Brick

Sigh.

My iPhone froze up on loading the 2.2 update. Now I find myself making an emergency run to the Apple Store instead of going to ceili. Grumpy.

I didn't realize until just now that there's no Apple Stores in the east bay between Oakridge Mall in the south end of San Jose, all the way up to Emeryville. You have to cross a bridge to get to an Apple Store if you're in the east bay. That seems... wrong.

I tried restoring my iPhone on my Mac, then tried it again on the VM Ware/Windows XP side. I've been syncing to both because it's been giving me errors on the Mac side. The Windows side has (ironically) been working quite cheerfully until now. But both got the same error: Unkown error (2001). Um, yeah, thanks. What's that about Macs being friendlier? Only not so much. Same stupid unhelpful error messages.

Waiting. I hate waiting. I hate having to wait for this. I really really like my iPhone, but every day that passes, every error I encounter, every time I have to go talk to a Genius, I find myself more frustrated with how smug Apple is. Their commercials are just bitchy. As I was waiting for the software update to load fail, there was an Apple commercial about how much Microsoft was spending on advertising instead of improving Vista. Gotta say, not seeing many Microsoft ads these days but sure do see an awful lot of Mac vs. PC commercials from Apple.

  • Ceili was a small turnout.
    There is an Apple Store at the Bay Street Mall in Emeryville.
