Oh boy

I’m just not in the mood to do blogging right now even though I have an ample time to do so. Do you wanna know why I’m so unmotivated?

Hubbie’s office was broken in last night.

I was absolutely gobsmacked when Hubbie phoned me this morning from a front door of his office. He arrived at the door and saw a substantial damage on it with a huge padlock dangling from it…

This was what the police attached in order to secure the door.

Our neighbours, who lived above our office and reported the commotion to the police last night, saw two motorbikes and four guys speeding away from the street.

The actual damage, apart from the front door, was his five Macs. The thieves yanked them off from the desks and took them away. Luckily, they didn’t take any servers or cameras, therefore, they didn’t clean us out.

If you see this mark on your window or door, clean it right away!

A guy from another office on the same street had paid a visit to us and pointed out that the mark on our window was the same one which was left on his basement window. He claimed that the mark was a sign left by street criminals for members of local burglars so they would know which property to break in. And this particular one indicated which business premises had Macs in their office!

Our landlord came with a team of builders later so they could secure the front door. Their electric drill made a loud noise, and poor Bella was freaking out.

I don’t know when I feel like getting back to chronicling my road trip yet. I would like to but feel a bit too distracted…

You know what I mean…

The criminals made such a mess on my desk, and I am too depressed to sort it out right now… đŸ˜¦

Genius Bar @ Apple Store, Regent Street

2 days ago, my iPhone started to behave erratically. It stopped picking up wi-fi and refused to shut down properly. The battery was running out at alarming speed – I went to bed with my iPhone 100% charged and came next morning, found the phone only 36% power left. It was so unusual, unless I was sleep-surfing with my iPhone during the night!
As Apple’s help page suggested, I restarted the device, reset network, checked my broadband connection, etc, but nothing worked. A wi-fi setting button in my general setting was dimmed out, refusing to acknowledge all wi-fi networks around me. With a big resonating sigh, I made an appointment with the Genius Bar at the Apple Store, Regent Street. The nearest slot was at 1pm on Sunday so I grabbed it.

Oxford Street on Sunday…

The pavements were choking with Christmas shoppers. Their hands were laden with shopping bags of all colours and sizes. Some people were even tagging along suitcases. Were they from the outside London, day tripping for festive shopping?

I arrived at the Apple Store 10 minutes earlier than my appointment…

Image

The inside of the shop was teeming with Christmas shoppers and tourists alike…

Image

I was checked in by a friendly staff and ushered to one of the stools by the counter…

Image

Another staff came and ran a test on my iPhone…

Image

Alas, my phone had some internal damage which could not be fixed! How could this happen?! My phone was only one & half-year old! However, I couldn’t envisage my life without my iPhone, therefore, I bought a replacement there and then. I was shocked and saddened…

Image

At home, I tried to restore my email accounts on my iPhone but for some unknown reason, it failed to connect to servers. And with my dismay, the same thing happened on my iPad!!
Does that mean I will have to go back to the Genius Bar again? I groaned. I really loathed all this chores related to tech stuff. I am just a user /consumer, not a techno wizard…
