,,

It amazes me ho…
