    Yeah, I guess it’s true most people are windows users. But why does the panel show the kid using an etch a sketch?

    I still have mine…I was never that good at making pictures on it, but I have seen some people do really wonderful work.

    That was our first laptops back in the ’60’s.

    Now they probably have made it into an app.

    You’re talking about Pluggers’ kids…..real Pluggers never had those fancy gadgets when they were young.

    My grandsonasked me what type of video games I had as a kid. After I got out of ICU for laughing so hard, I explained how we had “plikes”. You know “Plike this” or “Plike that” and toys made out of things like a corn cob with chicken feathers stuck in one end to make whirley-gigs.

    I catch myself at times to realize that voting age adults have never know a world without the Internet.

    because to use it a kid would occasionally have it on their lap…just like you do with a laptop today.

    i, for one, could never get the hang of an etch-a-sketch. i had one back when i was 10 but it eventally wound up with the rest of the toys i paid little attention to. i was far more interested in my matchbox cars, my Beatles cards and my record collection.

    Just checked, and indeed they have for Apple… and there are many other, more sophisticated apps along the same lines. :)

    Sigh. I’m still trying to understand how all this tech is such a good thing for the general population. Pretty soon they will have to rewrite Alice in Wonderland, and instead of the Queen saying off with their heads, it will be written ,off with their thumbs. That will be the only way to truly horrify future readers.

    I loved my matchbox cars until my father took them away from me because “I didn’t look after them”. I found them many years later, out of the boxes and rusty in the shed.

    Newsweek had an article about that recently. They said too much online activities has proven to reduce the size of the brain. My brain better not get any smaller or I’ll be in even more trouble.

    Ha. My mother was like that. She had a problem with my baseball cards and baseball mitt that were solved by selling them at her rummage sale.
