I watch Amazon from any device I can. It isn't unusual for me to lie in bed on the heating pad due to back issues, with a pillow propped on my chest and the Kindle opened to the landscape view in order to watch movies or TV shows. I have a cover for the Kindle, so it rests securely when the cover is opened. Binge watching is so much fun!
I do have an app to watch both Netflix and Amazon on the main TV. I have a box for Amazon Prime on my bedroom TV. I have a Lazyboy and a lap-table to hold the laptop when watching on the MacBook Pro. Talk about convenience! It is so much easier to watch programs and catch up on past episodes using a variety of devices. Much better than, say, a black and white TV in the living room surrounded by a bunch of people. No remote control, four basic channels and often grainy reception. Don't let anyone tell you the "good old days" were the fifties and sixties. Not!
Lol,.for some reason, reading this, I want to say "you kids these days with your latest technology"... I had always wondered how does one work a long time with a laptop on their lap, since soemtimes I just use my pillow, but when I saw those lap-tables actually exist, it was so amazing. Though, I never got it because it's like I don't want to then have to get out to remove it. You would have to have subscriptions for all of these though right? Do you have cable along with it or just depend on these? Or is that the case for the four basic channels on the living room TV but uptodate one on your bedroom with channels?
I have Direct TV, movie channels, Amazon Prime and Netflix. I have bunches of movies I watch over and over on the DVR.
I have always had the latest technology. During the seventies I used a computer at work that had a single function, no internal memory and no delete key. When a bill was printed out I had to use liquid "white out" to correct mistakes.
My next job didn't have a computer, and I needed to work with a lot of numbers, so hubby bought me an electric calculator with a cord for the outlet for a mere $75.00. Now they are free on phones, computers and online. When the first video console came out it played one game. Pong. It, too, was $75.00. The kids loved it! Of course, they were only two and three at the time. An older neighbor child played the game with them and lost. He went home and told his mom my kids cheated. She was furious and came stomping over and put her finger in my face and yelled at me for having cheating children. I just looked at her, paused, then explained they couldn't cheat because what the kids played was an electronic video game. She had no idea what I was talking about. I had to sit her down and show her what a video game was.
Pong led to Atari and Intelivision, etc., computers by 1982 (again, no internal memory and programs had to manually installed for each use), using a form of the Internet in 1986 (only three dollars an hour!), car phones, then a cell phone and on and on.
I'll give up electronics when they are pried from my cold, dead hands
So many! Interestingly, I have a few movies recorded on our PVR from when they were showed on tv along with some other ones and some old version of DVDs that I had. I love to sometimes put on Mr. Bean and watch it. :')
My dad did show me how to use those electric typewriters and yes, I do very much like white outs. But can't use them a lot here. :<
I wasn't really good at all things electronics/computers like kids are nowadays. My cousin(s) were. Still remember when I saw Photoshop and Corel. >_> Also, I suck at most to all video games. Like, not even that basic jumping Mario. Current Playstation/xbox is a mystery to me though.
Oh, oh, also telephone connected internet. That was such fun!
It was in the theater, as my friends took me out on my 20th and 21st birthday(for part 1 and 2) . It just happened to be playing in my local area so we all decided to watch it and then head to my place for some gaming and drinks. Plus, I have very crappy internet so i-tunes movies were out(it would take three days to down-load it. Not joking).
