And this morning Google, which I like because it has cute colors, told me that the two files I own (that I did not know about) are now stored in the new Google Drive.
These two unknown files of mine are now kept in a cloud.
I clearly live in a fog.
I have considered getting a smart phone, but I cannot justify the cost. The little cell phone I own does everything I need. It sends messages, which is 99 percent of what I do with it, mostly to my child bride, and I can also call people, which is rare.
The phone set me back about $25. I have no contract. I buy time with little scratch cards or at the supermarket checkout, as needed.
It has no camera because I already have a nice little Kodak. It does not play music, and I do not care. I have music in my Honda and in my home.
I don’t want music on the sidewalk because I might get hit by a car while dancing.
When Amazon, a company I really like, came out with the Kindle Fire, I seriously considered buying one. It has lots of colors. Then I thought to myself: You already waste too much time online. Do you want to waste even more?
So I have no Kindle Fire or any other tablet.
I am not one of those precious people who takes pride in being backward. I would like to own a smart phone and tablet, but I do not, for the reasons stated.
I realize my level of ignorance is soaring, which is disturbing.
But I can do everything I want and need to do. And at a good price.
And that cloud thing. I once got lost in a cloud in a small Cessna over a Louisiana swamp. It was no fun, so I have a thing about clouds.
The colors are nice though. My Kindle Reader has no colors. And if I lived near a Barnes & Noble, I likely would not have the Kindle either.
I wouldn’t see the need.
