My Technological Karma Continues its Downward Slide

My phone died last night. The phone which I’ve had, you know, for not very long at all. Now I must away to a Verizon store and get a new one.

This is my way of saying that for the next few hours at least, contact will be intermittent. Best to send me e-mail. My computer is still working.

  1. Hey John, is it physically broken, or are you having some kind of software issue? If it’s software, I may be able to point you in the right direction so you can fix it yourself….

  2. It seems like the devices are lost/die only when they are in your possession — or near your person. Maybe it isn’t karma at all. Maybe it is something else. I would think this would be obvious for the author of REDSHIRTS. ;-)

  3. I have a twig that’s burnt on one end. Rubbing it on a smooth surface will leave markings. And I also have some smooth white bark from a malaluka tree. Is excellent for mark making. Might be time to go retro.

  4. A mysterious force making John’s electronics come to grief would make more sense if he were prepared to emote over them in a Shatneresque fashion:
    Whateverites!… I… just… bought…. this… phone!

  5. FWIW you have a (Galaxy) Nexus, which means it’s almost impossible to destroy, software-wise. That’s why it’s popular amongst the hacking/rooting/etc crowd. What happened?

  6. the same thing happened to me, but since you’ve had it < 1 year, Samsung will replace it, no questions asked. You will be without it for a few days, and lose your data, but you'll get a brand new (in box!) one after… their website has all the details
