This Thing finally forced me to update my OS. I had been ignoring it for quite a long time for reasons, mainly because I just didn’t want to deal with it. But I did it, and it’s not so bad after all. I guess. It’s a lot brighter than it had been, which I suppose isn’t really a complaint so much as an observation. And I don’t like how my weather app of choice displays after the update, but if the worst thing that happens is that I have to find a new (free) weather app, then it’s probably not a crisis. It’s probably barely even a #firstworldproblem.
I did do some of the stuff suggested in one of the Pocket Lint posts to prolong battery life; I haven’t seen a marked difference, but I think that’s just the nature of the beast. I’d like to update my phone’s OS as well, but it doesn’t currently have enough space on it, and I’m not sure I can fine enough things to delete. So that ship might have sailed.
So I guess that means I’m ready to start Thinging it up.
