Merry Techy Christmas
Santa is coming to town and all his stack frames are full with geeky goodies.
The day before Christmas Eve I talked with my grandma using Skype. She got a Samsung Galaxy 10.2 for birthday. Now she’s eagerly waiting for the introduction to “Internet” (read: browsing the web), but is already doing video chats with me and my cousins on Skype, playing Solitaire, and checking the TV guide through an app. Facebook isn’t really a priority yet, but hey, in a few weeks who is tagging the latest Christmas photos?
A few hours ealier as we were going from Malmö back to me and my girlfriend’s hometown we stopped to eat lunch and pick up Lisa's grandma Ann-Marie. She enthusiastically explained how she's keeping track of birthdays in Broby (a very small town in th north eastern corner of Skåne). This intrigued Lisa’s other grandma and the result…Ann-Marie showing Maud last year’s Christmas photos on her computer. I was stunned! Ann-Marie who only got her computer a day less than a year ago is writing e-mails, reading the news, and now, introducing other parts of the older generation to the world of technology. Luckily I managed to snap a photo of this historic event.
Merry Christmas everyone!
