I Hate Bloody Apple

#1
I really do.

We have an iPod which has stopped syncing with the PC it's supposed tosync with, for no apparent reason. Tried re-booting it, the cable is fine,but it won't recognise the PC. It will, however, work fine with another PC.

The iPad won't back-up, so if we re-boot it we lose the games my wife and daughter have downloaded. I've followed instructions from the Apple website and videos, but it still won't do it.

I've just had to reset the home Wifi router - can I get the bloody iPad to join the network? Can I hell. It asks me for the password for all the other networks it can see, but not ours.

At least with Windows-based kit you have a fair chance of seeing some of the back-end and working out what's wrong, but Apple stuff seems to have been written in Aramaic by an insane monk.

******* Apply, I'd like to beat Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs to death (again) with a big shitty stick with nails in it.

I far rather burn the iCrap products we have.

WTF do numpties queue around the block every time a new piece of Apple shit comes out? Are they mad?

What amazes me is that when I go past the Apple store (the size of 2 or 3 basketball courts) in the IFC Mall here in HK - a VERY expensive piece of real estate - it's always mobbed, and they seem to have more staff than the ******* Wermacht.

Why did you buy it all in the first place then?

And if you've got the shop right handy, why not go in there and ask them to sort it out at their 'Genius Bar' (writing that actually made a bit of sick come up) rather than dripping like a rancid vagina all over the internet about it?

What generation ipod is this? Have you got back up of all the content (you surely do, just checking). If you have an apple store near by, why not go there and seek advice? If it is an ipad touch, have you tried sync over wifi or into the clould?

The Scary one (also known as the Stupid One) bought them. Silly bitch.

A couple of good suggestions there, chaps.

The iPod one is a bit tricky, as it would mean lugging the PC with me, and they might burn me as a heretic if I walked in with a product which actually ******* worked. It might be worth taking the iPad in, though.

Thanks,

ipods are rather funny especially the hard drive ones, they get a fault which can only be sorted by rebooting under power and without data so you need a power adapter. which of course they don't supply.

everything is an extra with them, even the stuff they invented like usb ports.

I have a new reason to hate ******* Apple - the last two school choir concerts that my daughter was singing at had some twat parent using a ******* iPad to video/take photos.

Now, most parents will hold up a camera/mobile/small video cam at a school concert and I can live with that, but an iPad is the size of a piece of ******* A4 and blocks a significant piece of the view if you are behind such a **** - sorry, 'Apple user'.

I had to have a quiet word with him.

Nothing wrong with apple kit until it goes wrong or the screen inevitably smashes.

Smashed the screen on my iPod, iPad, and iphone4 (twice). It might just be me that manages to smash everything though.
