It’s a conspiracy! Technology conspires against me.
Last night, the screen cracked when I dropped my cell phone. The phone still worked, but for how long?
Fortunately, I had a spare phone. Five years ago, my Acatel Lume A466T smartphone was on sale for half price. I bought two phones. I used one phone as a battery charger.
I carried the second fully charged battery and never had to worry about my phone battery going dead. Now I will use the cracked cell phone as my charger.
I transferred the data from the cracked phone to its Subscriber Identification Module or SIM card. (The geek who thought up Subscriber Identification Module for a computer chip name must have been in Heaven inventing such a complicated term.)
I followed all the instructions transferring the data to the SIM card, but there was data missing when I put the SIM card in the good phone. A lot of my Contacts were missing, and the camera did not work.
The sound went on my laptop when I tried watching a YouTube video on how to get the camera working on my phone. I farted around with my laptop and finally got the sound to work. I still do not know why the sound stopped working.
So, I watched a YouTube video on how to get the camera to work. I religiously followed all the instructions from the video.
And then the camera icon disappeared from my phone. There was nothing to click on to make the camera work.
I thought, “WTF!” Of course, WTF! stands for What Technological Fun!
The sound went on my laptop again when I watched a YouTube video about restoring the phone’s camera icon.
Why would technology conspire against me? It was not to give me a hard time. Technology thought that there was not enough fun in my life, and that I had nothing better to do except fart around with a cell phone and a sometimes-no-sound laptop.
I stopped farting around to write this blog. And now back to more technological fun.
