And yet, the science fiction authors have made predictions countering this.

If I were gay, I'd so be doing this!

Monthly system updates from ASUS on my ZenFone2.

Keeping things updated and running doesn't attract a whole lot of media attention, but it's a big flaming hairy deal when there's no attention paid at all...

Battery life on a C201 Chromebook. Nice!

To the people who make smartphones;

Hi. You’re going to hate me.
You’re going to hate me because I have an Android phone that I bought, unlocked, off Newegg for $300.
It’s a beast! Intel Quad Core (2.3GHz), 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage, with a microSD, dual SIM, and quick-charging. Geekbench scores; 750 single, 2365 multi-core.
I’m an off-contract customer with T-Mobile. $30 per month gets me 100 minutes of talk time (augmented with wifi calling over Hangouts) which never gets used past a few robo-calls, unlimited SMS, and 5GB of 4G-LTE data.
I know I can pay more for a phone, but you’re going to have to sell me on why I should.
[Since I got mine six months ago, four others have followed my example and advice. Ha.]

Yup. That's my life, too...

Had a good day.

So, I think I had a good day.

I work at Office Depot. We fix broken Windows machines.

A young lady came in with her spyware-infected HP laptop. Couldn't connect to the internet, couldn't run the simplest task without getting slammed by malware pop-ups.

Reset Winsock, Internet Settings in IE, rebooted in Safe Mode with Networking.

Still, no internet…

“That's okay. You sold me a Chromebook last year. It works just fine. I use that for all my serious work. I just wanted this to play games.”

So, aside from me, that's one.

Totally made my day.
