Slowly Moving into the Tech World

About a year ago I added a Samsung Chromebook to my limited arsenal of technology. I also have a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone. I have now linked them together so that I can text message from my Chromebook and as I am typing on my Chromebook, I just received a pop-up message that my phone battery is low and down to 14%.

I've added a few other features to my Chromebook and I am trying to make more use of my phone's capabilities.

As it is, both of my Samsung products are way more technology than I really need. I am happy to be able to make a phone call, send and receive text messages and access the internet. Yeah, I take some pictures and post on social networks, but I suppose I could get by just fine without that. I also get score updates for the Cardinals and the Blues, but again -- I could live without that.

I still read actual books and using the ancient method of e-mail to communicate.
And I still try to actually talk to people on occasion.
I do not have a Netflix account, nor do I use Hulu, Amazon TV, not even a DVR to watch shows that I miss. If I can't watch them during the broadcast time, I just don't watch them.

I think about things like a Fitbit or other wearable devices, but then I think -- nah, it's not worth it to me. All-in-all, I'm still a technological moron, but I am slowly learning to adapt. I suppose that I will continue to learn more things that I can do with my limited devices and knowledge. It is still fun to learn new things and find out how to do things that many people are already doing.

Little things still make me happy.

That is most of the stuff out there for me too. I don't even like to text.
