Being such a geek and a nerd, I have a lot of pet peeves when it comes to technology. Especially when it comes to how people interact with it. I understand that not everyone can be as tech-savy as I am but there are a few things that are pretty simple that everyone should do.
Nothing pisses me off more in theworld than when I see an iPhone with 50+ updates on it. Like what the hell?!?!?!? Developers word hard to update their apps and you can’t take 10 seconds out of your day to update it? And it isn’t really about the developers, it’s just about people being lazy. I have a friend that comes to me probably every week because she is having problems with her iPhone. And every week I tell her the same thing… It’s because you don’t update it. It is so mind boggling to me that she can’t get that through her thick skull. Like seriously, Apple is on iOS 6.1.3 right now for their software, and this girl is on friggin iOS 4.0.1. Like don’t complain tome that your phone doesn’t work when you are honestly two whole years of updates behind.
Even more so is app updates. Something that doesn’t even take 15 seconds out of your day, and you’re too damn lazy to just press the update button. I’ve heard thousands of excuses ranging from I liked the way the app worked already, to it takes too much time and doesn’t do anything. Like are you kidding me?!?!?!?! If it didn’t do anything developers wouldn’t work so hard to push them out. Updates make things better, fix bugs,and add new features, and you would have to be an idiot to think that they don’t. Seriously don’t complain that your apps and your phone isn’t working if you don’t update anything, you have no right.
In the end it’s pretty simple, just update your apps. There is no downfall to doing it. If there is a bug with the update, it’s usually fixed within the day anyway. It’s honestly just ridiculous if you don’t do it. And if you don’t update, please don’t come crying to me.
