Being Smart with a Smartphone

User: can you help my manager with a payroll issue? She’s new and does not know how to enter my time for me.

Tech: She’ll need to contact Payroll for assistance. I can give you the number.

User: I don’t have a pen or paper.

Tech: On your smartphone you can just type it in.

User: How?

Tech: Open an app that you can type notes into.

User: My dad will type it into his phone. (Mind you, dear ole dad is the one driving. He took down the number while they were at a stop light.)

Word to the not so smart with a smartphone. You can put a person on speakerphone, or Bluetooth headset, minimize the call, then open any app you want while still maintaining the call. That is multitasking.
