How Not To Use An iPad

I sent this to someone recently over Skype, to cheer them up about MY not being cheered up. I loved hearing them laugh, and even though this video is not in English, you’ll get it.

I can use some properly-applied humour at the moment, it’s been a little stressful. If you need some cheering up too? Enjoy.

    How Not To Use An iPad


    I used one for the first time today. It made me feel like a superhero. Specifically the Hulk as in “Hulk SMASH stupid pad!” I tap one row and it registers a click on a different row. I try to save an email attachment, it tried to open it instead. The whole experience was just frustrating. At least it wasn’t mine. I tell you, that old man had the right idea; just put it in a box and walk away.

      Alverant don’t give up. I’m a 61 year old luddite, and i’ve gone from wanting to heave the little begger out the window to calling it my new best friend. There are some things that you need a laptop for, but there is so much you can do with these little fellows. Of course I have a tech savvy newphew-in-law who listens to me rant, then helps me to use it correctly. Just sayin…..

    I’m a little confused here. I found this wonderful iPad skit on the facebook page of Natalie, but when I look to the side here I see I’m now on the site of someone named Kylie. Sorry if my first comment made no sense as a result of this. Still loved the skit.

      It’s okay – you must have confused the Freethought links on the side? Hope you stick around to read here too.

        I surely will. I’m very interested in the areas you write about in your blog info. I think of it as a positive side step in cyber space.

          I’ll try to behave myself. No promises though, I’ve had a few weird and gruelling days online recently! #Gah

    She: How are you coming along with your new iPad that we gave you for your birthday?

    He: Good.

    She: You understand all the apps?

    He: What apps? Could you step aside for a moment?

    He: What?

      Ha! Thank you!

    Cannot think of a better use for an iPad, except perhaps to trowel concrete.
