Great observation by Pogue, I still have friends who are planing to buy new computer for a past two years. They just keep waiting for the next big thing.
A few weeks ago, I was attending an educational conference. I was at a lunch table chatting with the attendees. I overheard a guy telling this story to his colleagues:“So there I was, struggling to make PowerPoint display correctly on this projector. I restarted it. I went through the menus. Nothing was working. So this eighth grader comes up and says, ‘Mr. Summers, let me help you.’ He kneels down, fiddles around, and damned if he didn’t fix the thing! An eighth grader!”
