While I do have a smartphone (my third this year incidentally, owing to a couple of unfortunate incidents involving tractors), I still don't have a satnav attached to my dashboard. Or a "Siri". Or much technology in my pickup at all for that matter.
I still don't have a cell phone, stupid, smart or any variety. You may read this as "I am an old crank," but I see it as reclaiming space in my life. It is a form of privilege, as many do not have the option to thumb their nose at technological assimilation, or I may just be an old crank.
I sit and think of everything, then I wonder where I've been.
They shouldn't be called Smart Phones, they should be called Sneaky Freaking Spies. TVs are Large Sneaky Freaking Spies.
Siri, I hate that bizzotch. One of the first things I do when there is an OS update is make sure everything I want off is still turned off. I cussed at Siri a lot until I figured out what I need to do immediately after updates.
My old phone is struggling to recharge, so I have a feeling I will get a new phone soon. Gasp--I might finally get a smartphone.
Holding a charge or getting the thing to charge?
I was wondering about my problems recharging and googled "phone cord loose" or something like that.
It's probably lint. I spend some time with my phone and a plastic toothpick (wood would work but stay away from the paperclips). I got a lot out. Might have done the trick. I haven't tried with the worst cord I have though. Some cords and chargers have worked better for me.
A bit of both. It can take a long time to charge. Most of the time the thing works fine, but about once a month or so the battery will drain really quickly. The thing is pretty old (I think this is the longest I've had one phone), so it is probably about time to get a new one.
Gentlemen, you can't fight in here--this is the war room.
No--we used to have them at work, but we don't get them as much anymore as we got rid of our old computer/cash registers where we used compressed air to clean between the keys on keyboard. It is fun using the stuff and causing the can to turn cold in the process, or maybe I am just easily amused.
