Success!.... I think.... - Blather. Rants. Repeat.
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
Success!.... I think....
Woke up for slopping the hogs around 5, deleted all the music on my phone.  Still not enough room for the iOS 7 install.

Deleted a bunch of pictures that had already been Clouded. That was enough. Started the download and went back to sleep.

Woke again to the new white-background iWorld. Went to sync to get everything back. Found they've moved podcasts to a separate app. Downloaded it.

Started the sync. With the extra app and the extra 7 bits, I needed to purge some tunes. Did.

Then noticed a butt-ton of old podcasts, not specified for sync, had downloaded themselves and were clogging the series of tubes.  Apparently, the Podcasts app is factory-set to "download every available podcast on your list whether you want it to or not."

Fixed that. Found sudden amounts of room.

Got all wanted music on, plus OneDrive, which will, hopefully, make this easier next time.

Which, apparently, will be in like a week, because now that I've finally conquered iOS 7, they've gone and come out with iOS 8.

Just iShoot me now.

Don't touch iOS 8. Really. If you have anything older than an iPhone 5, iOS 8 doesn't run so much as walk sedately. Or perhaps crawl.

But I assume it will still push the 8-available update notification onto my poor ol four, and leave a number one on my settings icon until I finally dump the thing.

Because Mother Apple knows what's good for you.

And what's good for you is an iPhone 6.

See? Isn't that simple?

Technology comes under the Discretionary category, but in fact it's right up there with the refrigerator and washing machine as appliances that require regular replacement.

Nah, you'll just plug in to the biocord and it'll work like a dream. And you can thank us early beta testers for getting all the bugs out;)
