Yesterday I spent an unsuccessful hour in a mobile shop I patronise trying unsuccessfully to sort out why the wifi on my iPad does not function.
To get it to work I needed to download an IOS upgrade but could not do so as I had no wifi.
Over the last month, since the dreadful upgrade, my internet has twice gone down completely, I have wasted hours waiting for engineers and repairers, paid out a lot of money and thought I had finally had a fully functioning system.
The language of internet assistance is a mix of the over familiar (“howdy”) and the opaque.
Added to this the charging point of my Kindle broke. The shop that supplied it said it was not a warranty issue for them, but a manufacturer’s.
No .. no .. no.
So I now have a Roberts radio which I switch on and off at the turn of a switch and a paper book that after you have read you can present to a friend and anything else that gets me out of the Internet-dependent cage.
