Modern Gadgets !

December 25, 2017

I have a modern smartphone ( Samsung Galaxy) & an Acer tablet for use when away from my PC. Tonight for some reason the wifi went down on both, but because the PC uses a direct link,  that worked OK, thus not needing a wifi connection to get Internet services. I also have an antiquated Mk1 IPad , so old I think it runs on gas (!!), and although somewhat limited now because Apple stopped supporting it ( ie, allowing updates), it is so reliable in every other way. Guess  what ?  The trusty old IPad still has wifi whilst the so called modern gadgets still CAN'T connect, so I'm sending this rant via the gas fired IPad  - modern gadgets are not always better !!

Furthermore my sons wife got a new iPhone for Xmas. It then took nearly 3 hours of  on and off iPad to change the SIM card with her telephone numbers , it seems that downloading info on to SIM cards on a IPhone is an acquired skill ,me when upgrading my phone earlier this year was an easy task . The other apps were on my micro memory card so no problem to transfer. Then I only use my phone to make calls ,not live on like our youngsters 24/7 .

I mainly use my phone for making / receiving WhatsApp messages, occasionally to actually speak to someone,  & to ring & locate my wife in a big shop (!!), NEVER for playing daft games, but ALWAYS to be up to date on LFC  news such as the excellent 5-0 thrashing of Swansea today !! John (JKW)
