The other night, Halloween night in fact, I was using my smartphone to view a video, as formerly people would do on a television or computer screen. All of a sudden, Chrome crashed and the phone restarted itself. No big deal, right? Except it froze on the Verizon screen. As it stayed there, I realized I was going into full-on panic mode. The power button wouldn't do anything, and with these models, you can't remove the battery yourself. Whatever was I going to do?
Thankfully, I was able to find a solution (hold the power button down and volume up for 10 seconds to reboot and hope like mad it progresses past the Verizon screen this time, otherwise you're probably screwed). It worked, and things were back to normal.
I was born in that time frame that makes me not sure whether I'm part of Generation X or a millennial, but I have come to realize that my dependence on smartphone technology may make me fall into the latter category.
Or maybe it was goblins... Halloween, after all.
