Anyone else have it. ?
High tech really needs to go.
If it doesn't serve a useful purpose and make my life easier rather than more complicated, I'll avoid it.
biggest problem----people think they know how to use it and they think it's reliable.
Who cares if it's bright, shiny, new, cutting edge, and does groovy stuff?
"It's a can opener, it's an asphalt spreader - it's 67 tools in one!"
none of which works as well as talking to each other directly.
Oh, the irony.
You both have a computer and post on message boards.
Consumerism screws up technology. They make useless changes in computer hardware and software to have different styles year after year.
There are major corporations that are still running COBOL programs from the 1960s. So why does software need to be upgraded every year and then they stop providing support for the old version?
It is not about making good use of computers it is about cash flow.
This stuff could easily be made more than 4 times as reliable as it is. With passive backplanes most desktop computers could have been made upgradeable by changing the circuit board with the CPU and memory. Why buy a case and power supply and most other components. Keep a computer 10 years or more instead of upgrading every 3 years.
The technology is screwed up for the money.
Do you tell the neighbor kids to get off your lawn??
no--I mean people relying on technology to do everything for them ensuring that they can't do shit for themselves.
