I turned 51 yesterday! DH is 60, but we both act about 25! lol

My Kindle was my birthday present, even though I got it on Sept. 18.

Hey Theresa51!  You got it as an early birthday present too!  Ha!  My 'magic book' was from my brother, and I got at the start of October...kinda early for a girl (yes, I am a female...everyone thinks I'm a male just because of my name) whose birthday is at the end of November.  Oh well, I'm not complaining. :)  So I'm a sagittarius who is currently 27 soon to be 28.  Though everyone who see me think I'm 13 or 12.*sigh* ::)

    76 years young.   Trying to keep up with technology.  It ain't easy.  I just bought an MP3 player this week because I wanted to know what it is.  Also sent a text message to see what all the hype is about that.  Asked my nephew what an IPOD is and he demonstrated his to me.   NOW  HELP,  what is a blackberry besides something to put in a cobbler???

    You go girl!  And you're right, it ain't easy keeping up with technology....

    I have to say, I don't get text messaging...the grandkids all love it!

    A blackberry is a multi-purpose device that includes a cellphone, text messager, web browser, games, etc. If you've read anything about the iPhone, the blackberry is a major competitor. From what I understand, one of the advantages of the blackberry over the iPhone is that it does a much better job with sending and receiving email, especially from corporate networks.

    I like texting, if you have a device that's easy to text from.

    But really, I like my Kindle best of all!

    DORI...I must have laughed for 5 minutes and I still chuckle everytime I think of your message...too funny! 

    Hubby and I both have Blackberry cell phones, but they also do a lot more than just make a call, they keep your appointments (I forget everything) so I can't live with out my bells ringing me reminders for: dog's heartworm meds, kitty's eardrops, my doc and dental appts, birthdays, and such...quite a helper.   Welcome aboard!!!

    As I said earlier in this thread, I'm 58. And Dori, you have me beat! I still don't know hardly anything about MP3 players and IPODs. All I know is they have something to do with music!! I am a little curious because I recently had to replace my bookshelf stereo system and the replacement has a place where I can plug in an MP3 thingie or an IPOD. But I'm in the dark there! When I find music I like, I buy the CD and play it on the system at home or in my car.

    hehheh..and with the back button, you are two clicks between the Good Book and something else (click Home, then the other book you want to read (I'm sure a critical commentary on the Gospels), then back, back to return to the Good Book.

    Yeah, sounds like a very intrusive question. I was just wondering what the average age of Kindle users is, cause I seem to be one of the youngest on this website. (I'm 19).

    Are you always this mean?  ;D I'm 50+ and that's all I'll admit to, but my heart age is 22. Wish we could turn back our odometers the some cars can.

    I am 23 - sadly though most people think I am much younger (I've been asked if I'm 16, 14, even 12....)  ;)
    I guess it's probably because I don't wear makeup.
    HOWEVER I will love that when I am in my 40's!!

    I get that too, but I'm 19. It's sometimes sad when I went to order flower for prom with a bunch of friends and my best friend and her boyfriend kissed (a quick peck) and the flourist told them "not in front of the kids". Immeditately turned to my shorter friend, but we quickly realized that the flourist was talking about me. She said she thought I was 12...I was a senior in high school and older than all my friends.

    Oh man, I get that too - last year when I worked in a grocery store I was asked by a man if I was "really old enough to work there". Heh heh.. ::)

    Some actually asked me: "Are you sure you're 19?" when I was buying cigarettes (I've quited since then). I was like...I know how old I am.
