Get your acts together, oh ye masters of cyberspace!
My Mac laptop (which they tout as virus-proof) has a nasty, nasty virus and insists on throwing up page after page of porn pop-ups so vile they cannot be described in the polite company kept by Polloplayer.
And since I’m traveling – in WDC at the moment visiting Taylor! – said laptop will have to live in porn purgatory until the CE, holding down the fort in NYC, can return with it to CA and our trusty computer guy.
I do have an iPad with me, which is of absolutely no use for WordPress since, 1) Apple , in its infinite lack of wisdom, will not allow me to download the WordPress app and 2) body text cannot be entered in a post via the iPad when accessing WordPress via Safari on the iPad.
And this is not just old-lady ineptitude – there is evidence of lamenting and gnashing of teeth on these issues from presumably far more tech-savvy types on support forums for both iPad and WordPress.
I have not included Blackberry in this screed because I am typing this post on one, but they are not entirely blame-free. I cannot post a photo because I cannot access my WordPress app on Blackberry or Blackberry App World – doing so crashes my elderly Blackberry Bold.
What to do? The CE would suggest gathering up all abovementioned devices and hurling them against a wall so that they might never again rise up to interfere with that rarity known as a human conversation.
But Apple and WordPress and Blackberry all know they have me and pretty much everyone else in their thrall and I suspect they will continue to test our resolve – why, why, why no Adobe Flash on the iPad, Mr. Jobs? And iPad and WordPress – could you please learn to play nicely together?
End of rant. Polloplayer will resume next week. Thanks for listening!
