    I think the title speaks for itself.

    It was like bringing tools to indigenous peoples that had never thought of such a thing.

    She was amazed.

    Just imagine it. I know you can.

    She has a RAZR M and had no idea that was possible. Then I had to explain what Chrome was because someone else had told her he uses it all the time. Haha!

    Lmao! She's not that old, but that's pretty close. She was amazed.

    I showed her how she can check the weather, flip a coin, & find out how old Betty White is.

    That is way cool...good job spreading the Android goodness! And she has good taste in phones (I had 4 in my family at one time).

    Both of the ladies that work for her doing fundraising & taking donations use iphones, so I'm always worried they'll convert her. That's why I show her little nuggets like this. Those ladies don't use their phones to their full potential, so it's not hard to keep ahead of them.

    She came into my office because she accidentally moved her clock widget down & it bumped a row of icons up.

    Showed her the g watch too, which is what led to me showing her she could voice search from her phone. She loved it when it talked back. Haha!

    I used to be afraid of nuns, but ours are all laid back & easy to talk to/joke around with.
