My phone has been dead for two days. At first I thought the cellular networks were jammed with people freaking out, but it turns out that my iPhone was deactivated because I had not updated it via iTunes. I shudder to think about what could have happened if I were on vacation without a computer to synch the phone up with iTunes. Again … I hate iTunes or maybe this time I hate Apple. I still love my iPhone, though.
Continuing on this theme of IT — I got a new mouse. It’s pink and it works (no way Mr. Kuroneko003 will touch this mouse). I threw the old mouse in the electronics recycling bin at my local Best Buy. They also have a bin to throw old batteries in. Yay! I had a sack of them in the kitchen. Then I bought a copy of “Iron Man” on Blu-Ray. Um … the Blu-Ray software that came with my laptop didn’t seem well integrated. It took about 10-mins for the disc to load and then once it loaded it would not accept mouse input. I don’t know if it is the player software or some really bad Flash programming that’s behind that fun. Either way I was mildly annoyed. Now that I know, I guess I’ll be driving with my keyboard — or perhaps I’m supposed to be using the little remote that came with the computer and/or the DVD player buttons on the laptop itself. Still, I should be able to mouse through the DVD menu!!! AUGH!!!! I also don’t appreciate how HP has integrated itself into the DVD player software. I uninstalled and bought upgraded software using the link given by HP. I didn’t think that it would still be HP badged/tainted. AUGH!!!
