“D-a-a-A-A-D´. . . it’s Really Not That Difficult.” Oh, Yeah?!?

It’s never a good sign when you need  a diagram to make sense of something.

In my case, having cleverly devised the bright, yellow grid (above) to crack Apple’s perplexing (to me**) code . . . I was feeling rather proud of myself. 

That is, until my 16-year old daughter summarily informed me that: 1) there’s no such thing as an “Airpad”; 2) the iPod is a dinosaur and mostly gone; and 3) just for my information, there is also something called an “iPad Air.”

All together: “A-a-r-g-h!!”

P.S.: My proposal, at least for the >50 year-old set: if it goes in your ear, it’s called an “ear bud”; if you use it to read while holding it in your lap, it’s called a “tablet.”
