My kids have moved out, I am retired, and these days, if you do not have any of the gadgets that people say help make life easier, you won’t get much done. Gone are the times when shopping simply meant going to the store in a car, and choosing from the merchandise that you see there, and taking these home with you (after paying for it, of course). Gone also are the times when you did not know everything, and was not expected to know everything.
Now, everything is on the internet. All you need to live a comfortable, informed life is a computer and an internet connection.
