I’m really bad about updating software and backing up data.
I lost my iPhone in Las Vegas last week and had to buy a new one, discovering in the process that I had somehow only successfully saved a few of my contacts and calendar entries to iCloud, which sucked. But what sucked MORE is that when I attempted to sync my new iPhone to my MacBook, my MacBook was all “wtf is this iPhone 5 that’s not a thing because it’s TWO THOUSAND FUCKING EIGHT YOU IDIOT. YEAH THAT’S RIGHT, YOU HAVEN’T UPGRADED YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM SINCE LEOPARD CAME OUT SO WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS FUTURE PHONE IS AND OH YEAH YOU CAN’T EVEN UPGRADE YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM TO MOUNTAIN LION NOW BECAUSE YOU NEEDED TO HAVE UPGRADED TO SNOW LEOPARD FIRST THREE FUCKING YEARS AGO WHEN EVERYONE ELSE DID SO YEAH HAVE FUN SPENDING THE NEXT FOUR HOURS INCREMENTALLY UPGRADING OPERATING SYSTEMS SO THAT YOU CAN PUT N*SYNC AND TAKING BACK SUNDAY AND WHATEVER OTHER GARBAGE IS IN YOUR ITUNES LIBRARY BACK ON YOUR PHONE.”
My MacBook is a dick.
