Asked whether he still has no computer, Allen told "No. I have none of that stuff. And I'm not good at that. I'm not good technically. I have a cellphone, but it's very limited. I know this: I can make calls, and my assistant put all my jazz records on it. It used to be when I would go out of town and I'd practice the clarinet, I was always schlepping a lot of vinyl recordings from city to city."

He further stated that he has "never emailed anybody".
