The dangers of relying on your iPhone

Normally when I am going to a new address I will print out a map before leaving. I had to get to a seminar yesterday and had the address details stored in my online calendar which I thought I could access through my iPhone and then Google up a map when I came out of the tube station rather than printing. Unfortunately the wonder device was throwing a near windows like wobbly and could not connect to the internet so no access to Google Maps. Fortunately I was able to resort to the old fashioned technique of asking someone for directions.

Lessons learnt:

  1. Don’t be quite so dependent on technology
  2. The iPhone is a bit like Windows, when it stops working switch it off and switch it back on again! Shame I only learnt that at the end of the day
