I rushed (virtually) to the App Store to download a copy of this trumpet simulator app after seeing this story on the news:
App iTrump wins trademark fight against Trump Organization
I used to love blowing my own trumpet and now I can do it on my iPhone.
I was pleased to pay £2.99 - and judging by the comments on the app, I wasn’t the first person to do so as a sort of a statement.
I’m without my smartphone for a few days after it had a close encounter with some tarmac. I’ve lost a few superpowers: the ability to use Whatsapp and online banking. Most annoyingly I miss the ability to switch the lights on and off in my kitchen.
That’s only the case because we were using flic buttons to do it via Bluetooth (after another domestic mishap in which we lost our light switch).
You know when you’re on a call to someone, mobile to mobile, and the call drops? How often do you ring back, only to find the other person is ringing you back, so you both end up talking to voicemail. Wait a second, though: are they ringing back? You’ve no way to tell. Perhaps they’ve gone into a tunnel or something.
It’s a bit like looking for someone in a supermarket: if they move around looking for you, while you’re walking around looking for them.
