Kids (and Everyone Else) Can’t Use Computers

January 19, 2014

A common pet peeve of mine is that people just can’t use computers very well. They can get done whatever task it is they need to accomplish using the computer, as long as everything goes perfectly smoothly (which, as I’ve discussed before, manufacturers seem promise that it will). If any little thing goes wrong, they’re lost. Worse yet, they usually refer the problem to friends or relatives who are supposedly “good with computers.”

I won’t be going into any more detail here, because I’ve whined enough about this already, and anyway it would be redundant after Marc Scott’s excellent post on Coding 2 Learn entitled “Kids can’t use computers.”

Hat tip: Nikolay’s comment on the Server Fault question “People think a ‘hidden’ save file dialog box means the computer is frozen.”
