The latest Apple update has corrupted the Safari links on my mobile devices. I'm forced to use my laptop to surf the web for porn.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

It cost me more to have my (Ikea) curtains resized then it did to buy them.

Its a fine line between First World problems and being Switzerlanded

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I made the mistake of answering a question on Facebook, and got myself down the rabbit hole of an online debate with an anti-vaxxer.

Someone on the internet is wrong!!!!!

Couldn't find the exact shade I wanted in "my" brand of hair dye. Had to go with Dark Garnet. Sound like a bit player off Tatooine...

Laid up in bed unwell over Easter allowed me the time to watch all the period dramas on Netflix.

There are none left

Can't get past level 315 on candy crush and now the battery is nearly empty on my tablet. Looks like I'll have to use my phone or laptop.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Never ever had any Apple product to crash unexpectedly on me before. But today my iPhone 6plus switched off for no reason just like that. Hard reset multiple times didn't help. Eventually, it woke up after gazillion of attempts connected to iTunes. Spent hours on restoring it back to original state, to find out that later in the evening it has crashed again. WTF?

I am really furious because its not only a mere smartphone to me but its my daily business and life. I wanna go to Glattbrug tomorrow first thing in the morning and have a serious talk with Apple. (I hope its not fecken iOS9.3.1 update bug) ... Normally, I am a cool guy, but today I'm really pissed off.
