High Technology

Friday, October 18, 2019

I’m struggling with the transition from droid to IOS after going for a trio of Apple products, including a Watch, iPhone, and just for the heck of it, an iPad, and why not? After all, these items are designed to communicate seamlessly. The rub is that the desktop computer I always use runs on Microsoft. The droid and Apple systems differ enough to be confusing. Particularly in a user’s early learning stages.

In years before, I’ve gone for IOS because Apple is so touted by users, but always returned the products. I’ve just preferring droid software. Maybe droid is less innovative and flexible, but after years with it I’m quick and achieve what I want…mostly, until now.

Recently, Apple leaped ahead with me because it fills a space that’s needed. As a person who works daily around and with horses, I worry about stumbling and falling, maybe doing enough self-damage to need help. If I fell and were too dazed to operate my cellphone, what might happen? The Apple Watch and iPhone can provide emergency assistance. The watch has mechanisms to sense when a wearer lands hard and in an horizontal position. A fallen wearer has a few seconds to tell the watch there’s no problem; otherwise, the watch through its associated iPhone alerts designated helpers and emergency personnel, and its GPS capabilities add an accurate location.

So, I’m slogging through a transition, and hopefully for a long while won’t have to do this again.

  1. Keep on truckin’. I guess we are all wired differently. I could not adapt to my Google phone and bought my way out of owning it! For better or worse, we are an Apple family.🙋❤
