Making the Miles Fade
Using your smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop to bring you closer to friends and family who live far away (and those who don’t)
Possibly the best thing technology (tablets, phones and computers) can do for you is help you keep in touch with family and friends.
I don’t just mean letting you send emails instead of writing paper letters, though that can be handy.
Almost like you’re there…
There are so many ways you can use these tablets, phones and PCs to make it almost like you’re there – like you’re actually with your family and friends, even when you’re not.
Amongst other things, this book covers…
- The 6 ways you can use your techie gadgets to stay in touch – you probably don’t want all of them, but different ways work better for different situations.
- How you could see your nephew’s winning goal in a school football match and share opinions on it with his Mum and Dad, Aunt Maud in Harrogate and Uncle Bob in South Africa all at the same time.
- WhatsApp – a great way to discuss things in a group (maybe a group of friends, or a family group or…) – whether it’s to just chat or plan something like a family reunion.
- Video calling. I can remember the first time I used Skype to make a video call – it was like magic, even though back then it didn’t work very well. Now, it can work so much better and I use it loads. Skype isn’t necessarily your best option though – more on that here.
It’s amazing, the different ways these gadgets can help you be closer to people who don’t live that close to you (or even those who do). The ways to share a moment (long or short) with people who you aren’t with at that moment.
