Thank goodness that the younger generation can fix a computer. It creates a close relation with the grandchildren and you get the computer fixed for free.
You can still be smarter – in the real non-virtual world
I’d like to see Nelson fix this problem with my iMac: on the GoComics page, the computer freezes when I’m about to type a comment or am typing midway through a comment, and I have to refresh. I contacted GoComics personnel a few months ago and they said to delete the advertisements on the page. That worked for a while until it happens again once in a while.
There’s a difference between “smart” and “skilled” (and “informed”)
I feel it’s a matter of a flexible approach to a changing technology and the ability to try things out without fear of ‘breaking it’, not being intimidated with being wrong.
I need Nelson to fix “Outlook”. I used to use it to read my Gmail. Suddenly it quit working. No seems to be able to fix it.
Those days ended when…er…he was born.
Try the Firefox browser we have that one for years and no problems.
Kids grow up with them these days and know a lot of things we don’t!
Than they become Teens and know it all when actually they know Dogs@%t ! /s
I miss the good old days when people weren’t so focused on their devises.
Kids seem to take to the digital environment early and many to it very well. However, from what I have seen, the screen becomes more important than the real world view and they don’t handle other elements in their lives as well. Parental guidance in the first 5 years is still the key.
Take away the electronic devices and see what the kid can do ;-)
They can even stop the clock blinking on your VCR. ;-)
Ha ha ha. Doesn’t take much to click on ALLOW access to everything on your phone and in your life. I’ve been computing since programs were written on cards.
Not only do I know a lot about them, I have built many of my own. I love gadgets, but even I’m being overwhelmed by all the new stuff. Yesterday, I saw a guy with a phone in his ear the size of quarter but thicker. No extended microphone, that was it.
When he was in his crib, right, Earl?
Try Dit Dit Dit Ding…..
Our 3 year old granddaughter learned how to unlock her Dad’s iPhone by holding it up to his face when he took a nap. It scares me to think what’s coming…
We didn’t have those when we were young, so we invented them.
try using an ad blocker with yahoo mail. I’m convinced that yahoo deliberately causes problems
From the world of Microsoft, Bill Gates and CEO Satya Nadella announce an yet new version of its consistently mediocre “flagship” Windows software, Version 11, June 24, 2021. Users running into difficulty with the “most significant overhaul ever” are encouraged to jump out of first story windows. (oops, pun not intended.) This may be worse than publishing Windows 10 for tablets and forcing it into PCs on a cloud.
Because grandkids are smarter then grandparents, they learn better.
I do not like learning technology at my age. YouTube can help only so much. I need a real techno nerd to guide me right at my side. Afraid I’ll mess up and won’t know how I messed up nor how to fix the mess up. Computers and cell phones, in many ways, have made my life more frustrating than easy. Plus, call center reps only understand the jargon they’ve been trained in while us great unwashed, can explain our problems in plain English and they stay to their script. Not much help, too often.
I just call my grandson…he’s a whiz!
Same as when immigrant parents ask their small children to interpret for them. Kids pick up language naturally. Adults: extraordinary effort.
I’d love to see the grandkid change a ribbon or a piece of paper on a typewriter
Don’t be afraid of computers! Take the time to learn.
Can I borrow him to uninstall Cortana? I had it disabled and never had to deal with it until the last Windows update. Now it starts itself every 20 minutes or so. I removed it from the start up app list, but once my lap top gets warm its zombie ass rises up and offers a log on page. Why Microsoft wants to annoy its customers with it is beyond me.
I can’t comment any more on Arcamax and no way to reach them!
I need to get my 10 year old grandson to take a look at my computer. It has a few bugs that I’m sure he could find and fix. Or even his 9 year old sister!
That was probably before he was born.
I hear ya
I see the comics on my ipad and have no problems.
