Memory UPgrade Needed

Updated on January 14, 2011

Boost your Memory

Lets face it, with age comes diminishes memory. It is an unfortunate fact of life. We forget dates, names, age, and where we placed our keys. Memories of course are formed in the brain and are stored there for as long as you live. The key to memory enhancement is to continue using your brain by exercising and challenging it with different tasks.

Keeping abreast of digital and new technology although mind rattling at first has its rewards. Not only wil you benefit from the new and improved product but you will feel younger, improve your memory and look way more modern than what you really feel.

Old School Memory

I acknowledge being pretty resistant to change especially when in comes to electronics and new technology. If something works just fine, why meddle with it? I've always felt the same. I don't need the latest anything that promises to be better, faster, or smarter. Somehow, most of these claims always seem to fall short of my expectations and really do they really make our life any easier?

I would be willing to bet I was the last person to hold out before owning a cell phone. I never really understood the kind of people that waste money upgrading equipment that is fully functional and end up with drawers full of old model cell phones, chargers, and cases they can no longer use. For me, if it breaks, then I probably but hesitantly will replace the item. Upgrade or change it because a new model is out, totally incomprehensible to me and a huge waste of money.

My husband has been poking fun at me for ages because of my unwillingness to get with the tech program. I think this started right around when vhs were still around but the new dvd players had just hit the market. Every household had to have both and so the confusion began. Three remote controls to watch a half hour episode of TV. One for the TV set, another for the vhs and yet another for the dvd player. Ridiculous! This is how I slowly withdrew from watching the television set altogether and rapidly began hating all electronics.

Sometimes I think my husband reroutes electronic equipment to confuse the heck out of me on purpose and to discourage me from using any of it. That way nothing is ever out of place when he wants to watch a show and he never has to share. If I have to spend 30 minutes fidgeting with remote controls to watch a 30 minute TV show, I give up, I'm not watching it. I don't have a bachelors in electronics no even a certificate. Visitors in my house normally have to read. I can't turn on any of this crap, Sorry!

Really I never thought to upgrade the equipment I already owned or felt I needed any of these as my old model cell phone, computer, nano iPod, 35mm camera, and Kindle worked just fine. Truth be told if it wasn't for the electronics pusher in my household I would still be stuck in the dark ages, technologically speaking. He makes sure to gift me with the latest gadgets because he knows I won't get them for myself. Although I do put up a protest and remind him I want nothing with buttons, that rings or downloads, I have to admit to liking his latest purchase, Yes! I now have an ipad. Eat your heart outs.

Welcome New Age of Technology

My ipad is the best little thing since apple pie. Of course I thanked him but won't really let him know how amazing and how much I am thoroughly enjoying my new iPad 3G with WiFi. I had seen them before and even read reviews on them. I convinced myself they weren't all that. I now know better. Apart from being thrilled with how fast it is and the level of entertainment options, it is super light weight and more comfortable to tote to work and operate than any laptop. Being an apple product, it's similar and comparable with an iPhone except for one huge difference, the screen size! and of course its inability to make calls yet. It has become my new favorite toy.

So yeah, I needed the memory upgrade after all otherwise I woudn't be enjoying myself immensely with all the new digital and electronic stuff available out there. I'm glad my husband saw the need to sharpen my senses, upgrade my memory and keep me within this century.

      The I Pad looks good. I just got an adroid phone and I love it the the learning curve has been a little slower than I'm sure it is for younger people.

      Great hub.

      Too funny! and Good for you. I know what you mean. I won't let anyone touch my ipad! I hate to admit this but sometimes I get asked to use it and I tell them I forgot to charge it afraid someone will drop it.

      Hopefully you won't need bail.

      Enjoyed this very much. Yes I would need the services of a Bail Bondsman if anyone tried to take my ipod or Kindle and I'm only a young 79 yr-- grandma and great-grandma.
