Techno-phobic Connected to the Techno Age By Lorraine Penn

What a discovery my husband made recently, by finding a Jawbone Bluetooth ear device that was given to me as a freebie, when I purchased my iPhone 4 two years ago! Yes two years ago! Can you believe it?

Taking on the use of an iPhone 4, sync to other Apple devices, when my previous phone was a basic Nokia mobile wasn't easy for me to master. The Bluetooth device given to me at the time of purchasing my iPhone was something I found too hard, so I put into the office cabinet to investigate later, but hey two years later was not my intention!

After discovering this device, my learned husband, who can certainly read and understand a product manual, enabled my Jawbone Bluetooth earpiece device to sync with the iPhone. Now I am able to talk while driving and of course walking while the phone is in my handbag.

What a wonderful achievement enabling a product to do all these tasks after residing in the office cabinet for two years.

Thanks husband for actually finding it, even though it wasn't actually lost and bringing me into the techno age of using the earpiece when answering my mobile.

Being somewhat techno-phobic I now look like a bogan when I am walking downtown in Regional Coffs Harbour talking to myself.

At least now my husband is skilled enough to take on the latest iPhone 5s device and master its configurations for me.
