IPAD: IPAD3 no power

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Into the Apple store tonight for service. Luckily under contact. Argh!

There re no lights on the cable or the wart to tell you that’s failed. 

Since it powered the IPad1, I pretty sure it’s the IPAD3.

And, tell me again how much better Apple hardware is?

IPAD: Upgraded to IOS6 last night

Thursday, September 20, 2012

My IPAD1 is now an orphan. Like my original MACBOOKAIR, which was left behind as “obsolete” a few months ago. Aghh!

Victims of Apple’s planed obsolescence strategy.

argh!

(So why did I sign up for an IPHONE5? Pride, stupidity, ignorance!)

Of note, upgrade took over an hour. 

Also, the “initialization sequence” happens in portrait mode while the screen was locked in landscape. The obligatory reading was in too a tiny font for these old eyes. And, like most “shrink wrapped licenses”, what choice does the User have at that point?

Stay tuned as the “adventure” continues.

Argh!
