You Thought Getting Used to the Kindle Was Hard? Try the Codex

I have posted a link to this clip elsewhere but it's so funny (and relevant) I had to do it again here. Yes, it's awful when you have to get used to some newfangled technology for reading. Imagine what it was like when you grew up with scrolls.

(The YouTube post of this clip doesn't cite the original source but I'm told it is the Norwegian TV show Ã˜ystein og jeg.)

Just how I feel with every new piece of equipment.
Fortunately I have children who teach me!

M. Clement and Annik, thanks for the comments. Glad you enjoyed the clip.

I laughed out loud! Thanks so much for this.

I can relate to the poor dunce. That's just how I react to any new technology. And forget the manuals. Might just as well be written in Cyrillic.

Hysterical. I love that he didn't look at the manual first—problems there too.
