Technology sucks.

16 Apr

Good evening bloggers, and blog readers…

So today I want to talk about this magical invention some of you might have heard of. It’s called technology. And what I want to talk about specifically, is why it fricken hates me.
Now, I’m a 17 year old, and a good portion of my “disposable income” (well, what’s left of my minimum wage that’s not been spent of Starbucks everyday and clothes that I’ll never actually wear…) goes towards buying new technology. So my dad (when he’s not working 24/7 doing god knows what) spends a lot of his time on technology, too, so I’ve always grown up having the newest and best technology going, my favourite collection being every game boy and Pokemon game produced, but that’s just me. And recently, it’s started to dawn on me that technology sucks. In spend about £20-£30 a month on updating or new technology. My latest rip off was a Bluetooth keyboard for my iPad. (I’ll get to the iPad later.) now, it wasn’t expensive, and therefore I don’t expect much and I’m not that picky or anything, but if I do expect one thing, thats for it to work. I opened the box, after the delivery already being like 3 days late, and hooked it up. It worked for about an hour, then it slowly stopped. (the hint was when the word ‘evolution’ became ‘en’. Yeah, a slight give away I know) and I thought ok, it must be out of charge. So I put it on charge, and 24 hours later, I try again, and it’s not working, other than the occasional ‘e’ then it stops working again (I’m fighting for the company for a refund.). Fun stuff, I know. And surely if there’s this new, wonderful technology that’s like sending people and robots into outer space and making like phones that plug into your head, then the concept of a keyboard, which was discovered like, a hundred or more years ago should be pretty fricken easy. Obviously not.
And about my iPad… I bought it in the summer, and every time I try to sync it up to my computer, all of my apps just break and I can’t use them. And then I have to reset my iPad to factory settings, then restore it to my settings and my photos blah blah blah (my iPads called splat, by the way, in case anyone was interested…) and it’s just a nightmare. Now if I’m spending like £450 on some machine smaller than a piece of paper, then I fricken expect it to do what it’s supposed to do. And worse, I just go onto the apple website, and they ask me to PAY to ask them a simple question- here’s exactly that they say, and I quote: ” Based on the information we have for your product, you may need to purchase a single incident of support or an AppleCare Protection Plan to speak with an Advisor. ”  are they fricken KIDDING ME? They’ve got to be kidding.they’re kidding me. Seriously.
But what’s more of a piss take is blackberry. Now blackberry is a pretty well known, and widely used phone producer, but the quality and service of the blackberry handset is shocking. I’ve had my blackberry storm (the slider one that looks like a traditional slide phone got sat on) for exactly a year now, and every month, without fail, it breaks. The camera never works, and the Internet doesnt work, and recently it’s stopped sending my texts all together. And if I’m paying monthly, I expect to get what I pay for. Gosh darnit.
I mean, dude, I am so unlucky when it comes to technology. I’m on my second laptop in a year (and even that ones broken) and its just ridiculous how crappy technology for really simple things are these days. I want to go back to the days of the brick Nokia where entertainment is playing snake in black and white. Llamas, that was the best, and I’m sure if I started that phone up itd work. Even after being thrown again a brick wall. And chewed. And dropped in the toilet. And god knows what else.
Oh and my Internet never works. 
Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?
Ok night! :* 

(And yes, I’m slowly typing this on my iPad while giving my crappy not working keyboard the evil eye, and contemplating the temptation of it exiting my room via the window.)
