iPhone: Consequences of not Updating

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!!!
