If you want to take the mystery out of your technology, just read the manual. As a television show once taught us, “take a look in a book.” Reading the manual may seem boring, but it will actually increase your enjoyment of technology.
It is terrific to know that you can take the mystery out of your technology if you read the manual. I am an intelligent woman. I do not say this to brag or out of pride. I say it because it is a fact. Many intelligent women like me, have a problem with our technology. The problem is that we refuse to read the manuals that come with our technology BEFORE we use the technology.
– we think we know how the thing works
– we have had an item like this one and think we know it all
– we want to start playing with our new toys right away
I have manuals for all my tablets, my e-reader, my smartphone, my laptop, and all my other pieces of technology. In the past, I only read the manuals when there was a problem I couldn’t figure out on my own. However, recently, I tried something new. I started reading my manuals before I started playing with my new technology.
It has been a fun and interesting experience. I learned several features my e-reader had that I did not know it had. I learned ways to save battery, how the lighting could be optimized and how to better organize my growing book collection. When I read the manual for my camera I learned to take better photographs and lots of features that I never thought of using that would make my photos better.
