In my weekly post, “3D Vier Helden Tiere 779 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie“, I like to include a photo of something that I’ve taken from the previous week.

There was a time when I’d put my original camera around my neck and go looking for things to take pictures of. 3D Wasser, whitee Blüten 23 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete FamilieIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. 3D View Clouds 5 Ceiling WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal Deco AJ WALLPAPER AUNow, with the camera in my Smartphone, I always have the ability to take pictures in my pocket. It’s funny how many more pictures that I feel inspired to take this way. And better ones too.

Anyway, last week I was rolling up the solar blanket to the pool and noticed a spider in this huge web over my shoulder. 3D vigne Fleur Mer Photo Papier Peint en Autocollant Murale Plafond Chambre ArtI watched for a minute until I realized what she/he was doing. The spider was traversing the web picking up the things that got caught during the night before.3D Wasserfall 5235 Mauer Murals Aufklebe Decal Durchbruch AJ WALLPAPER DE Lemon My mind flashed back to elementary school science where we learned how a spider doesn’t get stuck in its own web.

I was pleased with the picture as I got as close as I could to get a definition of the spider and the things caught in the web. 3D Villa am See 224 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete FamilieAs per my regular routine, I took 2 or 3 pictures of the same thing so that I could get the best picture lest I move the camera while taking the picture.

Anyway, that’s the background for this post!

When I write my Sunday post, my routine was to grab the camera on my desk and flip through what I had taken and find one to include. 3D Villa Scenario Parete Murale Foto Carta da parati immagine sfondo muro stampaThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. 3D Wasserfall See 21Stair Risers Dekoration Fototapete Vinyl Aufkleber Tapete DESince it’s only a task that I do once or twice a week, the inefficiencies kind of bothered me but not enough to do anything about it.

However, in my readings lately on Windows 10, I’ve been reading about the Your Phone abilities. For the most part, the writers were excited about the concept of texting from your computer keyboard. I wasn’t as excited. 3D water beach sand 160 Floor WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal 5D AJ WALLPAPERCould there be more?

Out of boredom, I installed this on my phone and activated the utility on my computer. Unlike other synchronization things I’ve used, this really was seemless and easy3D Village Painting 005 Wall Paper Wall Print Decal Wall Deco Wall Indoor Murals. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. 3D Ville Autobus 15 Photo Papier Peint en Autocollant Murale Plafond Chambre Art(As well as the thunderstorm clouds coming in from Boblo Island)

To work on the post, there was none of this sending the picture to myself. I just grabbed it from the Your Phone app and bam, it was in my post.

I remember Arthur C. Clarke’s quote…

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

I had that moment!

I just wish that I’d done it sooner.

… TV dinner tables?

David Garlick was a week ahead of me on this one with his Twitter response to last week’s post.

Maybe that’s why he was a principal and I wasn’t.3D Vines Petals 57 Wallpaper Murals Wall Print Wallpaper Mural AJ WALL AU Lemon

Yes, there was the concept of the folding TV dinner table. There’s a bunch still for sale –

3D Water Whale 543 Floor WallPaper Murals Wall Print 5D AJ WALLPAPER UK LemonThey’ve gone up in price! And appear to be more solid than the ones in my memory.

Currently, we don’t own a set but I do remember, as a child, of having a set that we kept behind the door going down to the basement3D Vintage Door 8 Wall Paper Exclusive MXY Wallpaper Mural Decal Indoor Wall AJ. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.3D Waterfall 4 Wallpaper Murals Wall Print Wallpaper Mural AJ WALL AU Kyra I stole the idea when furnishing an apartment at university. It was affordable, to be sure, from the second hand store. $5 a set, if I recall correctly.

They weren’t very solid. They appeared to be made of tin and had a flowered pattern on them and fluted edges. 3D Waterfall fish 535 Floor WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal 5D AJ WALLPAPERThey folded up neatly for storage and the concept was to put your dinner/supper on them so that you could watch television while eating. (TV dinners optional). 3D Vintage Straßenstadt 67 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete WandgemäldeUnlike a regular table, they weren’t a permanent addition to a room – just for those special times that you ate supper while watching television.

Or so the story goes…

In both our families like David’s, the television was turned off at meal times and we ate as a family around the kitchen table.3D purple Flowers 758 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Kyra In our case, the dining table was used for special dining occasions when we had company but mostly as a collection point for stuff at other times.

So, why did we have TV tables? For those fancy meals with company, they served as holders for the food as we loaded up buffet style. 3D Violin Fruit Bird 8 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU KyraWe also used them to play games like checkers, Monopoly, on them. But that was about it.

These days, I can’t remember seeing them out for sale in stores so I don’t know if they’re not there or they’re such a seldom-purchased article that they’re largely hidden. 3D Vivace città 2 Parete Murale Foto Carta da parati immagine sfondo muro stampaWe do see them when we’re out antiquing and it does bring back childhood memories!

For a Sunday morning, your thoughts?

  • Do you currently own a set of TV dinner tables?
  • Did you have them in your youth?
  • Were you allowed to eat and watch television at the same time?
  • 3D Vögel Bambus Wald 56 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete WandgemäldeWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • 3D Waterfall leaf 523 Floor WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal 5D AJ WALLPAPERGiven their price point and the portability, there has to be all kinds of functionality for these that I’m not aware of. Do you have a unique use for these things?

I could have used this when I got my Chromebook.

Now, a computer is a computer is a computer but there are little gotchas with various operating systems that take a bit of getting used to.3D Von Bäumen gesäumten Weg Fototapeten Wandbild Bild Tapete Familie Kinder

Like MacOS not liking the ALT key but uses the Windows/Super key instead for some tasks. 3D Wave sea starfish 235 Floor WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal 5D AJ WALLPAPEROr the difference between a backspace key and a delete key.3D Vue Sur Lac 3 Photo Papier Peint en Autocollant Murale Plafond Chambre Art They’re easily learned once you set yourself on a path to actually learn them.

I suspect that my learning with a new Chromebook was the same as others.

  • what’s that magnifying glass doing on the CAPS LOCK key?
  • how do you CAPS LOCK anyway?
  • is there a files manager?3D Wavy bluee pinks 73 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Lemon
  • is there a Task Manager?
  • where did all the Function keys go and what do those new symbols mean?

And other things. Of course, they’re all easily found with a simple Google search but they’re all nicely laid out in this 3D Wald Bach 794 Stair Risers Dekoration Fototapete Vinyl Aufkleber Tapete DE.

Work your way though the menu on the left and see the results appear graphically in the main part of the screen. Although I’ve used this Chromebook for a couple of years now, there were still a few new things to learn.3D Wald Fluss 1433 Stair Risers Dekoration Fototapete Vinyl Aufkleber Tapete DE In this case, I learned a few more multiple-finger actions.

You might want to tuck this away as an introductory lesson for Chromebooks in your classroom.
