Personal computers really hit the mainstream like what, 30 years ago? It both amazes and depresses me that most people I deal with have NO idea how to do basic tasks, like file management or finding the "check for updates" menu item in an app.

Broken Smartphones: Laptops in Disguise

Modern smartphones are a dizzying treatise on planned obsolescence. Whether it’s batteries that can’t be removed without four hours and an array of tiny specialized tools, screens that shatter with the lightest sh…
