Justifying the old ‘boys with toys’ saying it has been fascinating to get used to this new chapter in my technological education.
I’ve used a desktop PC for years but even after using this little gem for less than a week I’m asking myself why I would ever want another desktop computer?
I can take my new little friend with me wherever I go on business. It’s not heavy – it’s not big and it feels oddly re-assuring to know I’m carrying my office with me!
I also have a dongle – that sounds rude – and this little tool that I plug into a USB socket enables me to connect to the internet in most places I find myself on business. I am from a generation that was used to the manual typewriter. When I started out on my career typing was almost entirely a female role and most managers had a secretary 'to do that sort of stuff.' Now all managers - regardless of gender - have their own desktop or laptop computer. When I stop and reflect there has been phenomenal progress in the office setting and personally I welcome it all. I cannot imagine anyone would really want to go back to ‘the good old days’ of carbon paper and tippex?
The younger folks reading this Blog entry are no doubt scratching their heads and thinking - What the hell is this guy on about?
