"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Oh! but you can remove you're internal storage 'hard disk' and configure it to work like external hard disk to recover your data @GemmaRowlands

    I don't think I can @peaceculture2 because I had a MacBook Pro and apparently the storage isn't removable??

    I use my mobile phone in my daily need basis.. Especially for communicating with my relatives in a different counrty.. Imagine life without my mobile phone.. It sucks!

    I can remember not having a mobile phone when I was younger, and we coped, but now that I know what life is like with it I don't think I could live without it again!

    @GemmaRowlands I think that time was awesome as we could have a lot chances to socialize and enjoy the life. Now, it is difficult to stay away from the mobile for a second.

    I basically use my phone for Skype sessions. :)
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,718 mod
    Yes I dread to think how many times I must check my phone each day @Bubbly but I know it is a lot.

    Yup buddy. It's already part of our daily routine.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,718 mod
    You ask an interesting question @kk02092001 and I don't think that we would be able to cope. I know that I do everything on it - talking to friends and family, my banking, taking photos.. if I didn't have it, I would have to seriously rethink a lot of my life!

    It could be depressing if these gadgets will disappear in an instant as if they weren't existing at all! I couldn't agine my life without these gadgets. These were already part of our daily activities. :)

    Yes that's true - yet I can remember life before them, and everything actually seemed better in comparison to the way it is now!

    Exactly. I mostly enjoyed my time in library rather than in computer shops. ;)

    These days, I am using my mobile for whatsapp because I have to do combined studies. So, it is the best way to communicate with my group. :)
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,790 mod
    Have you tried the Smule app @GemmaRowlands. @christelle has introduced this app to me during our Karaoke sessions. :)

    I switched on my mobile phone yesterday to check a phone number. It's the first time it's been on since I left Nepal three weeks ago!

    Perhaps because its charge isn't used at all because you left it there unused? :)
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,718 mod
    Yes I used to have that app @kindgnice and I have an account on there - but it used too much of my internet so I deleted it!

    Hehe, I haven't tried to record there yet, but I'm waiting for @christelle for her turn about the new song that we're planning to duet, I Know What You Did Last Summer by Shawn Mendez and Camila Cabello. She'll share the music to me since I'm not a VIP member there. Hehe :)

    I forgot my French simcard in Kathmandu @kindgnice. Since I don't have many calls to make in the two weeks I'm here, I can't be bothered with the hassle and expense of getting a replacement just for such a short time. Email works fine and if I need to call, I can Skype call any number I want.

    Since you mentioned the word 'Skype', can we see you in Skype sessions soon? ;)

    As of now I use my phone as an Alarm and phone calls too but its more for Alarm need to wake up early every morning so I use to keep 4-5 Alarms to wake up :lol:
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,790 mod
    I mostly use my phone for Skype sessions and participating here in LEO. :)
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,718 mod
    So you certainly make the most of the alarm function on your phone then @abhishekb9099 ! I have never needed more than 1 alarm to wake me up, personally.
  • abhishekb9099abhishekb9099 Posts: 1,030 ✭✭✭✭
    @GemmaRowlands Yeah it varies from person to person. What I use to do is to snooze again and again but now I am habitual with my timings and I wake up before my alarm rings.
