Oh the joy of technology

Ah the joy…and the pain of technology.

When it “works”, it’s amazing! It does things beyond our wildest imagination! I mean really, just look at all the things your phone can do for you…and you can even use it as a phone!

Simply amazing!  Or is it really that simple?  I think not!

When it fails us, or probably more like, when I fail it, there’s nothing quite as frustrating.  But I mean really, should it be this complicated?

I’ve tried everything that this feeble brain of mine can think of to resolve this issue, and I just can’t figure it out!  It’s so frustrating right now, I could just, well you know….SCREAM!

But I’m happy to say that all is well now.  After a visit to my friendly Apple store, a crisis has been adverted, and I’m back in the land of sanity.  And it’s so nice to be back!  That going crazy stuff really isn’t that much fun!

And yes, it was “user error“.  Almost always is, isn’t it?

Now, if I could just get one of those shiny new Mac Book‘s that I saw at the store!  Ahhh….that would be nice!

Someday, my dream will come true 🙂

  1. Man do I hear you on this!!! I hit the wall (figuratively…but I wasn’t far from a literal wall toss!) with my old laptop a few months ago. In frustration I didn’t even bother to try to get it fixed. Instead I went out and got a new one and now keep my fingers crossed nothing bad happens too soon. My sanity can’t take it!!! 😉

      Ha! I knew there would be someone who could relate to this! I was just about ready to do the literal toss as well! Problems and speed issues are my two biggest frustrations! Oh where or where is that “perfect” world?! Ha! I’m glad you were able to get a new computer – it’s so important to keep that sanity in check! 🙂

    As soon as I read joy and the pain, I was already agreeing with you. Sometimes I think life was simpler without them though a lot more slow 😀

      Oh, so much slower, that is true. I must admit, I do appreciate the ability to communicate with people at just about anytime, and anywhere. Face time with my grandson has got to be one of the best things ever! So, I don’t hate it – it can just be so frustrating some times, and those are the times I just don’t like! I like fast and trouble free, but that’s probably how most people feel about it! 🙂
