Shock! horror! phone that works!

I've never detested any bit of kit as much as my last phone. It wouldn't sync properly, and it randomly cut people off instead of answering their calls. All I could ever get on it was a Mickey Mouse version of the internet which Costa Plenty. I never could get it to send an email. Vodafone blamed Sony Ericsson and Sony Ericsson blamed Vodafone, spiced with a lot of PR crap about how personal they were and how special I was and “Oh dear, you've got an Apple Macintosh.” It installed everything they texted me, but I never could get access to a human being to help. I hated it so much I once almost chucked it in the river, then remembered all I'd get off the insurance was another one. Anyway its contract has now reached end of term. I’m free. I've got an iPhone, and after ten minutes automatic setup it all does exactly what it says on the tin. Phew. I'm only sorry they don’t have the iBible yet in the UK...

And today is one of those days when however much you like their products, you really don't much like Apple, as they make a surprise announcement and bring out iPhones with double the storage capacity.

Not that it's not happened to all of us - they started shipping iMac's with built in iSight's a couple of weeks after we upgraded a few years back, and as a result of today my iPod Touch is the small model...

All part of the technology game.

Seems inevitable, like death and taxes... Someone suggested to me today that the last phone was terrible because it was so new when I first had it the software hadn't really got much beyond the beta stage...

You love Apple. You hate Apple. Story of my life!

+A

The following is what I say to people who ask me which computer they should get, which could be applied to mobile phones too:

If you require a computer and want to learn and spend a great amount of time on a computer, then get a Windows computer.

If however you have better things to do in your life, don't want to suffer errors received, obtaining drivers that are incompatible and operates faster and more reliable then obtain an Apple Mac computer.

Also remember that an Apple Mac computer can operate Windows faster with less errors than a PC

If you want a computer or mobile that does what it says, then there is no choice but an Apple.
