I could have sworn my Android and I had finally made peace.
Things were going so well. The Droid had received a much-needed system update and has been functioning beautifully. No more battles, no headaches. I even had Collin add a Dragon voice recognition program so I could use my phone for dictation.
Then the Droid decided to exhibit its superiority...again.
I'd turn it off at night, but it would come back on. Frustrated, I started taking the battery out for a minute every night after turning the phone off. That seemed to be working. Until last night.
I'd turned it off, popped the battery out for a minute, then returned it to its case and put it in my crossbody bag. I was about to go to bed when I head a muffled sound coming from inside my bag. It was the panicked Minions ringtone I had assigned to weather alerts on the Droid.
The phone had turned itself back on. Once again.
I took it out of its case and popped the battery out again. This time, I left it out for a few minutes. It seemed to work. So far. I'm not holding my breath. My phones are like children in a way. My HTC Dash and my Kyocera Loft are easygoing, pleasant, and cooperative (for the most part). My Android is a brat willing to do anything just to be difficult.
Is this how Skynet plans to begin its attack on humanity? Will they start with our phones?
