Along with a wireless network for the house, Michelle got us a whatcha-callit box for streaming on the TV. Oooh, Netflix and all that jazz! (We did have Netflix for the computer before this.) Another bold step into the 21st century!
So when I'm watching movies or Brit TV or whatever, I can open the tablet and go searching IMDb or Wiki to get the scoop when I spot an actor whose work I like or who I want to find out more about or confirm where I've seen them before. Which is a thing with me.
(Yet whenever I see or try any of these new tech toys, I can never forget that moment so many years ago, when we scaled up from our Commodore 64 to our first PC [had to have been in '86] and the ever sage Susan Garret gave me this piece of advice: "Learn to love the mouse.")
So, I now own my very first device: A Samsung tab3. Oooh, shiny. (Our family desktop and my very simple cell phone do not count--well, maybe the iPod nano Michelle had--as a grad present from us--then passed back to me a few years ago, does count).
