This article talks about the author's realization that her infatuation with technology was not what it used to be. She does not know how old her television is and finds shopping for a television complicated. She has a cellular phone, but continues to hang on to her land line. She does not want a Blackberry or a Treo because she can not read the small screens. However, she claims that she has not lost her interest in technology yet because she uses blog sites and said she could not do what she has to do every day without Bloglines and RSS. She said she will give up her iPod only when she is dead. She bought a Global Positioning System unit for her truck and is pleased with her purchase.
