Conspiracy? Not.

Posted on: April 1, 2019

I am not one for conspiracy theories, but a casual observer might say I am living one — the items I need for work have synchronised breakdowns.

Holes appeared in my favourite shoes, my laptop backpack is starting to fall apart, my Macbook periodically freezes and shuts down, and my iPad battery is bloated. All this in a space of about a week or two.

Truth be told, I only noticed the holes and wear on my shoes and bag when they became obvious. They did not appear overnight when seemingly signalled by my iPad and Macbook.

If I think about it, my shoes have lasted a few years, and even though I do not wear them every day, I walk in them more. When I visit new campuses or work environments, I make the effort to explore and my shoes get a work out.

I carry a fair bit in my laptop bag because I want to be prepared for any instructional eventuality. This means I carry a small house on my back. I have worn through my share of bags, so this is not unusual.

My iPad started losing battery capacity several weeks ago, but I ignored this and kept charging it up instead of getting a battery replacement. This probably stressed the battery.

Apple SSD programme.

My laptop, on the other hand, was working fine until I brought it in when I received a notification from Apple for a free servicing for an SSD issue. I had not previously experienced “data loss and failure of the drive”. But the freezing and shutting down started happening after the servicing.

So there is no conspiracy. But there is a going to be a larger-than-usual credit card bill as I pay to get the items repaired or replaced.
