Best way to use android is, turn off account sync before doing 'any' account login on phone.
Settings -> Account.
BTW, you've still not seen email address in your phone book..!!!!!
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning
iPhone is the same thing. Possibly worse at times when a person replies to an account but the person you are replying to actually sends you email from one time and a text another, then things get all weird.
My friend mentioned it from his iPhone that I was showing up as a screen name from my amazon account in his iPhone. I have no idea how that all got connected on his iPhone.
I believe you meant why "technology" sucks today.
I finally got fed up, and since I failed my last annual eye test I decided to replace my three pairs of glasses: walk/drive, computer, and reading - all different distance and I always had the wrong ones on - with a single pair and go back to varifocals.
And I'd forgotten how much of a PITA they were in the early days. Picked them up this morning, my peripheral vision is permanently blurry, and I have to move my head about to get what I am looking at in the "sweet spot". Worst bit is the distance: while it's nice to be able to read road signs and what the car's computer is telling me I have to dip my head more than I'm used to to see where I'm going comfortably. And the computer? Nice and clear where I'm looking, but unless I sit right back in my chair, the other monitor is pretty much invisible. Which might be good in the long run in terms of posture... :sigh.
I know it will improve in a couple of days as I get used to it, but at the moment it's a PITA!
How many of us lot here use glasses / contacts / binoculars these days?
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
