Rant of the day..

APPLE.. what the hell are they thinking?

Why on earth do they give us an option to disable automatic updates when the sodding device totally and utterly IGNORES it?

I did a complete format of my ipad today and one of the first things I did after turning it back on was to turn OFF auto updates as I know the damn thing has been whining at me to install ios 8 for ages and I don't want it.

I look at my pad an hour later and it's downloaded the bloody update!!! Why, when I told it not to??

Yes, I am mad about this, it's irritating.

Is this a "rant of the day" thread where everyone rants about something or just your rant?

Forced updates annoy me as well whether it's Windows, my Nexus 7, my Vita or something else. They all seem to force you into it by nagging you until you give in and usually at the worst possible times.

I'm a bit more wary of updates now because I had an s4 mini which actually worked brilliantly until it got an update and the addition of Knox definitely hit the performance on it.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

My rant of the day is that there are a lot of spam posts about skin care products here by various users lately. Probably by various robot accounts

Loads of things are pissing me off today, nothing serious or major just lots of little tiny things that are fighting for brain space and making me want to go up a hill and scream. I've not had my usual amount of coffee either and it's giving me a headache.



Eta, I'd be pissed off if ios8 got forced on me too.

I 'm taking them out as I see them, rest assured that it is being handled by the mods and me.
