I'm with Kira on this one. Computers, voice-mail, ATMs, etc. - these are all new-fangled things that we are now quite accustomed to using.

My Dad still doesn't understand how a computer works (or why I spend so much time on mine!), has never had an ATM card and hates to leave me voice-mail.

So maybe it is a generational thing, to some degree. But I think that if you don't go with it, you fall behind. And I think that we are the better sometimes for knowing the old way and the new way. (Some younger folks can't add in their heads without a calculator.)

While not everything new is better, sometimes everything old is new again. Think about it!
