Updates Utopia

As I am typing this post, my desktop is sluggish. Another update is going on in the background. As a matter of fact, in the last three days I mostly used desktop Windows PC, Windows tablet, and Android phone. My tablet forced an update that slowed me down last morning. My desktop updated a large program, which resulted in about 5-minute slow down. My phone seemed to always be updating something. And, it was just a matter of random chance whether my text app or maps or email on the phone were slightly sluggish because something was also updating in the background. There were random program update offers too. I was in the middle of doing something else at the time, but was sidetracked into getting “the new most advance and secure” version that looked identical to the old one in my naive “user view”.

So, from now on, I am updating my “terms of use” of all software out there that I am using. It would be in the best interest for our continued relationship that software provider is allowed to disturb me with updates only on the last Sunday of a given month at 3 am by my time, wherever I happen to be. This agreement will supersede any our prior agreements. This generous offer on my part will be replaced with a more restrictive terms of only twice a year update allowance, if software providers do not honor this agreement.

Ya right… this is going to work. Back to reality…
