When Old Is New

I have pretty much concluded that, at my age, a lot of today’s technology has kind of passed me by.  There is so much going on that I don’t understand at all.  For instance, I just saw an ad for a cell phone and they were touting that it supports 5G.  Not only do I not know what the other four G’s are, I don’t even know what a G is.  All this kind of made me feel obsolete until I watched the following video.  That’s when I saw that it is not that I have fallen behind, but that I am endowed with a knowledge base that is somewhat obscure and, apparently, contains technology known only to me and those that are of an age.  So, while I will continue to struggle to understand their phone, take a look at these two teens struggling to understand mine.


About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at poormanspoet.wordpress.com to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. The “G” stands for Generation. The higher the number, the faster the speed.

    The thing is that kids today do not have a foundation of ‘learning’ or using common sense. A fact they don’t understand.
