Why does everything shift about on the iPhone. I arrange all those little icons in order of preference and a few days later they’re swopped around to Apple’s order of preference ... or is it the phone company that messes with our phones? It’s little things like this that drive me bonkers. I am quite an organised person and like things to be easy to get at if I’m in a hurry. If I want to see something on the iPhone I want to see it straight away and not have to hunt for it. Fussy, or what?
One thing I am pleased about comes under the heading GOOGLE. All the time I have owned an iPhone and iPad (more years than I can remember) I have been unable to post comments or do anything else remotely connected to this blog unless I gave my password and email address. Not in bulk, but every time, for every different comment. Suddenly, about a month ago, I found I could do it by phone, albeit assuming the eyesight was strong enough to see what I was doing. The only way round that was to do it all on computer. Imagine my surprise, therefore, when I needed to post a comment whilst the computer was switched off and I was in an idle mood. Yes, it was sheer laziness that caused me to do it on the iPad. Just once, I thought, it wouldn’t kill me to go through the procedure just once.
Imagine the shock of not being asked for password or email address. It must be a one off, I thought, but I was wrong. It happens all the time now. Someone must have complained! It wasn’t me, honest, although I was very tempted to write to Google and complain.
