Burning Questions, Final Answers About Technology

from the plenty-of-stuff-you-don't-need-to-know-about dept

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard at a story coming out of Forbes. They list 68 important (mostly technology) questions and their own (often very bizarre) answers. There are some normal questions (“Which of the large tech companies has the most cash?”) but those aren’t nearly as interesting as some of the really bizarre ones (and I’m not even getting into their answers). Some of the odder questions: Will a cell phone stop a bullet as well as a Bible does? What does Esther Dyson actually do, and is she any good at it? How many bits in a nibble? And if technology increases productivity, why does automated directory assistance now take twice as long and work half as well? Definitely worth wasting a good 15 minutes or so reading for a laugh.
