Technology Is Confusing

I like to think I know a thing or two about technology. As a millennial, I consider myself competently tech-savvy, able to function in today’s high-tech world.

…Nah, whom am I kidding? I can’t even hook up my brother’s Wii U without his guidance. Why doesn’t it use the same AV cable setup as other devices? How do I make it connect to the Internet? Why are there so many downloads?! Back in my day, I just blew the dust out of the game cartridge, slammed it into the Super Nintendo, and turned it on.

I’ve become a relic of a bygone age, and I’m only in my twenties. I hate to think of how technologically illiterate I’ll be in fifty years. Maybe, at that point, I’ll have robots to hook up my electronics for me. We’ll see.

  1. All the way through college, I was usually the first of my friends to join new social networking sites. It was exciting to check them out and get a feel for how they worked, what would be popular (twitter, pinterest) and what wouldn’t (*so many*), and to see these services pop up in mainstream news and be able to say “oh yeah, I joined that a year ago”

    Now everybody tells me I’m “too old for snapchat.” Sigh.

    • I’m quite the opposite: new networking websites intimidate me. Years ago, it took the combined efforts of friends, relatives, and acquaintances to get me to join Facebook.
