I’m having a foul day. First I couldn’t work out the right way to auto-post Bacon’s Rise up posts to Fb. OK, I’m technically challenged, so I’ll rent somebody to do it. Then I up to date WordPress, which I do know the right way to do, however all of the feedback disappeared. I didn’t know the right way to repair that however, fortunately, my Web host supplier did.
Now my iPhone battery has died.
It’s the outdated Can’t-fix-A-because-of-B, and Can’t-fix-B-because-of-C drawback.
To get a brand new battery put in, I went on-line to arrange an appointment on the Richmond Apple Retailer. To arrange an Apple retailer appointment, I wanted to schedule an appointment on-line. Once I tried to schedule an appointment, Apple requested for my username and password. I offered these. Then Apple required a double authentication. It wished to ship me a verification code to my iPhone. My iPhone was lifeless, so I couldn’t get the code.
All lifeless ends.
Apple failed to contemplate the likelihood — which should occur, oh, tens of millions of instances a 12 months!!! — that their buyer’s friggin’ battery has died.
And to assume that Apple is now a $2 trillion firm.
Such is the world we stay in, girls and gents. I don’t fear about computer systems and AI taking on the world. I fear about our technology-dependent civilization getting so advanced with so many bugs and suggestions loops that in the future the entire thing collapses us again to the Stone Age…. with the added drawback that none of us is aware of the right way to survive within the Stone Age.
Replace: I attempted contacting the AppleStore the old style manner — by phone. The Richmond AppleStore does have a telephone quantity, nevertheless it kicks you over to the Telephone Tree from Hell. The Telephone Tree from Hell additionally desires to ship an authentcation code to… my friggin’ lifeless iPhone! There isn’t a technique to clarify this to the Telephone Tree From Hell. After I cursed and shouted sufficient, the Telephone Tree From Hell mentioned it might join me to an actual particular person. Then it put in my prolonged maintain. I do not know how lengthy I’ll have to attend.
I suppose I’ll simply drive out to the Apple Retailer and hope that on this COVID-constrained period, somebody can work me in. I’m wondering how lengthy I’ll have to attend. I feel I’ll take my Kindle Hearth so I can learn a guide whereas I’m ready.
I hope my Kindle Hearth battery doesn’t run out.
