I must be a luddite too - I only have a smart phone because someone bought me one for Xmas one year and even then, it was a year before I set it up :)

Ah yes the good old days Vic, t'was rumoured I could break in to a smile, but then just a rumour, first mobile phone, no need to go to the gym when you'd carried that about all day, so cool, look he's got one of those phones, has it got any better, you can't get people of them these days. They are like a life support machine welded to their fingers. Babies are being born with a third eye in the forehead so as they don't walk in to lampposts

It was a revelation to me last summer, when the car broke down fairly definitively in the UK, that with a smartphone and a credit card there are very few situations that you can't get yourself out of! Add in one of those taser things and you're invincible :lol:
Yes, but in the good old days you could probably repair the car enough to get you home with just a bit of string and your missus nylon tights and not bother with the phone or card.

Bit tricky, though, explaining to the missus when eventually you got home as to how you happened to have a pair of her nylons handy when she wasn't with you! :lol:

I just long for the days when we paid over £1000 for a fax machine from the UK because they didn't have them in Spain at a reasonable price, and then Telefonica making us get and pay for a second line when they found out we had it.

They must have paid someone to ring all the numbers and report those which answered with a fax tone.
