Top Ten Pet Peeves With Electronic Devices

PositronWildhawk

The Top Ten

1 Bad internet

I ABSOLUTELY HATE the following:

-404 page not found
-the page cannot be found
-a problem repeatedly occurred
-a problem occurred so this page was reloaded
-buffering videos
-apps crashing/freezing

This is really annoying. When it takes a full reboot to load a song, video, etc. - PositronWildhawk

I can’t stress how much I dislike it when I’m in the car and I have no service!

I hate when I’m trying to get on TTT and it won’t load

2 Battery dying

That's what makes me paranoid about my phone. I have never let it die before. That's why I alway have my phone charging, I take it out when it gets too hot, though. - Pegasister12

Always by surprise. Sometimes want to hit my iPad with a hammer, but won't, because it's valuable and I'm not crazy. - PositronWildhawk

3 Having it break

This happened to me and it was so annoying - ToptenPizza

4 Expense
5 Slow responses

Then it eventually freezes and crashes

How hard is it to open the bloody app? - PositronWildhawk

It takes a bloody hell long time

6 Dumb default setup

Took me hours to set my phone right after I got it! - PositronWildhawk

7 Everything's in a foreign language

Are you sure you can translate that well? I just sincerely hope I didn't say that. - PositronWildhawk

Luckily for you, PositronWildhawk, I can speak jibberish fluently and can translate. You roughly said: "Help! My left buttock is on fire and I need to know what the time was tomorrow."
So, now you know! - Britgirl

And, for the record, ka-ka-ka del coo-coo zin waca-waca von zuzu. Whatever that means. - PositronWildhawk

8 Inefficiency

So annoying when they take ages to charge up and it isn't long before they run flat. - PositronWildhawk

9 Being outdated quickly

Currently happy with my second generation iPad, but I give evil stares to those who show off their later models. - PositronWildhawk

I got my tablet for Christmas 2 years back, and people say it's "old". But it seems like I got it yesterday! - Turkeyasylum

10 Becomes useless as it ages

Unbelievable how long it takes my three-year-old macbook pro sometimes.

You need Cyanogenmod (or Lineage OS) on mobile, Linux on desktop. - Kaboom

The Newcomers

? When the screen goes black
? When certain webpages slow down your computer

The Contenders

11 Takes ages to turn on

Come on iPad...goes to the bathroom and comes back - ARE YOU SERIOUSLY STILL BLOODY LOADING?! - DapperPickle

Explodes I hate this...

12 Voice search misinterpreting what you say

Siri is dumb

13 When the app crashes
14 When you can't hear your ringtone

This happened to me a lot then my mom gets mad at me or not hearing it when the problem is my phone! >:(

15 When you drop your phone on your head
16 when the BSOD comes on
17 When a fake virus scam pops up
18 When ads pop up
19 When the progress bar gets stuck for hours
20 When everything freezes
21 When it deletes all your data
22 When the volume automatically goes up

This happens on my phone a lot

23 When the touch screen won't work properly

Once I tried to play a song on my phone and it swiped exposing the delete button instead

24 When it won’t charge

Sometimes when I plug my iPad into a charger, it won’t charge at all, even if I switched outlets.

25 When it is extremely slow
26 When it has been hacked
27 When the screen goes to sleep
28 When apps and webpages don't respond
