Like the idea of sharing stories BUT, I don't own a "smart" phone, don't know how to use a "smart" phone, can't make me learn how to use a "smart" phone. Frankly, I think there should be a law against them because most folks with them can't be too smart and get themselves into problems.....like driving into a school bus, walking into poles, etc because they have these things shoved into their face 24/7/365. Yeah, I still have a flip phone. It's a phone, not the Holy Grail with life's answer on it. Now, back to your regularly scheduled stories.

Useful for sure

It's pretty danged amazing, maybe even a little scary, what those phones are capable of doing. My old breakfast buddy (85) has a flip phone that is just a phone and he will often ask me "does your phone know (this or that)". It always knows as long as the wifi at the restaurant is working. I go to Lincoln Square Pancake House 6 days a week. On Sunday I go to Yia Yai's House of Pancakes (same owner, 5 miles farther away). When I get in the truck Mon-Sat the phone tells me how far it is to Lincoln Square and how long it will take to get there. On Sunday I get the same info on Yia Yia's. When I leave there the phone tells me how far it is to Rural King. What's interesting about that is I never use the phone as a GPS and never ask for the info. It knows more about me than Santa Claus. I'd better watch out, it's tellin' me why! I guess the phone is raggin' me about being a creature of habit. No telling what technology will be available even 10 years from now or how it will intrude into our lives.

There is a tracking app running in your phone and/or computer! The "papers" trail insisted upon by the Gestapo in in WW-II Germany was NOTHING compared to what/where and who you call and what internet sites you visit you're cell phone is reporting - far as you're comings and goings are concerned!:eek::eek:

I accessed it from my tablet, I will try it with one of my computers. I use Gmail for our club email so later today I will try it. I just use a flip phone as all I care about is being able to make a call or receiving a call on my phone.
