I am neither high tech nor low tech. I am slow tech.
Gone are the days when my parents sent me to the neighbors so I could install their Betamax VCRs and teach them how to use them. That might have been my tech savvy high, actually.
Now I work my way slowly through the process of learning new devices never quite mastering them before they become obsolete.
My laptop is falling apart, so I am afraid to take it in my one allotted carry-on for my Thanksgiving holiday. I decided, finally, that I should keep the iPad I won, and learn how to use it before departing.

WordPress and iPad seem incompatible. Editing the many typos is a Herculean task. Inserting images is headache inducing. I can’t insert links because I can’t figure out how to cut and paste. I’m giving up for the day and using the laptop to complete this post after hours of frustration. I am leaving that one sentence for you to see my raw iPad capabilities.
Is there an App for age induced incompetence? Hints, anyone?
