Anyone that knows me knows how much I love my macbook, or really any apple product in general. In my opinion, Macs are just so much simpler than PCs. Yet, regardless of how much I love my mac, it has been on my bad side these past several weeks.
It all started when I was trying to run my updates for my computer. It wouldn't let me update Itunes because it said I didn't have the latest version of OSX (Apple's version of Windows). No big deal, I though, I don't need the new version of itunes any way. WRONG. Now my iphone won't connect to my computer because of my old version of itunes. Also, I can't download any new software because of my old version of OSX.
So after doing research, I realized that I just needed the new version of OSX and I would be set to go. It's only $30, so I didn't really mind. I ordered the software and it came in last week. When it arrived on my doorstep, I excitedly brought it in to install on my handy dandy macbook.
Seems I don't have enough RAM to install it. The Apple people never bothered to tell me I might need more ram.
So off I venture to MegaByte, our apple care provider here in NWA. Me and the people at MegaByte are on a first name basis by now, as often as I've been there.
Still not complaining, I love my mac. I'm loyal.
So they install 3x the amount of RAM on my computer for a little under $100. Ok... getting more pricey here, but still not so bad.
I get home, once again anxious to install my new software.
It won't work. It makes my computer make funny noises and freeze.
So I eject the software and resume using my old outdated version of OSX hoping maybe today I might be able to install it.
Side note... Last night we went out to dinner for a surprise Birthday party for one of my best friends, Ashley. As I was getting ready I had my pandora set to Nelly (my favorite getting ready station haha). As I was leaving, I simply shut my computer.
So I get to school this morning, open up my macbook ready to instruct my students, and it BLASTS Ludacris. Frantically I try to hit the volume button (dosen't work), I try to close the computer.... it's still blaring "bend over to front, touch your toes". My face is growing redder by the minute. I turn the computer off.... Ahhh... silence.
I turn the computer back on..... it BLARES "we want a lady in the street but a freak in the sheets".
Dear Macbook.... we might have to break up.
