Weekly Photo Challenge: FUTURE TENSE

What a promise is made here!

iPhone capture at the Apple Store

Bring your software and hardware problems to the Apple Store, and here at the Genius Bar, they will be solved —

Come to the Apple Store for a personal training session with one of the Creatives, and you will learn the intricacies of the iPhone, the iPod, the iPad, the MacBook Pro —

Enter an illiterate in the brave new world of computers, and you will leave enlightened —

The Apple Store makes bold promises, and keeps them. The future is here right now! Β The Hub and I are usually the oldest living beings in the store, but they welcome us and we’re thrilled to be there. Go, Apple!

    Ack, my 78million yr old mother bought herslef a Mac yast year…way too much computer for her. And who’s stuck taking those lessons to teach her? Me, that’s who! I hate the genius bar…but absolutely love your interpretation. πŸ™‚

      As an old saying says, No good deed goes unpunished.
      The MAC is way too much computer for anyone I know, certainly for me. But like another old saying has it, Take what you want and leave the rest. Encourage her to do so!!! Do so yourself!!!
      Have you tried fobbing, no, strike that, introducing her to the Creatives directly? I’m 78, and they manage to deal with me.
      (The Hub, who’s even older, says they deal with him too! I mean the Creatives who do the 1 to 1 training sessions, where it’s just your mom and a trainer.)

    Now that is a clever take on the prompt!

    good for you…and hub…for keeping up with the future… πŸ™‚

    And for people who are a bit aversive to technology, sometimes the future feels tense, too. I love that you are getting good coaching from the geniuses!

  5. I bet my IPad can do things only the genius people know. Hmmm…

  6. I just love it!! There’s hope for us old technophobes!!!

    Like all the others, I totally love your take on this week’s challenge!

    I’ve never been to an Apple store. Up until less than a year ago, I had no real urge to see one either, as I wasn’t an ‘Apple person’. Now I am!!! There is one in QC, but that opened after we’d moved … I’ve heard that they’ll open in Halifax and Fredericton. The latter is only one hour’s drive from here so, that will definitely be a possibility.

    Since I got this pad, I’ve hardly used the laptop al all!

    It’s so good to hear that you guys are enjoying the technology!

      If a great (or even just good) restaurant graces Fredericton, and an Apple Store opens there —
      you’re all set!
      Day trips for stomach and head are A Good Thing.

      • rebekah says:

        I think they have some good restos there — it’s the capital of this province. I’ve been there a couple of times. It’s nice there, unless it’s Summer.

      • Touch2Touch says:

        Hoo hoo, you’re ahead of me there, guru!
        I’m way behind you in learning my iPad. You give me incentive!
        (Why is summer not so nice in Fredericton? I always expect summer to be better, except maybe in Tucson, Arizona.)

      • rebekah says:

        Too hot! It’s way inland. I was there once in July and I thought I was going to die!

  8. I like your post. I’m ambidextrous, I use a Mac at work and an HP at home. Trust me when I tell you, it is a case of – a jack of all trades, a master of none.

  9. I’ve been a “Mac” since 1988, and love all of my Apple products. I wonder, often, though, if we’re heading in the right direction with all of this technology. It IS wonderful, but seems to me it should come with some kind of How-To (balance your technology use) Manual.

    • Touch2Touch says:

      As a society, re balance and common sense — fuggedabout it.
      But as an individual, you plainly balance use of the most modern technology with love and embrace of ancient nature.
