It's got to be easier and quicker to load things on to the phone while it's plugged in, hasn't it?
Not so as you would notice. The time line bar started out at five hours! There's only one thing to do when you are left gawping at that sort of time span, apart from wishing the bandwidth of the local broadband was a bit broader and niftier; (the polite version of my thoughts.) A few moments on and the time line bar was reducing by an hour, two hours, then, yay! three hours. "Come on you can go just a bit more" It stuck at offering me two hours for the downloads. It said two hours and it did just exactly what it said it would do. No further willing, wishing, silent cajoling, was going anywhere.
I checked the progress bar a few times between preparing and cooking the veggies and it seemed to be enjoying itself, stuck on one spot.....two ***@@@*** hours! So I got busy with other things, settled down to relax for the evening and forgot all about it.
Darn it - just getting ready for bed and remembered I had the whole kit and caboodle wired up and the computer still switched on and busy. At least the time line bar had disappeared, and various things had put themselves in position all by themselves. Isn't technology magic.
Now some of my favourite apps have to be updated, more time...
