THE OLD PHILOSOPHER DIPS A TOE IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY

Yesterday, I went to an Apple Store, which seemed to be inhabited by people who were born thirty years after I first got tenure, and bought an Apple 5S IPhone.  I am now desperately trying to figure out how to use it.  I have managed to make a phone call with it, and I also took a picture of nothing in particular.  I still have not figured out how to configure it so that I can read my email.  But I did discover that no matter where I go, it knows where I am, which is weird.  I am not sure, but I do not think Immanuel Kant had one of these.

Setting it up for email is just like setting up a mail client on a computer. That's an entirely unhelpful remark if you haven't done that. But you should need just a few pieces of information (in addition to your email password; all of which I can probably skim off the umass help pages....more to come)

thanks. Unfortunately the UMass email system is down at the moment. It seems to be infected with some sort of virus and my computer tells me not to log onto it, and also I have 32 messages or so that are not showing in my inbox. It was easier when I had two dixie cups connected by a long piece of string.
