Technology might drive me crazy!
Sometimes I want to grab technology by the throat and throw it out the window!
Recently, the headphone jack on my laptop decided it was no longer going to co-operate. Soooo, being sick of cables all over the place, I got smart and went off and bought a pair of Akai Bluetooth Headphones!
I tried it out first, on my iPad. Works like a dream! Then I paired it with my iPhone. Works like a dream!
But I particularly wanted it to use with my laptop, a Sony Vaio (ok, it is 8 years old now) so that I can listen to and watch my training tutorials and other DVD tutorials which I have, on the laptop.
Would my laptop co-operate with my shiny, new headphones? Not a chance. It would just not pair up. The laptop found the device and kept on saying "loading drivers" then just when you thought it was going to be ok, up pops the message "drivers not loaded successfully". Try as I might, I could not get them paired up, so I decided to try on my little notebook. Same story! My neighbour tried; he even brought round his little USB bluetooth thingie but that didn't work either.
So maybe I wasn't so smart after all....maybe I should have bought a Wireless headset instead? Unless, anyone have a spare Apple Mac lying around that they'd like to get rid of?? LoL!
After wasting a fair amount of hours, I finally retreated back to my little corner in the sitting room to watch my WA tutorials on my iPad with my headphones firmly attached to my ears!
