Started last week by Delores at The Feathered Nest, today is "what irritates you Monday"
and for me, irritation number two is internet connections.
More accurately, LACK of internet connections.
I'm living in an internet blackhole!
Or so close to it, there's really not much difference.
Just yesterday, I turned on my laptop, connected to the internet and got about ten minutes before being unceremoniously shut down.
Remotely shut down, with a nice little window saying"connection to remote computer has been reset and this port has been closed" or something similar, I don't remember the exact wording.
This happens often.
Still, the times I'm able to get on and stay on serve me well enough, (just ignore the stamping of feet and throwing of stuff, okay?)
But things are about to get worse, according to an article in last Saturday's newspaper.
Here it is, word for word.....
"Phone glut to jam networks
A billion new smart-phones sold world-wide in 2013 will increase pressure on the already crowded mobile broadband spectrum, leading to increased network dropouts and slowdowns, a report says.
The year ahead will also see the rise of the big-screened "phablet" phone, internet connected and ultra-high definition "4K" televisions, says the Deloitte Technology, Media and Telecommunications Predictions 2013 report.
Deloitte Australia telecommunications partner Stuart Johnston said annual global smart-phone shipments are expected to exceed one billion for the first time. "
This will mean less and less access for us "little people", because you can bet big business will get first crack at whatever access is available.
Not happy, Jan!!!
What's your irritation for today?
