Why Apple Make Life Miserable?

I posted earlier about subscribing to U Mobile Broadband for my iPad internet access. Apple make things difficult for users when they introduce the nano SIM after Samsung (SIII) shrink them from normal SIM to Mini SIM.

When I subscribed I did not reload with the RM40 for internet access. When I visit U Mobile at Berjaya Times Square to change to Nano SIM card, the normal SIM I purchased earlier was made invalid when they move my subscription to the Nano SIM.

Well, I learn a new lesson. How to reload on the iPad. Personnel at U Mobile told me I cannot do it on my iPad. I have to buy a SIM adapter and reload it using the normal phone. So I had to fork out another RM10 for the adapter. Al in All before I can access the net on my iPad, I have to pay RM68.00.

So now you can see the hassle Apple created to their Apple mobile gadget user? Now I have to eject the Nano SIM, insert it into the adapter, shove it into a mobile phone, reload, eject, take out the Nano SIM and reinsert back into my iPad. It will be a routine, if I stay on.

I just wonder why not U Mobile follow YES when subscribers can reload online even if there is no credit in the account. Subscriber can still get connected to YES for the reload process. Technology should make life easier and not the other way round.

Waze Make Me Lost In Putrajaya

I wanted to test and try using waze this morning for my trip to Putrajaya. One on my mobile phone and another ony my iPad. 

Everything was smooth until I reached Putrajaya. Waze on my mobile phone lead me to Precint 11 when I set as Lebuh Perdana Putrajaya. At one point, the voice alert on mobile phone tell me to turn right while on my iPad asked me to turn left. I get lost in Precint 11. 

However I use my instinct tells me too ditch both GPS aided directions. I switch to google map and use it to guide me to Precint 2. It also helps that I some sort of knew Putrajaya and manage to arrive to my destination not with the help of Waze but Google map. 

So can you totally trust GPS aided route to reach your destination. However this maybe an isolated case because a few days back it lead me to the right location in Skudai. 

I am not accusing Waze of giving me the wrong direction but it just gave me the wrong direction. 

The night before I tested a route from Kinrara to my home in Jalan Bukit Jalil Indah 4 but it keep giving me the route to another location at Kinrara. 

I just wonder why waze do not have the function point on map just like Google Map. It can help if one do not not know the name of the location.
