OT: Switch it off and back on ...

My wife is always annoyed / amused that my stock response to any
non-trivial computer / broadband / phone problem is the magic
"power-cycle" method. As she says "4 years getting a BSc in Computer
Science, 25 years in the electronics design and software business - and
that's the best you can do". I suspect the most annoying part for her is
that it nearly always works :-)
Anyway, today that technique just worked again - when even I didn't
expect it to. Her new iPhone (two weeks old) was in trouble - it
wouldn't charge. We tried multiple different connector cables, and power
sources just to be sure - but it just wouldn't register the power
supply, and power was down to around 10%. So I made sure we had a
current iCloud backup, installed Telegram on her iPad while she still
had some charge left (to get the SMS to confirm the main phone number)
so she could still get/send messages (and let the main contacts know via
What's App). And then (with NO expectations of success) switched it off
and back on - and the darn thing is now happily charging.
Why can't we build tech items that don't suffer such problems and get
fixed by this solution ....
