Gizmos and gadgets are generally useful devices... its the electronic padlocks and microprocessor-controls that bother me the most, as they serve no useful purpose on machinery except to victimize the hapless/helpless consumer. Electronic controls are corporate tools for stealing money out of wallets via predictable/enforceable intervals. It won't be long 'till 30% of the net weight of an ATV consists of sensors and wiring harnesses.... oh wait, most of them are already overweight electro-turds aren't they....!!!! :-(
Electronic padlock devices are destroying one of my favorite hobbies. And they're contributing to killing off popular forums like this one. Its time we back up a bit... stop supporting this creeping problem. Thats my .02.
well I can agree with you to a point
but Gizmos and gadget IMO are making a lot of folks DUMB and unable to do simple things without them, and becoming super dependent on them to get by, which I DO"T think is a good thing at all
the amount of people I deal with anymore that have NO common sense is amazing, and I feel a lot of is it due to, they never LEARN things, they count on being able to look things up when needed and forget it as soon as there done
smart phones has already IMO made people dumber
MORE High tech yes, but they sure made a lot of folks loose simple skills and abilities
its a lot like older folks have NO clue what modern people do on electronics these days(I know I am far behind in the times) but us older folks also see new folks so unable to do simple things, NO HIGH tech is needed for
I cannot tell you how many kids I see working cash registers that cannot give you change when you give them PAPER money, there so dependent on a computer taking a credit card they don't need to know how to count money I guess??
and this is SAD to me?
Most vehicles will NOT start when the battery in your key fob dies< and this is sad too to me< a cheap battery can prevent your multi ten's of thousand's dollar vehicle from moving LOL
tech,? everyone wants it till it fails then there all left dumbfounded !
