“Brilliant In Technology” – Err… Not Really

How does one react, when an individual claims to be BRILLIANT in technology (with reference to IT) but:

  • Asks what is OTP (with reference to online banking) and needs a tutorial on how to use it?
  • Is not aware of the Keyboard Shortcuts for Cut-Copy-Paste?
  • Clicks on any link on any website that offers Free System Scan and then wonders how she ended up with a ton of extensions and toolbars on her browsers?
  • Expresses shock when contacts deleted from her phone (not syncing with email) are actually deleted from the phone and not sent to a recycle bin?

I could go on with the ranting but it’s rather pointless. Just venting.

BlackBerry Mercury

They want to call it the KEYone (The device and the name does remind me of the Sony Ericsson P1). I don’t get the capitalisation and I honestly feel that ‘Mercury’ was a much better choice, but… anyways…

Expected - April 2017.

Priced at USD 549. Some people are of the opinion that the specs of the Mercury do not justify the pricing, as there are phones with higher specs available for cheaper. Go ahead and get those. This device isn’t intended for you.

This device is primarily aimed at people who REQUIRE a physical keyboard in the candy-bar form-factor and a battery that lasts. Given that there aren’t many options available, these guys could price the device even higher and it wouldn’t be a problem.

Looks good (to me), at least in the pictures and videos. Single-hand operation should be possible. Putting up with the Android nonsense/eccentricities seems to be inevitable (for now, at least).

Err..

If you thought Bush had a problem forming sentences (that made sense), well…

And what’s with the swaying?

 

Talk about someone with a misplaced sense of entitlement. That’s not even the worst part.

The disappointing bit is that there would be a significant number of daft cunts who would have paid this cunt.

Why did you survive?

There are simply WAY TOO MANY idiots crowding the planet.

Request To BBC – Can You Get Better Presenters?

If you can’t fire Alan Kasujja, could you at least see to it that he stops using the word STUFF while presenting the news? For fuck sake… this is supposed to be BBC!

It would be preferred if Matthew Bannister, Alan Kasujja and Bola were pulled away from the microphones, but if that’s not going to happen, could you at least brief them on how to present the news and/or conduct interviews? Is that too much to ask for?
