    Even Yodel are doing a good job for a change. Hope the estimated delivery will shorten but with the bank holiday, I'm not hopeful

    SERIOUSLY getting pissed off with Apple. I feel like throwing my iPod touch in the bin, it's pissing me off.

    The useless iCloud it can't sync ****. The notes folder in the mail app disappeared, I've ended up with a new Apple ID that I don't ****ing want, I had to do a FULL reset so I've lost EVERYTHING (well **** got it on the ****ty iTunes) but that doesn't ****ing matter because iTunes on Windows is like thinking you won the jackpot but realising you never bought a ticket because you are too ****ing lazy too.

    15th hour trying to find a solution to why my notes won't sync:

    1) Ended up with a @me.com e-mail address I don't want
    2) Ended up ringing arranging for Apple technical support line to ring me (and yet I don't know if I will be charged). It could get worse if I get charged because I will go into a (minus) with Halifax and have to pay a penalty of £10.
    3) Notes never worked originally because it was down for >2% of people and I happened to be one of them BUT yet the guy on the phone didn't mention this, I found out online.
    4) FULL reset. Have to sync everything, adjust settings etc...
    5) I've got an extra Apple ID that I don't want so now I'm waiting for them to cancel it (hopefully they won't cancel the one with the purchases) or I'd be really pissed off.
    6) My card won't get accepted in my original account so that's pissing me off as well.

    /rant

    I now see why you lot dislike Apple.

    Yodel are utterly utterly incompetent.

    Incompetent is too nice a word...

    Nope. There's always a fix or a work around.

    Why have some of my files disappeared? I was moving some files around and suddenly 2-3 folders I think disappeared. Search get the results and shows they are where they were, but when you "open file location", they don't turn up i.e. "refers to a location which is unavailable".

    edit: fixed it

    Anyone know what is wrong here?
    Have you checked the recycle bin and hidden folders?

    Lesson to be learned here:

    Never, ever, ever Cut and Paste files. Use Copy and Paste, then delete the source files. I've lost far, far too many bits (and bytes! :awesome: ) of data due to bad cut and paste operations.

    I've never had any problems with ebuyer, but then again I have only used them about 5 times.

    Maybe you seem dodgy so they decide to check you out

    Just read a post on HUKD replying to a laptop deal:

    I know I stand in line until you think you have the time
    To spend an evening with me
    And if we go someplace to dance, I know that there's a chance
    You won't be leaving with me
    And afterwards we drop into a quiet little place and have a drink or two
    And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like "Intel® HD Graphics"
    Can't help but think; :lolwut:

    I take it you've never had a hardware problem?

    Not much you can hack if your RAM chip (I think that's the term, the controller for RAM) goes kaput, a capacitor on your mobo springs a leak or your hard drive dies. Unless you call disaster recovery hackery magic for the last one.
