Some of us embrace technology, other of us stumble in techo-trembling through all of the maze of short-cuts and gibberish-like instructions we do not understand.

It is unfamiliar territory, either you seize upon the newest electronic gadget or try and stick to your rapidly getting older favourite computer, laptop, tablet or phone until the computer company decides that feeding it’s technological offspring updates is no longer viable and forces you to update.

If you are like Himself, he hates getting to know his way around a new phone, all he wants is a few basic functions and the old phone provided that, so why bother with an update?

YouTube is popular for showing videos. It’s a curse and a wonder. You can teach yourself plumbing, problem solve that tricky algebra question with the professor on your screen, or get roped into the scrolling videos on the right hand side of your screen, you know the ones: “10 airports with most difficult landings”, or “watch kittens trying to work our how to catch a fish on a tablet”.

Unbeknownst to me, YouTube does have quite few tricks up it’s sleeve. Thanks to Little Mr.  (but delivered with an exasperated sigh, and incredulous “didn’t you know that?”) I learned that you can play YouTube videos at more than one speed. Playing at 2x normal speed does of course do weird things to the accompanying music and makes any commentary unintelligible but in the case of the “Lengthening Interislander’s Aratere Ferry ” video, all I really wanted to see were the pictures anyway. Here is a short step-by-step tutorial about how to change the speed of YouTube videos… easy, …once you know this function existed!
