Today you can preview everything online. Make your decision, proceed to pay with your credit car or paypal, whatever you have and that is all you have to do. Even greyhaired golden oldies can do it. In the current situation with the attackers from another world, known as corona or Covid, we have discovered the online way of living. We can even order our dinner online from the restaurant around the corner, with three different menus a day to choose from, so what could be better.
I was at the point of despair at the week-end as the letter “r” on my Mac refused to work without a coaxing thump on the keyboard and that was annoying. How could I refresh my computer page without a “control R”, but that is now a thing of the past. I was advised by some collegial fellow bloggers to order a new keyboard and so I took the plunge and on Sunday evening, after a browse around I online shopped a new keyboard.
I have my own favourite online shop in Switzerland and registered some time ago. The problem is that everyone is ordering online. The entrance to our block is full of parcels in the morning. The neighbours order food, elctronic devices, underwear, even cosmetics online. They are mostly articles that you cannot buy publicly at the moment due to a lockdown, but online has not yet been locked down.
As said I ordered on Sunday and yesterday was advised that my parcel had already left the sellers and was on its way to me. Imagine the suprise when I discovered it this morning at the entrance, together with a king sized parcel for my neighbour, from the same online deliverer. I unpacked my new treasure and within 5 minitues I had a new perfectly operating keyboard on my computer. As it is a complete replica of the old keyboard I could just place it on top of the old keyboard and it is working perfectly.
I now have ideas of purchasing a keyboard for my iPad, although I am just thinking about it. Do I really need it? Not really, but this online ordering really has its advantanges. I just previewed 5 different keyboards for my iPad and now I am spoiled for choice.
