Subtitle: My name is Marcus, and my wife is ...
an iPhone user
Since Marcus thinks of Marcus and Agata as a super-techy couple (that is super-geeky in post 2000 speak) it has been a source of mild perturbation that there may be some cognitive dissonance in our otherwise harmonious household.
This thought was postulated this evening whilst I was trying to explain the virtues of of the
Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) custom recovery Android tool to Agata.
I was mid way through an explanation of what a bootstrap program and BIOS was when Agata looked at me with those iPhone eyes and said:
I was going to try and explain the multiple hassles and challenges that this Saturday evening and now Sunday morning has thrown at Marcus:
- The Nexus 5, Lollipop fatal 5.0.1 upgrade error
- The problem downloading the Bacon TWRP image (418)
- How MTP mode under Windows is extremely Motherboard sensitive
But no, all I got was then a further request to come to bed. In the middle of not one but 2 Lollipop upgrades? Are you crazy?
TO me I refer to Cognitive Dissonance because whilst Agata is a super techy, when it comes to phones, her iOS upgrade policy seems to be: when Apple tells you to upgrade your phone OS. The thought of arbitrarily re-installing, rooting or otherwise tampering with your Phone OS, well it is just a non starter.
So now it is the early hours and all is well in the techno study. Both primary and backup phones are upgraded and working, and I have even had time to check out that dress quandary. Clearly you need to look at
and smile at this
And now, it is indeed time for bed :-)
