    I had to go back to the store to learn how to turn on my new Mac.

    I spent 8 years trying to teach my old business partners wife to turn on a Mac, she finally got it a week before I quit!

    This dilemma is reminding me that I need to re-learn how to activate my video DVD/Blu-ray player.

    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    Also, you have to get firmware updates periodically for a DVD/Blu-ray player, also. Isn’t technology great? !!!

    I bought a laptop that could play BlueRays… and found out the video program couldn’t handle the classic Star Trek bluerays. It kept nagging me to pay for an update so it could play the ‘new DVD’s’ that were older that the damn laptop!
    I finally downloaded a trial program that plays them … but has a constant reminder on the screen that it’s only an unregistered version.
    My PS3 plays them without any trouble, but it’s not as portable!

    Every year when switching from summer to winter time (and vice versa) I have to check the manual on how to change the time on our microwave.

    There was a long involved joke a few years ago about a seemingly illogical process on a computer (I wish I could remember what it was) that ended when the newbie asked the tech how to turn it off and was told, "Go to ‘Start.’.

    I would never make it as a ‘phone technical support’ person. The first idiotic remark by the person calling would probably have me tell them to box up their computer and send it back for a refund. All those stories about people using the hole in the CD/DVD disc tray for a coffee cup holder can’t be wrong.

    Thankfully, these comments is my sole knowledge of Macs. Any computer that requires more than an on switch to start it would be trash in my book.

    I just push the power button then type in my password. Am I doing it wrong? Is there some secret process I don’t know about?

    You’ve also forgotton to switch your brain on, Jon.

    Oh wait… Is it ever on in the first place?

    LOL xxx

    Go to the website “TechTales” and you will find more stories like that. My two favorites are “The Perisl Of Miss. P.” about a woman who claimed to be a computer programmer and yet thought the third prong in a plug-in was to keep the plug-in in the wall and not to ground the electrical equipment and the second is “Degress Don’t Mean $$$$” about a man talking about not being hired by this company because he did not have a computer degree even though he had extensive experience with computers, gets hired by a friend, and six months later goes to that company that did not hire him to fix the mess the guy they hired made of their computers some of which were put together with duct tape.

    Old-fashioned dumb, yes. Ignorance, no, it exacerbates that.
