    Computers. Pros. Cons.

    As we all know computers were orginaly invanted to make our lives easer, but instead it has seemd to make them harder. No longer can we get away from it all as we can get it all with the touch of are fingers.

    Any more thoughts on this.

    They have made our lived easier in some ways; eg. businesses can operate better with computers to organise their stuff, but they can also make them harder; eg. many jobs that didn't used to require computer skills now require them, so employees must get training, etc...

    computers weren't meant for the general public at first. they were things like encryption crackers and long-equation solvers (or simple calculators). stuff scientists would use.

    > 2. Doesnt play DVDs without a DVD drive

    My car doesn't drive w/o wheels... So? How else should a DVD be played? A floppy drive?

    > 4. Pr0n.

    Oh, c'mon - how is this a con?

    > 5. Most floppy disks can only hold 1.44 MB.

    >>Computer Pros:
    >>1. Does Homework
    You mean it does it on it's own, you just tell it what to do and it does it? Wow, kewl!

    >>Computer Cons:
    >>1. MICROSOFT
    Microsoft ain't all bad, they give software for free right? I don't want to start a browser war, but I think IE6 is a great tool to get for nothing (along with a few other things )

    >>2. Doesnt play DVDs without a DVD drive
    As per cheez's answer.

    >>3. No built-in popcorn maker.
    And no built in beer dispencer either, goddammit.

    >>4. Pr0n.
    Yeah, that porn thing.... it's real bad. I hate it. I hate seeing women naked. I think it's a disgrace.

    >>5. Most floppy disks can only hold 1.44 MB.
    And most CDR's can only hold 700mb. That's way too small considering my HD is 40gb.


    cheez - your titles make me laugh! Keep 'em coming. BTW, ya mom says to say hi
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    pr0n is cool, but some of the crap on the internet is disgusting.

    And the only thing I don't like about Microsoft, is the like to make things exclusive to Microsoft.

    Right, so i guess Ford should make their FOCUS (UK) available to all the manufactures? huh?

    Yes, I am a fan of M/S products and wont take no crap like that being written.


    The thread..ahh yes computers are nice-they number crunch stuff we used to take weeks to do in SECONDS!

    They hold,store,process and output accurate information whenever we need it....list is endless
    Such is life.
