    Hi I'm a little bored tonight. Thought some here might enjoy this true story about myself and phones. My daughter and son- in-law were visiting and we were watching TV. My wife is a sports fanatic and were watching a sports event, don't remember which one. The channel kept changing and the volume was going up and down; and my wife had the remote. She was really getting upset and was asking what was going on with the TV. That's when I saw James messing with his phone and he was about to crack up. He had programed his phone to control the TV and was changing the channel and the volume. We all had a good laugh. That's when I decided these new phones were demon possessed . LMAO
    Just kidding,but I was amazed that this was possible to do that with a phone.. Next thing you know, they'll have a phone performing open heart surgery.
    The world is getting crazy! This is a true story. I hope you enjoyed it! Happy holidays to all! I hope the new year will find you well and prosperous and active on Windows Central!!

    Both my current Android phones have programmable remotes that work flawlessly for anything that has a remote in this house :)
    My Windows phones have an app that controls our Xfinity cable via an app.

    These smartphones are a true wonder even if they're a couple of years old.

    Hi friend ! And you want this old country boy to learn how to program these phones and learn all this new technology?
    I'm not sure my brain can handle it. I may have a blow out. Not sure how much more this old brain will tolerate ! LMAO!
    CTRL-ALT- DEL grand pa. Thanks for your reply friend!

    You'll be on phones like a US drone on ISIS :)
    It's easy and fascinating.
    Microsoft, Google and Apple make the mobile experience easy for almost anyone that still has fingers.
    ...and if you're missing fingers there's voice input via Cortana, Google voice or Siri.

    I like the larger screen devices since my eyes aren't very good these days...

    My screens are a little too complex, yet they don't have to be.
    Phone on the left is the Lumia 640XL on WM10 at 5.7 inches (good for bad eyes)
    Phone on the right is the venerable Nokia Lumia 925 at 4.7 running WP 8.1 (beautiful device not available anymore)
    Both are at the very least good camera phones.

    Lots and lots of fun to be had with Windows on a phone.
    It's the reason a lot of folks landed here on WC which used to be Window Phone Central.

    Hi friend! You are totally a gem! I had cataract surgery on both eyes. One for close and one for far. I now have 20-20 and threw away my glasses, so I don't have that problem.
    Good news about Aleppo. I fell so sorry for those people. I only hope the drones find the bad guys. IDK
    Thanks for your reply friend. It's old Okie's bed time. You almost have me convinced to get a phone! (Almost) LMAO.
    Good night friend! see you on the forum!
    PS This is my thread and I give everyone permission to get off topic if you want to!
