Interviewer: Ms. Chen, can you tell us which pieces of technology are important to you?
Interviewee: Three things: my Sharp laptop; my iphone 5; and my Olympus digital camera. 7 : the kids, art, buildings, clothes, scenes that catch
my eye as I walk past.
Interviewer: What do you use your computer for?
Interviewee: Well, I send emails all the time. But I do a lot of my design work on screen now and I can send my ideas straight to directors and producers.8 – there are some fantastic sites around now.
Interviewer: Who uses the computer at home?
Interviewee: The kids use the computer all the time at home. 9 – and on
top of that they’re always texting on their mobile phones! They play
computer games when they think I or their father aren’t looking! They
don’t like doing homework, of course, but there are some really good
revision sites on the Internet. 10 – 15 minutes for a whole
supermarket “visit”! That feels really good.
