File this under "W" for "What the Freckle?" !!! Let me just warn you -- this is not a heart-warming look at motherhood kind of post, or a change the world inspirational post. No, this is a rant.
Last night, I was syncing my iPhone with my new computer. And I was tempted by the little button informing me that I was not up-to-date. What? Has this computer seen my closet? I'm never out of season so I certainly can't be out of date. So I pushed that little button which embarked me on a four hour odyssey.
And much like Homer's Odyssey of old, there were a few unexpected bumps and bruises along the way. But unlike Odysseus, I did not finally arrive back to all I had before.
First off, let me warn you fellow non-techies (Computer geeks may tune out for this paragraph). If you are syncing with a new computer, make sure that you have "authorized" that computer before starting the process. I thought that I had but evidently had not. This is VERY important. Because when iTunes told me that I had not properly executed such directive, it was at the point of telling me that all my purchased items could not be transferred to the library. Point of fact for those of you interested, this is TOO late. I have lost all my apps. UGH!!!!!
Now you might say that is a steep sacrifice but you now have the most up-to-date (old) iPhone possible. But what did I get for that? I got a phone that looks wet. I'm not kidding. It looks like water is under the screen. And that's what a mother of two young kids wants to see -- droplets of water on her iPhone. What "genius" over at Apple came up with that?
In fairness, I must say that the new facebook app I could now download was awesome. And I love that I can send photos with texts. But please!!! Not a fair trade for all my apps plus all my settings, thank you!
Okay. I feel a little better now. At least, until I unlock my phone and see all the black screen where apps were. And then the hex on Steve Jobs is SOOOO back on! (Just kidding. I'm not a stalker or anything. Well not a stalker in the real world. Virtual stalking doesn't count, right? LOL!)
