A Kindleis upon us!
I've complained that audiobooks, although I love them, don't allow for convenient booknapping. e-books, however, allow readers to highlight, make notes, bookmark, and search the entire text for a phrase--a booknapper's dream.
Perhaps we are moving one step closer toward my ultimate wish: a Find function for life. Do you use the secret codes in Microsoft Word? Like control S is save, and control X is cut, and control Z is undo, and control Y is redo, and so on and so on and so on.
Control F is my favorite. Yes, I am aware how dorky that makes me sound, but I've embraced my dorkdom--I mean, I have a blog, for Pete's sake. Control F brings up the "find" function, as in Find where Character Zero said "I wrote her off for the tenth time today," and boom, the 'puter locates it.
My point: I often wish I had control F in life. When I can't find my keys and I'm late for work, when I know there was peanut butter in the kitchen but now there's not, when I put the cell phone in the fridge: I scream "Control F!" Husband thinks this is my dorky way of saying the F-word, but really I am just wishing I lived in the Matrix.
So do you, and YES, I realize how dorky I am being, have a favorite computer function? Tell me. Tell me. Tell me.
