Friday Five: Technology

Although you won't know this, I am pre-posting this ten days ahead of schedule, because my husband and I are going to be in Washington State during his spring break (from teaching at a local community college). His parents have very recently moved into a senior living facility. We will be staying at their home, which will not have some of the furniture and supplies like we are used to. What I am dreading is no computer, tv or telephone, which also means no wifi connection. This is showing my dependence upon these technologies.

For this Friday Five, let us explore our use of and desire for such items.

1. What types of technologies, like cell phones, computers, tvs, etc., do you routinely use? How frequently?

2. What social media and/or games do you like to play? How often? On which device do you occupy yourself? Which method of social media do you prefer?

3. Do you separate online activities between home and work? Or is it all the same everywhere?

4. Do you have a smart (or I-) phone?

5. What do you wish you had--or do not have--in relation to these devices?

Bonus: What is the difference between your attitude towards these means of technology and a generation older or younger than you?

    1. People use the word "iconic" too much and with the wrong application. But, I do believe that image to be truly iconic!

  2. I played on-line over at signs-along-the-way!

  3. Hope you are having a great trip, Jan!

    I played Techno-Happy!

    1. Marci, I couldn't comment on your blog. Ask me (Jan Hilton) to play on Words with Friends!

    1. You have to search the blog for "signs of spring". Something weird going on either with wordpress or with me or maybe both.

  6. Well, I used the 'create a link' and wasn't sure how to get the url as it immediately connects me here when I click my title !

    A further bit of 'Techno Play' and I discovered Techno info I hadn't known before!

  7. Here's my basic and enhanced play for today. Thanks, Jan, see you (online, virtually, technologically) when you return.

  8. I played here, though I wasn't sure if I would be able to here in Wa State.

    Hey, I am really sorry that I forgot to put the LINK in my pre-posting of this FF!

    Blessed connector is my title...because this explosion of connection is amazing and has truly blessed my family and my life! :)

  10. My link doesn't work -- can you just click on my name, that'll do it. Thanks. Ruth Everhart

  11. my thoughts on what I use and where I go to escape it
