I’ve always been a willful child. I like to set things up the way I like them, and I’m in my comfort zone. I don’t like it when things change and disrupt my comfort zone. Over the past few weeks I have had to rid myself of two pieces of technology that would no longer bend themselves to my will. 1) My Droid. I had a Droid X from Verizon. When I first got it, I thought it was the bomb! I could email, surf the web, find businesses near my current location, stargaze, find all my friends, etc. I was in tech heaven. Somewhere along the line, the Droid really did become a Droid. It started calling people whenever it felt like it. I could be sitting on the couch reading and suddenly hear someone yelling at me from my phone which would be sitting on the coffee table, and they were wondering why I called them? I didn’t. The phone did — without my touching it. I did a software upgrade, and it only got worse. It wouldn’t allow me to answer incoming calls. It attempted to download apps I didn’t want, and would eat my battery up in the trying. I finally decided to go back to my old phone. As I tried to activate an old phone, the tech asked me to power off my Droid. I did. It shut down. While we were trying to activate my other phone, the Droid turned itself back on! I pulled it’s battery. Feeling better now, Dave? 2) Facebook. Don’t even get me started. I’ve weathered the changes over the past couple of years. Usually finding how to eliminate the fancy gadgets it threw up into my path as I just tried to keep up with friends. Last night was finally IT. I could not get the latest news feed, only news that Facebook “thought” I “might” want to see. Nope, sorry. I like to choose who’s stuff I read. It also dropped an appendage of current friend updates into my field of vision and I could not rid myself of it. Aaaaahhhhhhh! So, I deleted my account. I spend way too much time there anyway. I’ll try to keep up with everyone’s blog, the few quilting lists, etc., and hope that’s good. Sometimes a gal just has to have things the way she wants them. I can’t follow the Facebook herd anymore (well, at least for now anyway).
