Unlike some people, i.e. Frank Radice, I am one who is slow to embrace new technology. I admit it, my name is Antonietta Pace and I’m a tech shy teacher.
I know, it may seem strange for a teacher to be tech shy and too stubbornly set in her ways at times to learn something new. Perhaps it is because I was born a stubborn Taurus. As a result of this apprehension, I usually purchase a new gadget about 3 weeks before the new model is announced to hit shelves! And I pay the price dearly.
Case in point, I got a new iPhone 3G in May 2009, 3 weeks before the 3GS came out. So, of course, I convince the Apple store to give me the new one, before realizing I haven’t backed up my phone properly and lose EVERYTHING! I’m actually forced to get the iPhone 4 now, a few months before the iPhone 5 comes out because my poor 3GS has suffered its final drop on the floor… and before I backed it up all the way!
That’s okay. I have my iPad to keep me company until then, which I got in February 2011, 3 weeks before the iPad 2 came out! I guess this goes to show that I’m not visiting MethodShop nearly enough! Well, anyway, Happy 15th Birthday to everyone at MethodShop.com!
