In my weekly post, “3D Wald Stein 224 Stair Risers Dekoration Fototapete Vinyl Aufkleber Tapete DE“, 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 Weben Kunst bluemen 453 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete WandgemäldeIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. 3D Wald Strom 3346 Stair Risers Dekoration Fototapete Vinyl Aufkleber Tapete DENow, 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 Wald Tiere See 865 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Bild Familie DE SummerI 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 Weihnachten Bäume, Geschenke 66 Fototapeten Wandbild BildTapete Familie DE 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 Wald Wasserfall 4Stair Risers Dekoration Fototapete Vinyl Aufkleber Tapete DEAs 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 Wald, Wassertiere 7554 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete FamilieThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. 3D Weihnachten Hängende Geschenk Fototapeten Wandbild BildTapete Familie 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 Weihnachten Schnee, Baum 88 Fototapeten Wandbild BildTapete Familie DECould 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 Wald-Engel-Pferd 854 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Bild Familie DE Summer. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. 3D Wälder Kasten Natürlich 9083 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapeten Bild Familie DE Kyra(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 Waldung See 854 Mauer Murals Mauer Aufklebe Decal Durchbruch AJ WALLPAPER DE

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

3D Weihnachtsmann 502 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete Wandgemälde DEThey’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 Wall Mountain Mist 834 Wallpaper Mural Paper Wall Print Wallpaper Murals UK. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.3D Weinglasbluemen 57 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete Wandgemälde DE 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 white rede pink Fototapeten Wandbild FototapeteBild Tapete Familie AJSTORE DEThey 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 wallpaper xxxl non-woven home wall decor mural art graffiti 10110905-53Unlike 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 Wandern Elefanten 967 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie 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 Warm und schön Giraffe Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie DEWe 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 Wasser Bambus Lotusblatt 2 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete FamilieWe 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 Wasser Reiher 472 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Familie Kinde DE LemonWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • 3D whitee Blätter Pflanze 23 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Familie Kinde DEGiven 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 Wasserfall Landschaft 58 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete Wandgemälde

Like MacOS not liking the ALT key but uses the Windows/Super key instead for some tasks. 3D whitee Pferd Sternwolke 89 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Familie Kinde DEOr the difference between a backspace key and a delete key.3D Wasserfälle, pool 2546 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie DE 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 whitee villen am Meer 59055 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie
  • 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 Water City Painting Paper Wall Print Wall Decal Wall Deco Indoor Murals.

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 water green stone 169 Floor WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal 5D AJ WALLPAPER 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.
