ON THE BACK BURNER

April 3

Years ago, I heard the expression," the computer is only as smart as the person doing the input". Actually, I don't know what that means. It sounds like I do when, the few times that  I have used it, the person that I am saying it to, seems in agreement. To that end, I was trying to get my tablet to respond to me. I almost always use my iPad, but I have a tablet( I think that is what it is) for its larger screen . I don't have a TV , so I thought that I needed this new screen so that I can watch ,mostly , movies . I could not get my tablet to do anything. It was frozen. I kept pressing the screen, like I do with my iPad. I pushed all of the keyboard. Nothing. Frozen. My iPad has a touch screen. Everything that I do on it ,involves my using the touch screen. My tablet has a keyboard. I asked my grandson to stop by after work and before he went home. He did. Duhhhh. I was trying to get the tablet to work by trying to touch the screen. As soon as I used the curser, it worked. How dumb was that.
