    Annoying couple of days

    Yesterday afternoon I decided that my cheap and cheerful Chinese phone didn't have much longer left for this world. It's been OK for around 11 months or so, but has recently decided to just open apps when it wanted to, and not when I wanted them opened, which was getting frustrating. I'd also...
