Disadvantages: The whole lot is annoying, pointless and not welcome in my ultimate paradise.
Alright, ill get straight to the point, there have been a number of things over the years that make me angry, upset or downright disgusted about but here i have comprised a list for my room 101 additions. The following are in no particular order. They are all dreadful.
Everywhere you go, every brand has fanboys. For those that dont know, a fanboy is someone who defends a brand no matter what they do, even if they drain your bank account or burn your car (for example)
I was playing forza motorsport 4 and the update didnt come when it was supposed to, and arrived 1 week later than scheduled. Im sorry but i paid £60 for the game i expect an update on time. Yet all the turn 10 fanboys were saying oh well its a free update, turn 10 are good people they just have a lot on their hands and we should be greatful for an update. Er... No? £60 isnt free, they have minimal staff, and this update was to make the online games WORK because they were broken in the first place?! I wont be greatful, im disgusted it didnt work when i bought the game and i demand a free update!
> iPad restrictions because Apple is greedy.
The ipad has such a potential to be a great Device, it has the potential to be the future by replacing laptops, computers and even games consoles yet Apple have limited it because they are greedy. Which is why i jailbroke mine, so it IS the future. Allow me to explain:
Apple put a limit of 16, 32, 64GB on their tablets and this isnt enough, especially to use it as a replacement computer, so when i jailbroke it i put iFile on to add an external Hard Drive. You cant run flash, so if you install Frash you can, you cant upload to the web (if you get a third party browser you can) you cant use a mouse (I have a mouse with jailbreak) and you cant customise the spring board without jailbreaking because it damages apples so perfect design. I want 8 apps in my dock, so i did it. My iPad is the future allready, just by jailbreaking it! Apples restrictions are stupid, i paid for the iPad ill do what i want with it!
> wind turbines (those giant desk fans)
They ruin the country side and seaside, they are huge and pointless, and produce only a very very small proportion of our electricty. Furthermore they dont work half the time. We need geothermal, solar and wave power, wind isnt working, i dont think these are the way foward, lets get on with the other forms of renewable energy. They look like giant desk fans to me.
> txt spk
Anyone who sends me a message with text speak gets a message sent back saying "what on earth are you talking about?" making them deliberately spend time typing it out again fully, wasting their money and loosing all the time they saved.
I once got a text saying "r8 m8 wot u don tonit u wanna go 2 pub " and whilst i get the jist of it, this is what is happening to English today, people use this txt spk all the time and our literacy is going down the toilet, particularly in younger people. I sent him a message back asking him to speak english. I got a reply which was "pub?"
I cant think of anymore right now, but these are my 4 that were really on the top of my head, the 4 i really hate.
Summary: Get rid!!!
