…….that is if you understand how to use it. My case in point.
I’m making a long drive today, alone. My wife listens to audio books very often when she drives. She swears it really makes time and the trip pass by faster. She suggested I download some books to listen to while I drive.
I figured her suggestion had a dual purpose. Besides making my trip go faster, it would keep me from listening to the news so much. I don’t know where she ever got the idea that I’m a news junkie, but we shall not even delve into that.
I started down the road and had the book on the CarPlay. It’s the one I thought she was most highly recommending. She had even said how much she enjoyed the narration of that book.
I wasn’t ready to give up on the book but it did seem to drag. Many times as you get deep in a book things will get better. That wasn’t the case. The farther I drove the drowsier I felt. By the time I got to Austin I decided maybe I just needed something to eat. Yeah, eat something and that will wake me up.
As I got out to go in the place I grabbed my AirPods, and thought maybe I’d listen a bit during my down time. Or maybe I could find a more lively book to listen to.
I ordered my food, and started messing with my iPhone and the AirPods. Within a few seconds I discovered why that book was dragging, why it droned on and on. Once I switched the play from 0.5 speed to 1.00 speed, it became a more lively voice to be listening to.
What the hell is wrong with me?
One thought on “Technology Is So Great…….”
You ask “what the hell is wrong with me?” I wonder if your wife has any clues, and whether they might be related to her impression that you listen to too much news.
