Trials with Technology part 2!

Now, I can find my way around a computer, a phone, the internet etc. and all the other trappings of the modern electronic age. Yet I still know absolutely nothing really about technology. I grew up as the technology did – yes we did have a computer when I was at primary school, but there was only one single BBC one to share between the whole school. When I was at senior school we had enough for one between two for a class of 30ish. Now my daughter’s primary school has enough for a whole class to have one each during I.T. (sorry – I.C.T.) lessons! And we have two computers at home AND two mobiles that can view the internet. The upshot is that things have definitely changed!

Normally I don’t mind – I like being able to use the internet and my phone whenever I want. But if it comes to specifics I’m lost. I started looking into taking card payments at fairs and shows – what an enormous can of worms that was! So many options and so many specifics. Should I use WorldPay, Mpowa, PaypalHere (or more to the point NOT here!)? Should I use swipe and sign, chip and pin, manual entry? Izettle, WorldPay, or some other things I forget the name of? Which phone will these work with? Which version of a phone do I need? What coverage will I have at events? Agggggggggghhhhhhhhhh – it all adds up to a huge headache and several wasted hours.

I’m going back to making my jewellery – it’s much simpler! I think I’ll go back to using beans as currency instead!
