Lollipop Rant 200+: Turn on WiFi on Lollipop 5.1. the original ASUS Nexus 7 2012 device and you're asking for sure Reboot.

Somehow, the newest Android OS has somehow forgotten what the Internet Is. And when it gets confused, which is quite often, the only choice it seems to have Is Reboot.

In the old window days, we used to call this the Blue Screen of Death. Now, in the "modern" era (a word so close to Error), we start juggling google colored balls. One of the few google animations I've really grown to hate.

Here we are, going on 8 months of the new Android os that Even Apple made fun of at WWDC by pointing out that adoption of the new. Android OS was in the low teens. (yes, 12% roughly and I do mean roughly). Jellybean and Kitkat are both in the mid 40's.

Even DSL, damn small Linux knows how to get on the internet, but Lollipop ? The jury is still out on that one.

And what, if anything, is Anybody Doing about it???

As we are still at 5.1.1 (since January 2015, mind you) it appears Not Much.

That's it. I had my say.

Lollipop 5.1.1 Working with an android OS that has no idea what it is doing.

In December 2014, lollipop 'escaped'. I can't believe it was released in the sad shape it was in to the 2012 ASUS Nexus 7 tablet owners.

In 7 months the lollipop offering has been a "not ready for primetime" effort.

Turn on WiFi and that's when the 'games' begin.

Lollipop is unable to lock-on to an internet connection. What is worse it doesn't have a clue why it can't log on. Somehow, lollipop knows there is a problem but has no idea what it is. It throws up a notification box in the middle of the screen with a guess error spoof:
< blah-blah > is not responding, would you like to A) Report B) Wait or C) Close the program.
Most of the time, the three choices cannot receive Input.
And reverts to the Only thing lollipop seems to be able to do 'well'.
It reboots.
Or it asks if you would like to Power Off the OS.

That's when you think: "gee, I really miss Windows right. now!"

Lollipop 5.1.1 still has a Crap-Load of Problems that google Can't seem to be able to Fix after 7+ months!!! Any wonder why only 12% of Android users have moved to it?

Back in Android lollipop land of 5.1.1 cycles in reboot-hell. How long does it take google to FIX THIS PROBLEM?

I'm basically recharging my 2012 Asus Nexus 7 tablet to ReBoot or suggest Power Off instead locking on to the internet.

Turn on WiFi and Lollipop can't even begin to deal with it!
