Kathie Lee Gifford Has Never Turned On A Computer

Forget if she is a Mac or a PC - Kathie Lee Gifford is computer illiterate.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, The Today Show host revealed that she has NEVER turned on a computer and will probably never learn how as she believe in more social interaction than social networking. She explained:

“Technical stuff does not come very easy to me. I prefer people over machines. Plus, I watch my friends and my associates and everybody freaks out when their technology falls apart. So, I’ve got the same little address book I’ve had forever. It never lets me down!”

Whatever works for you, Kathie. You're missing out though! There's a lot of wondrous things going on in cyber land!

Have you seen the work of Antione Dodsen?!

    Internet surfing and e-mail lessons toute suite for Christmas for Kathie. No point in being afraid of something so dang easy just because it appears overwhelming, but isn't.

    Antione Dodsen rocks!

    Shes right. Humans are very reliant on technoligy. Say, A massive EMP went off and wiped out the entire worlds power. People would panic. Chaos would ensue and we'd destroy ourselves.

    YEA, AND WHAT'S THAT LAPTOP ON TOP OF THE DESK SHE ALWAYS HAS ON THAT LAME TALK SHOW OF HERS… JUST SAYIN, LIAR.

    ^ No there's not. Theres a lot of CRAP going on…including this place. Yeah, yeah, then why am I commenting? To let people know what crap this is. :)

    Good for Kathie Lee. My computer was out of whack for a week and I didn't miss not going online one bit.

    she never turned on her husband either.

    Her hair needs a huge sorting out…

    I see where's she's coming from. People are entirely too reliant on computers. Today's children can't read maps or find a book in a library - if they even know what a library is. It's sad and appalling really……….

    Goodness! I have been online since Gopher (at the U of M grad school - props if you know what Gopher was) and one of the 1st AOL subscribers and now on my 4G personal mifi. I need the internet - I make money from it and it has benefited my life and that of my family if in every way. I cannot imagine life without it. And I seriously think Kathie Lee is missing out on modern life by thinking her "little black book" offers the same opportunity, information and enlightenment the Internet does.

    Re: April 20th – My kids use Wikipedia, read ebooks, listen to books on their iPods but they also read "regular" books. I think that the internet has only expanded our opporutnity to consume more and better books, entertainment, media. Libraries, like most govt institutions were so slow to jump on the the tech bandwagon - they could have been the hub for the new info society. Libraries are still necessary, just not as important.

    Re: IvyLeagueBitch – My point is that with today's technology, (most) children cannot walk into a library for a specific book and find it. They'd have no idea how to. Hell, I remember when computers had index card catalogs. If the computer crashes, how's that storyline in the "ebook" going? And forget about maps, children these days are too lazy to figure out what line they need to follow……..just give em a "tom tom"………

    I have no problem further educating but when one thing is taught in lieu of something else because someone along the way deemed it unneeded - it's ludicrous and dumbing down society. When the computer that you've relied on so persistently crashes, now what?

    She's just sooooo above it all. She's so self absorbed I find it hard to believe she doesnt google herself constantly and read everythign written about her.



  13. 13

    She is lying. She has 2 kids in college I am sure she emails them. Phoney bitch just wants to sound like she is unique



  14. 14

    Another one who should CHOKE ON HER OWN VOMIT!!!



  15. 15

    EVERYONE REMEMBER THE TIME HER HUSBAND SCREWED SUZEN JOHNSON. THAT WAS SO FUNNY WHEN THAT HAPPENED!!!!

    That's real cool though. I like technology and internet, but I think it's really changed everything and everyone. I watch my husband text and write on fb to his family he never sees… they can't call each other, it's all typed out. It's just sad to me… I think we miss out on real connections in life because we all rely on internet and texting. I even have a hard time calling people now because I've relied on texting so much!

    I've had times where I didn't have internet due to a broken computer or broken internet (yes, it was all messed up in our lines). I felt really free and a huge relief actually.
    I'd totally be cool getting away from it all if I had to! =D I think it's so awesome that she doesn't deal with any of it.

    Re: NookiesWA – Yeah, a lot of people would be out of jobs too! lol.

    I was always raised with: Don't depend on other people or technology to succeed in life, you can never rely on either to get you to where you want to be.

    It's proven to be true for me!

    Re: IvyLeagueBitch – What about basic life? April 20th is 100% correct!
    I'm just happy to know that my kids someday won't be evolving their lives around internet and technology. They won't be screaming at me when they didn't get the laptop of their dreams for Christmas. I'll be teaching my kids basic life skills, the importance of REAL life, and appreciation of family. Also, they'll know how to rely on things that aren't materialistic. They'll know how to WRITE a heartfelt letter to someone, not an email with containing (wtf, omg, wat, and u/ur). They'll know how to look up a book in a library, rather than search it online. They'll depend on basic living, and ENJOY convenient living.
    What's even more awesome about what I just said? I'm not even a parent yet! I'm only 20! The age of someone who is normally obsessed and can't see a life outside of technology.

    For being a U of M grad, I'm disappointed that you can't separate your life from technology. Now you're teaching your kids to rely and live for it too.
    Sad.

    Re: MarioMonjack – Yeah that's hilarious. I don't know who she really is… but I don't find it funny at all when someone is hurt by their husband. Specially when it's because he stuck his dick in someone else. No matter who it is.
    Nothing funny about that.
    People like you are the reason why the internet is no fun. People like you are so bored with your life, you have to mention disgusting things when no one else mentioned them. You're off your fucking rocker, you sick bitch.

    Re: swpboi – My mom didn't email me when I lived in Seattle, 2,500 miles away from home.
    She called me, she sent me letters… she came to see me. She never emailed me, not once!
    So technically, she might not have emailed her kids…

    I wish more people thought like her

    of coarse she is computer illiterate she is almost 60 and was born in the 50s she is used to this their was none of this back in her time. my mom is the same age as her and she never used a computer because i know myself. if say i was born in 2000 than technology would be part of my life but for her its not.
