Can’t use my IPAD1 apple id?
(I’m not buying all the stuff over again. Starting the issues list. May have to return it.)
# – # – # – # – #
Apple id is mobile me.
It’s forcing me up to icloud.
icloud requires lion.
lion needs a lot of space.
now if’s forcing me into “forgotten password”
forcing me to authenticate the id’s emil by clicking a link
now it’s still forcing “forgotten password” and not sending the link.

ipad3!. May have been a mistake. All sorts of initialization issues. Apple may be overwhelmed and using “forgotten password” to throttle use.

Comparing Taylor Swift HD on IPAD1 and IPAD3 — don’t see much difference.
Trying to think of other comparisons.

THE SAGA CONTINUES

subject: How to reset your Apple ID password.
Arrived in Google mail box about 9AM. Google posts within seconds to receipt. I know I send stuff from different account into gmail account often. Sometimes Google posts it before I can ALT TAB or TAB SELECT from the sending website over to the GMAIL window. Google’s fast; I’m faulting Apple on this one. Either deliberately or not. Argh!
Finally the link comes through, password reset. I know that I didn’t “forget” any of my passwords, I use LASTPASS, a text file, and a spreadsheet. ARGH!
Now onto try to upgrade MACBOOKAIR to LION. Then I can move from MOBILEME to ICLOUD. Then, finally I can rename my apple id from the old format of a simple name to the new required format of an email address. Then I can connect the IPAD3 to my old apple id and get to try it.
(If you think this all been a big mistake, I agree. What idiot enforces a new rule (i.e., an apple id has to be an email “for security purposes”. Someone needs to explain that one to me. I’m going to bounce this off Bruce S. Maybe it’ll give him some blog fodder.)
I STILL think they deliberately did this to control load. Yeah, I’m a cynic with a tin foil hat!

SAGA <synonym for excrement>
Going back to the APPSTORE on the MACBOOKAIR tells me that “too many incorrect passwords”. Forces me to say “I forgot it”. (All for MY protection, of course.) And, then if forces up something that opens NVU to edit the page. Are you kidding me?
And Apple is “user friendly”? “barbara streisand”
So, I have uninstall NVU, do this non-sense, wait for another email, buy LION, reinstall NVU, install LION. Then I can move from MOBILEME to ICLOUD. Then, finally I can rename my apple id from the old format of a simple name to the new required format of an email address. Then I can connect the IPAD3 to my old apple id and get to try it.
To quote Taylor Swift: “This is begining to look like tragedy now.” An epic poem worthy of Homer who wrote the Odyssey!
