Or they are the people who hear about more efficient or maybe more cost-effective ways to do things but they stick with their current methods because they are afraid of the new technology.

  • So true! This really reminds me I need to learn how to use my camera! I have no idea where the manual is but I'm sure I can download it online! Thanks for the reminder!

  • The good thing about not being tech savvy is you are not along & others understand that there are some of us that need a little bit more instructions & visuals to understand technology.....You are so right no excuses!

    • Yes, there is always someone who can help you get more tech savy.

  • I swear you must be talking to me. I am not tech savvy but I have realized that if I continue to at least try, I will get it. Half my problem is that I don't like to bother people to help me. Some will help once, but if you continue to "not get it" they get short with you. Hence it causes me to be apprehensive. I am working on this for sure.

    • Keep working on getting tech savvy, sometimes it is fun to learn to use new devices and gadgets. And, if one group of people gets sick of helping you, go on and get another group to help you. Don't give up.

  • I like to take the "seize the technology and figure it out" approach. And by "seize" I mean, pass it off to my husband, lol.

    • I used to use that approach too, until I drove my husband crazy one time too many. Now he won't let me pass it off. I do miss those days.

  • I hate the learning curve that comes along with it, but I usually embrace whatever it is after some exposure.

    • The learning curve is probably what keeps people from keeping up with new technologyu. Especially if what they have is doing the job.

  • I'm not usually tech savvy but I sure try to be!

  • I'm more tech savvy than I usually give myself credit for, but honestly I'm a big fan of having geek friends. :)

    • True, it is nice to have geek friends! They are very useful.

  • I think at one point we were all not so tech savvy. We learn as new gadgets come out.

  • I am one of the least tech savvy people around! I am always having to learn something new. Just as soon as I learn it, there is something else! Oh well, keeps my mind fresh!

    • Yes, if you try to keep up with technology, your mind will stay fresh and active.
