Sorry Horus, I have used the expression before you may have not seen my explanation, MZ is short for Mobile Zombie, those that have their phones glued to their noses. I have just got my first I Phone and now wonder why, can't understand a damn thing on it. I am no IT buff so will have to find someone to teach me. My daughter pressured me to get one, I don't really use a mobile very much, the most complicated thing I have owned is a Blackberry and even then the Company IT dept. had to show me how to use it over a two week period. By the time I knew what I was doing, I had over 100 company e-mails to answer, and a grumpy CEO sending me mail asking why I had not responded. My only piece of equipment I can use without consulting the instruction book is the TV remote. :lol:
But honestly these days phones are asking over people's lives, friends come to your house, they no longer greet you with a hug or handshake, it's now what's your WiFi passcode, I just shout out a false one after I have shown them the gate. :lol:

Embrace the technology you luddites, :up therin lies your salvation once you learn how to power it and use it correctly. :mrgreen:

I've had an IPad for 3 years and still don't know how to send photos with an e mail. It was only a few weeks ago I learned to double click and get the pages running in the background off with the help of Skype and my daughter. The problem is because I don't have a lot of interest in IT when people tell me things I have a tendency to forget how to do it a week or so later. My grandson is a wizard, Mobile stuck to one ear, IPad to the other and a laptop strapped to his Teezak. :lol:

Google and Youtube are your friend Major Thom.
for example, I wanted to replace the pollen filter on my wife's car yesterday and could not figure it out by looking at the car
2 minutes later on Google which led me to a Youtube video which showed me exactly what to do.

In this day and age, you no longer need books to study from, and you certainly cannot run a search utility through a book to find exactly what you are looking for.
No, today we have videos which is so much simpler, but many books have been digitised so you can still read them, but now you can put search patterns into them if you want to look for something specific.

I have predicted many things about the technological and the Internet age, and most of them have come true. Check that, ALL of them have come true... :ct
When I was a kid I hated skool, I had a genuine fear as I was pushed through the arched doors of that school up in the Dales.
All I wanted to do was get away from my family explore the world by the time I was 5.
Skools will be redundant soon, once you learn to read and write, the technology can do the rest.

I can see the day fast approaching that a young child can be given a smart phone and sent off into the big wide world all on their own.

That last statement requires a lot of positive perusal as to how, and indeed why...

Schools will remain important because they bring people together and (in theory) teach them to socialise. Technology tends to keep people apart, at least physically, but has many uses.
