On Tuesday, as I waited at the Heart Institute for my regular echocardiogram, I had the following brief conversation with the older gentleman sitting beside me.
Me: Is that a Playbook?
Him: I don't play! This is an ipad!
Me: Oh. I was just curious about the Blackberry version of the tablet.
Him (scornfully): Do you have a Blackberry?
Me: I do.
I didn't bother explaining that I don't find touch screens to be intuitive and that I prefer an actual keyboard for sending emails and texting. Instead, I pulled out my knitting, thus eradicating all doubt that I was the Luddite in our conversation.
