These are some questions I have after spending 3 hours trying to get my computer to speed up. My poor Apple genius is going to have to answer these questions when I go in Monday.
1. Why do computers only have a life of several years? We kept our TV’s and stereos for eons. If you’re under 30, you’re probably asking “What’s a stereo?”
2. Why do they tell you to upload software, and then tell you, “Oh, you don’t have enough gigabytes? So, why didn’t you tell me that before I bought new programs for $50.00 and downloaded them.
3. What is a gigabyte exactly. Where is it, and what does it look like?
4. Why don’t these computers come as a self-cleaning devices, like say an oven?
5. Are there little people inside the computer, fixing it up when you clean it? Okay, I know there aren’t any, but I feel like there are.
6. Who reads the messages I send to apple?
7. What’s the best way to co-ordinate all this stuff on the computer. I have bookmarks, but I’m not sure how to get to them. Or RSS?
8. Why do the apple genius’ look at me like I’m 105? Well, actually, I understand that one.
9. Why is wireless complicated? I can’t seem to connect my computer to my printer. Oh yeah, those go out of date too. They’re old after 2 years.
10. What is an air printer? Is it transmitting messages mysteriously in the air?
