There's been pop up on my computer each day that is disrupting my peace of mind. It's a little thing but where Apple is concerned, it's always the little things that are the most annoying. The big things? Apple has it right. My MacBook Pro has been working flawlessly for over 4 years so I'm thankful each day that my old Windows system is sitting in the closet collecting dust, where it shall remain.
The pop up informs me that I can't download the Find My IPhone App because I haven't downloaded their most recent update. I've never figured out why I should update something that is working just fine the way it is thank you very much. More often than not, the updates are not an improvement...they just make things look and work differently. Who needs that unless you're a nerd with no life!
But it was the recent U2 publicity stunt that really got my gander. In today's Guardian, columnist Charles Brooker best describes how I feel about most things Apple and all things U2:
"As part of the iPhone 6 publicity blitz, Tim Cook also announced every iTunes user in the world would be getting U2’s new album free of charge. It was downloaded automatically on to millions of users’ phones, like a sinister virus. Music is meant to be catchy – but not until you’ve heard it. The album, which I haven’t listened to yet, is terrible: even worse than their last one, which I didn’t listen to either. I don’t want to listen to any U2 albums in case I discover I like them, and have to violently reassess my own self-image. For the past five years, it’s been delightfully easy to ignore U2. Then Apple comes along and slings them under your nose like a bowl of bum soup you didn’t order. What do we have to do? Start lobbying Google for U2’s right to be forgotten?"
Thanks Charles. As for U2? Bugger off! And while you're at it, tell Van Morisson to bugger off too! I never did like your music!
