Tablets and what not
In the good old days, friendship was just going out for a walk and talking to each other with only your dog eavesdropping.
Now friendship is talking to each other on Facebook with the whole world eavesdropping.
In the good old days, tablet was something that my dad used to give me to swallow with a glass of water when I was not feeling well.
Or the word kindle was something the Famous Five used to do in Enid Blyton’s book when they went camping and wanted to light a fire.
Today you ask any child the meaning of Kindle and they will rattle out “ let me see…….. do you have a Android phone ? Then maybe I can tell you the compatibility chances of…..”
"What do you mean Android? And its an Android phone not a Android phone. Have you not learnt about the vowels in school? A E I O U"
“That’s kewl, now as we were talking about this Kindle thingy, its really awesome especially if you are going for the Amazon Kindle. Its just mind boggling and ……”
“Wait a minute, what are the advantages of this Kindle thingy, I mean thing?”
"Well if you are not satisfied with Kindle, you can go in for the Nook”

“Aha touchscreen, yes I have seen that. Look here, why don’t we just simply buy a book from the bookstore and curl up in a corner on a rainy day and read and enjoy the book. Do you know the joy of the lovely smell of a new book? When one page is over you simply turn the page and continue reading. And when you want to keep it away you simply put in a bookmark…….
“No probs there, I will Google it up”
Google it? What about the good old dictionary?”
“Oh my Gawd, you are so boring, come on, you have to move with the times…… why don’t you just twitter it and you will get lots of …..”
“I don’t know how this twittering thing works and has never done it. I only know that someone twittered and then he had to resign and had to move down south and is now happily married and settled down in God’s own country watching cricket”
“Now I am off to the corner book store”
