I feel cheated I really do.
Why you might ask? Well, take a look at the "new and improved" Apple iOS 6.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
No Google map, no Youtube app.
I am going back in time. 3 years ago, I was lost and confused literally each time I need to travel to new foreign places. BUT THEN! With the use of what I called "the smartest most idiot proof phone ever" - iPhone 3S and it's equally stunning apps there was no worry at all.
Life had direction.
Now in 2012 why do I feel that technology made me went back in time to year 2009!?
Before the existence of iPhones, I honestly believed any phone that could call and message was good enough for me. Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson they were all the same. I could use them interchangably.
And then came the rise of the smartphones and of course Apple was the smartest ! Certainly felt that my standard of living improved since now a phone is NOT JUST a phone. So many other functions and one of my favourite was the fact that I COULD USE IT TO FIND DIRECTIONS from point A to Z.
So imagine my horror when I unwittingly downloaded the new operating system the night before. Woke up the next morning with an urgent need to head to a new place felt reassured since I assumed that one could easily do that with Google Map only to realize that it DISAPPEARED!
AND YOUTUBE TOO! (which I used to listen to some songs while in the bus)
WHAT NOW!?!?! :(
