6 Reasons The Guy Who's Fixing Your Computer Hates You

http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-reaso...uter-hates-you/

this one kind of fits I don't know how many times I have wanted to strangle the fuck outta a user. I got out of the computer biz in around 2000 - 2001. I got a good laugh from that article just thought I would pass it on.

Hahaha

Are you still deluded that Mac's cannot be or are not hacked?

Guess again.

But see I open EVERYTHING and it does not slow me down. I do so much on my little mini and I have yet to do a clean install. Those spywares and Adwares and viruses don't hurt my mini. And that is why I am superior.

But Linux only fixes PC's. If all computers were Macs,Linux would die.

I get my neighbours banging on my door a few times a month, they ALWAY get really angry when I say I busy at the moment... always, even when it's a massive problem that'll take hours to fix. Like I want to go and sit round their house for hours because they say so. :/

It's funny because I get people too that wants me to fix their PC's. I just do a clean install and tell them in order to have a fast computer again I have to clean everything and start from scratch. Then like a week later it's slow again.
I tell them to not click on everything because you get viruses.
Then they say "But how come YOU can click on everything and your computer does not slow down?" I tell them it's because I have a Mac.
Yea.

I only wish I had not been forced to use a Mac for 6 months in 1994. Reason tells me they should have improved since then, but I dare not take that gamble.

They have improved since then. And I try not to brag. I just report on the facts.

Why is it that people who buy PCs refuse to believe that maybe something else is better? DRZ, that's a very American trait you're showing.

I have PC's. My wife has had one for a while now. Dual quad 4 gigs of memory 750 gb storage and fast as shit. It's considered a gamer laptop but she only logs on to FB on occasion and would do a google search every now and then or make an Amazon purchase. That's it. No games or downloads or anything remotely close. And I had completely wiped off all her anti virus software because those annoying pop up ads were a joke. And only one toolbar and I taught her how to remove it.
My Mac on the other hand needs a Plugable USB 2.0 10 Port Hub because I have everything connected to it from a 1 TB hard drive to my external DVD burner and a whole shitload of apps. I'm sure I can do all this to a PC and the sites I visit are generally safe but I've been there talking to some guy Jazebelle probably dated for hours trying to get my PC to work again. And it's improved but I never needed to make such a call since I've loaded all my crap up to a Mac. So it's just my preference that I've stuck to since the early 90's.

The first Apple I ever used I had to learn to program on back in school. It was an Apple II. I recall hating it compared to using my friend's Commodore 64.

In late '98 I used a friend's iMac G3. I loathed that shit box with it's built in boat anchor handle on top and one button "biscuit" mouse. As I recall he ended up beating it to pieces with a bat less than a year after buying it. It was a steaming turd straight out of the box.

The last one I used (one time somewhere around '03 or so) was a iMac G4. It was without a doubt one of the ugliest computers ever made. It looked just like someone had mated a table lamp with a TV. Just yuck.

Since then I have seen others but listening to the owners crow about them made me resolute in my decision to never touch one again.

You display an unusual ignorance of the general human condition.

Exactly. I was also spoiled by the C64. But old people had this idea that the C64 was for nerdy gamers, while the mac was like a new professional work tool. And with only one button so as not to tax the brain of IT illiterates.
My later confrontations with macs tells me they are still marketed to this segment.

There should be a thread warning customers about harassing computer people. My brothers wife took her computer to a repair shop and after 3 weeks of waiting she got the *brilliant idea* to go down there and curse the techs out and take her computer back.

The very next day all her online accounts were hacked. 5 email accounts gone. FaceBook closed. 30 purchases were made on her eBay account and paid for from her paypal account and the items all shipped to salvation army or goodwill. They even shut her cell phone service off. 3 weeks later immigration services showed up because an illegal girl from Mexico or whatever was using her name to work illegally and even had a SS card in her name. That was about 5 years ago and she says she's still fighting to get her credit fixed.

Maybe coincidence, but she says the owner laughed at her when she left the store and said "you have no idea what I can do"

All of the repair men should of filled the hard drive with weird Japanese porn, and bukkaked the screen before boxing it up and giving it back to her.
