    Are you not embracing all the forced technology?

    From online banking to internet everything....some people, especially the elderly, just don't want to do things this way!

    Yeah, I don't exactly want to keep getting older either, but hey, shit happens.

    It isn't a matter of not wanting to do things that way, it is matter of having to learn new ways after a lifetime of doing things another way.  When our parents were young, technology was introduced at a much slower pace. Today, things change at lightning speed and it is hard for people to keep up, learn new ways, have those ways change yet again etc.

    I embrace most of the technology and use the internet for banking and shopping.  But I don't like the intrusions of cell phones into all of our lives.  If I am eating dinner at a restaurant, I have to hear people's personal conversations etc. at other tables. 

    So I have embraced it with some reservations.
