My complaint may be an age thing—my age, that is. I’ve been word processing for a mighty long time (I had an Apple C). I kind of understand that things have to change; I’m talking about marketing. I know that if companies stayed with a good thing, there would be nothing to sell! Madison Avenue doesn’t mean a thing any more (you have to have been around for a long time just to know what I’m referring to).
Okay, enough of that. I’m going to keep a sharp eye out for the bill to renew (pay for) the Microsoft Word program. I have to be alert so I can click ‘No thank you,” and not be charged for another year.
While I wait I’m going to give Pages, the word processing program that comes free with Macs, a try. When I bought this computer last summer, my son-in-law, who knows a great deal about computers, told me to forget Word and go with Pages. But I wasn’t ready to give up what I was used to, what was part of my computer DNA. Finally, I’m listening.
(I’m writing this on Pages and love how easy it is save on my desktop. I’m not certain that it has the NoteBook features, but the other features seem more accessible.)
