    So, I use a blackberry leap and for those who don't know, this device came out in 2015 and runs on OS10. So I went to do a normal device back-up on blackberry link, when all of a sudden it asked for a password. Now I thought that this was a little bit strange, as it never asked me for my device password (other than to unlock my device) to perform a normal back-up. So I entered my password and I swear I had one of those moments where I stopped breathing. "Initializing device wipe" and "re loading device software" appeared on the screen. I was about to cancel the process when the words "Your device might not function properly if you unplug or terminate this process" were in small print on the pop-up. Thankfully, all of my media (photos, videos, documents and music were already backed-up onto the media card. So no issues there. But for my contacts, accounts, apps, the Google play store and all of those apps along with existing SMS/Viber/BBM conversations...gone! I spent the next week trying to figure out who's who and I'm just finishing entering all of my 93 contacts into my phone. Lesson learned, always double check what you're going to do before you actually do it. -_-

    I'm not sure "funny" is the right word.

    I mean, a story about stupidity could also work...

    Hi, Fred, this is Richard, next door. I've got a confession to make.
    I've been riddled with guilt for a few months and have been trying to
    get up the courage to tell you face-to-face. At least I'm telling you
    in this text and I can't live with myself a minute longer without you
    knowing about this. The truth is that when you're not around I've
    been sharing your wife, day and night. In fact, probably much more than
    you. I haven't been getting it at home recently and I know that
    that's no excuse. The temptation was just too great. I can't live
    with the guilt and hope you'll accept my sincere apology and forgive
    me. Please suggest a fee for usage and I'll pay you.
    Regards, Richard


    Fred, feeling so angered and betrayed, grabbed his gun and shot Richard --killing him.
    He went back home and poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa.

    Fred then looked at his phone and discovered a second
    Text message from Richard.


    Hi, Fred. Richard here again. Sorry about the typo on my last text. I
    expect you figured it out and noticed that the @!*+ed Auto-Correct had
    changed "wi-fi" to "wife." Technology, huh? It'll be the death of us all.
    regards Richard
