This morning while reading a magazine I wanted to read something which was on a tiny frame on the page. I found my self getting frustrated because I couldn't 'open' the picture and bring it larger by sweeping my thumb and finger across it. I then remembered it was a magazine and not my i-phone oops blush

My two year old grandaughter did the same thing to a picture in her mum's magazine. Hilarious! grin

My two year old gd sometimes holds up the house phone to show me something, she can't understand why we don't see each other on it. grin

I have often done that with my laptop screen, flower. I had thought about buying one with a touch screen, but didn't!

We have Sky plus on our tv so can pause and rewind stuff. Sometimes when I am out with DH in the car and we see something interesting as we are driving along, I think to myself 'I'll just rewind that'. blush I think we are all 'technologied' out smile

MiniMouse Wed 16-Jul-14 17:53:41

KatyK Yes, I've done that, too blush I'd forgotten until you mentioned it! There's obviously no hope for some of us grin

Oh I do try to change the channels on TV with my mobile too. Must be an age thing.

In the car I try to close windows with the CD control buttons.

Flower i have done similar things with these techno gadgets.

I'm sure I've mentioned this before but I was walking round the living room for ages the other week looking for the remote control. It was in my hand.

I've tried changing channels with the phone as well. To be fair, they're both black and similar size and sit side by side on my table.
Well that's my excuse!

We used to have remote controlled dimmer switches and the TV remote used to turn the lights up and down but could I hell make the light switch remote change the channel on the TV grin
