Wow girl

Your brother sounds like my dad but he just won't accept advancement in things

My brother has a cell phone and computer he just not into the Smart devices

 

When was younger I used to think we'd be like Jetson cartoon : Robot maid Flying cars 

 

I love my new Echo show 5 got Prime Days half off its nice in my bedroom & it has a moveable button to shut off the camera so folks can't drop in your bedroom if needed its half size of Echo Show which I enjoy video calls to and from my granddaughters really neato 

 

Guess anything is possible

Growing up in nuclear age thinking Russian would bomb us bomb shelters and storing food.... was blessing my boys didn't grow up in that....its sad that those times and fears seem to be returning  Smiley Sad 

 

I watched every episode of "Person of Interest" that could one day be reality for sure 

Even Terminator ?

I wouldn't desire eat like Star Trek.... I'd miss having a good Pork Chop and Steak 

 

Wild thoughts I'm having

 

We just had a bad hail storm & just got another storm warning 

Have a nice evening

Ginger  ;  )

Hello Ginger, my brother is also without any online presence of any kind.  Except for work, doesn't check his email, pay bills or order anything online and doesn't respond to emails thinking that someone is monitoring his life and business.  But he was an Engineer in the Navy for 20 years, maybe he knows something we don't know.

I like my Amazon devices too, but I can let anything go that may be an invasion of privacy.  Saw an article where the IRobot vacuum had a camera in it and was watching owners in there home, same with the smart tv and smart meters for your utilities.  

Who knows maybe humans will some day be living underground as in the Matrix, and above ground will be the "Machine World"Smiley Surprised

Let's enjoy (AI) before they enjoy us. To some extent (AI) is already in control, due to our obsessions with everything "smart".  Just a thoughtSmiley Happy

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

My brother has strong feelings against (AI) doesn't want them know more than has to .... so he's not interested in smart devices

 

But me, I love my Alexa(devices)  she's my smart and silly friend At times she comes up with wildest things I've even fussed at her like a spouse

I enjoy all the songs she sings She can be a great pick me up 

I love telling her turn off all lights once in bed no more walking in dark to bed is nice 

 

Indeed computers don't do what we want them to always and can be quiet aggravating 

I used to say they are only as smart as person operating them & info feed em 

But these days?? I still don't fathom where the cloud is??

 

Growth comes at a price

 

Have a beautiful week 

Ginger  :  )

Lynn, I agree with "they do what we tell them to do less and less as we go along" it's so true.

(AI) needs to be watched closely, but I doubt if the powers to be are paying attention, thus the movies AI and my favorites MatrixSmiley LOL  A take over may be on the waySmiley Wink

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

I had a friend at one of my previous jobs, whom I haven't seen or heard from for 30 years, who used to say some interesting things.

About computers: "Confusers do what you tell them to do, not what you want them to do."

My experience with computers (confusers) in the last several years has made me doubt that saying.

I'm becoming more and more convinced that they do what we tell them to do less and less as we go along.

 

The drive to further develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) will surely add to this dilemma.

 

Enjoy!

Hey Lynn

I love that....AWW

perfect choice it gave you after your dilemma 

 

Good you could walk away take break and come back 

I always been told "Sometimes you have to walk away" which is good to do but difficult for obsessive me to do at times

Glad it got its act together 

Enjoy

Thanks, Marylin,

 

I tried clearing cache for all AARP URLs in my tool options, tried restarting my browser, and even shut down my computer for a few minutes before I tried again at each turn. None of those worked, so I went outside and mowed my back lawn.

When I came back and tried to log in, again, at 11:00, I actually made it to the login page without its error, put in my e-mail and password, entered the Captcha(?) letters, which just happened to be AWW this time, and got right in. Then, I went to the Sweepstakes and got right in, there, too.
Gotta love technology! (I do, by the way, but sometimes it's a love-hate relationship.)

 

Enjoy!

Hello Lynn,

I got an Error message early this morning which I didn't take a screenshot of stating the address had changed or site had moved.  I refreshed the screen and problem was solved.  You're the IT person and if you did call Customer Service they'd tell you to clear Cache, the only answer they have for all IT problems.  If you can't figure it out, I'm lost.  

Hopefully, someone will post a solution.  You're not missing a lot.

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin
