I loved this!
Yeah, I finally got on Facebook, but figured out how to VERY SEVERELY restrict it all to immediate family. Period. I keep getting requests to "friend" people but I ignore them. Maybe I'll lose friends???
No GPS, either. We use (sssshhhhh... ) MAPS for trips. My wife navigates and I drive. Simple.
Laptop? Well, this is one because I needed a new PC. (My poor old Dell downstairs is REALLY slooow nowadays.) So our son gave me this one. Kind of nice.
SIRI? My son uses her/him/it/whatever. Weird.
Cordless phone? Yes, we do have one of those. Nice. However, make sure you also have a hardwired on in the house! If you only have wireless, and you lose power... no more phone.
We also have an ancient Tracfone for occasion al use. Usually levft off. I recharge it on rare occasions when we know one of the kids will need to contact us on a trip -- or if we really, really want to call a B&B en route.
Tweet? Nope - no Twitter. Don't even know how to do that! Fart? Yeah - I do know how to do that!
