Night and Day

My Surface 3 interface display which had beckoned me so enticingly when I was looking for a laptop to buy, has vanished with my downloading Windows 10 three weeks ago. It became a drab small thing in a corner.

I use my iPad  more often, so last night when I switched on the Surface the drab thingy had disappeared too. I checked everywhere for my programs. I clicked madly to find them. Where were the icons hiding? I finally managed to find my hotmail e mails. As it was a little bit late  I let go to find my other missing programs

I miss the display of Windows 8. Please don’t download Windows 10.  It causes havoc. I am waiting for my son to help me back to Windows 8. 

Updates create problems too like the iOS 9.0.1 for the iPhone and iPad. I opened my iBooks to read a book. The background had changed to grey on the iPhone which was quite hard on my eyes. The fear of it happening to the iBooks surface  of my iPad is not letting me to update it.  I hope nothing goes wrong if I don’t update.


Night and Day

Have you ever had an experience that was amazing the first time, but terrible the second time around? Or vice versa? What made it different the second time?


Another Saddam

I have been without a computer for the last two years. I used my iPad instead. My laptop was lying back home. My thinking was, “Why waste and spend money on a new one when the old one still worked?” And I was going back, wasn’t I?

My patience stopped in its tracks the month before last, and I went for the new Surface 3 which cost quite a packet. I love it for its size, and sleek look which is great.

My son on seeing my photo appear remarked, “Mama, you are another Saddam!”

My jaw dropped with surprise and hurt at the comparison with Saddam, and I asked, “Why did you compare me with him?”

“He was erecting statues of himself everywhere, and you are just like him in pasting a photo of yourself”.

“Why not?”, I countered back. It’s lovely to look at if I may say so brazenly, and after all it was my computer. 

“Uh..ah..ah”, replied he, not wanting to say anything further to annoy me.
Daily Prompt: Mouth Drop

In exactly 100 words creatively describe one moment when your mouth dropped open, chin hit the ground, and tears rolled down your face (figuratively or not). If you prefer to develop this into a longer post, that’s fine too!
