The Anonymous Widower

I Have Just Been Microsofted!

I run Office 365 and today it updated itself.

Now nothing in the suite works.

I don’t like automatic updates, as they have this power to drop you deep in it.

I usually only upate software, when there is a problem!

  1. Best IT thing I’ve ever done is ditch Microsoft and switch to Apple. Now I never have any computer problems.

  2. But then Apple are rip-off merchants! They are also incompatible with other software systems!

    Note that today is the 14th, when all the automatic updates kick in!

  3. Surprisingly, I don’t think Apple is a rip off; all operating systems upgrades are free downloads – I have just upgraded my iMac to iOS Mojave. I run 365 for Mac on it, and it gives me no problems. If I do have a problem I contact Apple by email, with my phone number, and they call me to talk me through how to fix it. If I agree, I can let the engineer into my computer, online, for him to fix things. The “computer” bit is the back of the screen, unlikely to to get coffee spilt on it. I use a touchpad instead of a mouse, which suits my disability, especially since I had my finger removed. I have a little box called an AirPort, which collects and saves everything I do, automatically.
    And I have had got twice of as long out if it than most people get out of PCs, and it is working as well as it did the day I bought it. So to me, they aren’t a rip off they are an investment.
