In the years of selling cars, one of the situations that stood out involved otherwise intelligent people who were woefully ignorant of both the product and process. Watching them try to conduct business in a confident and “professional” manner, while they really didn’t have a clue, was a private enjoyment. Much like me with computers.
I’m facing the need to replace or update two desktops, and I’m feeling that awful lack of knowledge. In addition, I am cheap, not frugal, Scrooge Mc Duck cheap, and wanting to go used or refurbished when you don't know squat, is not fun. Feels like the ghosts of car deals past are looking down and laughing their asses off.
Who is to blame? Who has spent years learning just enough to use a fraction of the computer's capability, and not bothering to master using a computer?
I'm not sure, but want to kick his ass.
