It is terrific to know that not being tech savvy is no excuse for not using all the fun new gadgets. Many people are not tech savvy because they are afraid to try new technology. We all know people who are afraid of new technology. These are people who get one brand of cell phone and even though they hear about phones with better features, features they need, they still stick with the old phone. Or they are the people who hear about more efficient or maybe more cost-effective ways to do things but they stick with their current methods because they are afraid of the new technology. All these people should be encouraged. They do not have to be afraid.
Tech savvy is another way of saying a person knows about modern technology. One of the most interesting things about technology is the fact that it changes every day.

Our computers are now laptops and tablets that do the work it used to take a roomful of equipment to handle. Even water purifiers have been touched by technology and we can purify our water as we pour it into our pitchers and water bottles.

So true! This really reminds me I need to learn how to use my camera! I have no idea where the manual is but I’m sure I can download it online! Thanks for the reminder!
Lol, so simple and true!
Yes, there is always someone who can help you get more tech savy.
The good thing about not being tech savvy is you are not along & others understand that there are some of us that need a little bit more instructions & visuals to understand technology…..You are so right no excuses!
Keep working on getting tech savvy, sometimes it is fun to learn to use new devices and gadgets. And, if one group of people gets sick of helping you, go on and get another group to help you. Don’t give up.
I swear you must be talking to me. I am not tech savvy but I have realized that if I continue to at least try, I will get it. Half my problem is that I don’t like to bother people to help me. Some will help once, but if you continue to “not get it” they get short with you. Hence it causes me to be apprehensive. I am working on this for sure.
I love it Janeane!!
I used to use that approach too, until I drove my husband crazy one time too many. Now he won’t let me pass it off. I do miss those days.
The learning curve is probably what keeps people from keeping up with new technologyu. Especially if what they have is doing the job.
It is an interesting pursuit.
True, it is nice to have geek friends! They are very useful.
Yes, if you try to keep up with technology, your mind will stay fresh and active.
Yes! It seems as if children are now born with an extra technology gene. They take to technology like they take to air.
Oooo, that sounds exciting. I would like to see some of the photos when you learn more about how your camera works.
It is much more fun that way isn’t it!
I moved my book hoarding to my e-reader! If my readers are a good sampling, yes, you are a rare breed since you read the manuals.
My kids are too young to be trusted with my technology. I am looking forward to the days wehn they can teach me.
For all my technology talk, I totally ignored all the YouTube videos that show you how to use everything. Thanks for the reminder.
I like to take the “seize the technology and figure it out” approach. And by “seize” I mean, pass it off to my husband, lol.
I hate the learning curve that comes along with it, but I usually embrace whatever it is after some exposure.
I’m not usually tech savvy but I sure try to be!
I’m more tech savvy than I usually give myself credit for, but honestly I’m a big fan of having geek friends. 🙂
I think at one point we were all not so tech savvy. We learn as new gadgets come out.
I am one of the least tech savvy people around! I am always having to learn something new. Just as soon as I learn it, there is something else! Oh well, keeps my mind fresh!
I think I’m pretty tech savvy. I love new technology! What surprises me is how tech savvy young kids are these days. My 3 year old knows how to work an iPad better than my mom! lol
Today, I am going to make a point to learn more modes on my dslr.
I do love gadgets and I agree that just throwing yourself in there and using them makes it so much easier!
I’m a book hoarder and not only mysteries and fiction, but nonfictional books. I’m actually one of those who do read the manual (must be a rare breed!), lol.
I enjoy new technology but I usually have my kids explain it to me. Makes it much easier!
I enjoy new technology but I have come to realize that not everyone does. I wonder how many people have time to read the manual? lol I will say that I love that there are so many video’s out there where people show you how and what your gadget can do. That’s where I learn the most. I know some folks live for all the nitty gritty details and I love them for making it simple for me. 🙂
