Technology - on and off

Technology failed me today.  For the first time in my life I have relied upon a piece of technology to keep my information safely and it failed me. 

The IPad Frank gave me for Christmas died sometime in the night.  I assume it did, it won't turn on at all.  Despite all my nasty words and thoughts, it continues to remain blank.  I shall return it shortly.

And it was really something I liked.  It was the first time I had anything from Apple and just may be the last if their stuff only lasts for about 2 months!  My wonderful Dell computers have served me so well for years and years. 

This is what is should look like:

This is what mine looks like: 

In addendum:  My Mac Is Back.  My Mac Friend Valerie delved into a forum for people with this type of personal problem and found that if you press that button on the screen with the square on it, and the on/off button at the same time it should reset.

It did.  So I will look upon this as a learning experience, not without trepidation.  I shall continue to keep my important dates in a normal datebook.  But I will give it another chance to prove it's usefulness.

  1. Oh no! How frustrating. My husband is a Mac lover and I get so frustrated anytime I have to use his laptop. I have been tempted by the IPad though. Hope it was a one time problem.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
