Quotes: Hopeless With Tech
"The internet is a great way to get onto the net."
Bob Dole

"I really love that Wolverine’s attempt to use the X-Phone is exactly what you’d expect from a dude who’s 100 years old. He just kind of stares and yells at it."
Chris Sims and Matt Wilson on X-2: X-Men United

"One U.S. Supreme Court justice referred to Netflix as 'Netflick.' Another seemed not to know that HBO is a cable channel. A third appeared to think most software coding could be tossed off in a mere weekend... Justice Breyer was somewhere in the middle. He was seen as being out of touch for making several references to 'phonograph records.'"
Business Insider, "When Hi-Tech Meets High Cort Hijinks Ensue"

"Despite his role as progenitor of a family of geeks, I am fairly certain my grandfather at no point had the slightest clue what a video game was. The geeky nature of his family must have been quite bizarre to him, a working class man who did spells in every job imaginable in the course of a slow wander towards the middle class. I know, in hindsight, that he held me in a position of uncanny fear and awe not entirely dissimilar to how I held him."
Phil Sandifer

"The strangest thing about these commercials is that each of them is targeted at completely different demographics. You've already seen Mindfire's ad for gamers too horny to make rational decisions and Collins College's ad for gamers too moronic to make rational decisions. Minneapolis Media Institute seems to be trying for an entirely different market — senior citizens who aren't quite sure what these young people and their calculator watches are blooping and bleeping about."
Seanbaby, "The 6 Stupidest Video Game School Commercials"
