    I am giving her the benefit of the doubt because I am not sure she actually did. I guess I question her comprehension of things at times.

    What kind of silly thread is this. He was joking.

    I don't like President Obama's politics, but I do feel he is a smart and fairly honest man.

    This is nothing but partisan hackery.

    Not completely unbelievable.

    Personally, I DO know how to you and IPod...but I have no idea how an Ipad works, I can't stand Imacs, I don't know how to use a playstation, and Xbox.
    I can't even make my DVD player work. I probably could if I took the time to figure it out, but its not that important to me. I only watch movies with my spouse or I watch them on my computer.

    He's slightly older than me, which means that he'll be turning to his kids for assistance on a regular basis. I'm more technologically adept than most of my peers, fwiw.

    Well, you know, she is from the Galilean Fishing Posse.

    p.s. In the future, could you provide poll selections that are less impacted by your personal biases, Mel?

    Obama is known for his blackberry, though, so he's not completely computer illiterate; I'm sure he could learn all those things easily enough ... as could I. But that doesn't make his statement a lie.
    I would have to have the techs at my company set up my blackberry. It's not that I'm not smart enough to figure it out, it's that it's not high on my list of priorities, and that's what they're paid for. I-pods are pretty damn easy, though. They're basically plug & play.

    Just for a point of reference, I am 4 years younger than him, and I struggle at times with the new technology. I have only had a cell phone for about a year, and my brother still has to show me tricks on using it. Ipad, Ipod, I barely even know what they are.

    Only engineers and computer programers understand today's technology, definitely nor politicians.

    Not really. Understanding how to operate a device like an phone or music player is mostly a matter of just spending a little time figuring it out. I don't understand why older folks often seem incapable of doing simple things to learn about their devices like reading the manual or doing a google search.
