The Latest Techie Complaints
from the never-gonna-be-satisfied dept
So what does a techie have to complain about these days? It what must have been a fairly cathartic column, one tech columnist just tossed a few of his tech complaints into a single column that doesn’t even bother trying to tie them all together. The three big complaints: (1) every time he finds a product he likes, it gets bought by another larger company (and, he implies, the larger company then kills what he liked about the product) (2) it’s increasingly difficult to actually find stuff you want on a search engine and (3) plug and play often plugs, but doesn’t play. The best part, though, is his description of the inevitable phone call after the new device doesn’t work: “Is your computer turned on? Are you connected using a USB or firewire cable? Do you have more than a fifth-grade education?” Something about tax day seems to bring out people’s complaining nature.

Heh. Well, I’m hoping that AC’s complaint was just to prove the point of the last sentence of my post… that something about today brings out complaints… as proven here in the comments. 🙂

Mike, Glad to see you have a sense of humor !
Yes, that was my intention exactly !
Since when did Andy Rooney write a technical colum
Rants are fine, but it looks to me like the writer was ‘on deadline’ as well as the editor. The article was about as satisfying as that low-carb bread or chocolate-chip cookies that are appearing in stores.

I used to work in the computer city in that town, and I can safely say that this guy is just like everybody else in Corpus Christi when it comes to computers….. clueless.
