Describe your last attempt to learn something that did not come easily to you.
I am somewhat of a luddite when it comes to technology. Recently I purchased an Asus TF 300 Transformer Pad [i.e. tablet]. I still don’t know if I’m regretting that purchase or not.
I find it hard to get used to the touch technology, and at times my finger points to one thing and something else comes up that I don’t want.
Going into my e-mail account is a rather strange experience, as the way it shows up on the screen is not anywhere near what it looks like on my PC screen.
I can’t seem to figure out the step by step process of transferring file documents from my memory stick to a file on the tablet—even though I’ve been successful in that task a couple of times, I’ve no idea how it happened, just a few trial and error attempts and somehow it worked.
I do have a keyboard and much prefer using it for performing various functions on the tablet as opposed to touch with the fingers. I wish one could use a mouse, but I don’t think one can without damaging the operating system.
So far, I haven’t summoned up enough courage to post on this blog using the tablet—maybe one day.
