    Friend of my parents walks in and see's me editing a video in premiere on one screen and half watching south park on the other. He says "woah how did you get the t.v hooked up to there. I tell him its on itunes and then he says "but its not a mac and I thought macs were the only things you could do that with"

    disturbing yes
     
    but once you have your mom die on you and then watch the dr. desperately shock her back to life and then have her on dialyses for a few months and now not remember a damn thing about who you are or what she had for breakfast. Nothing seems to phase me

    So there is this nurse who does physical therapy with my grandfather and one day he calls me in there while she is here. And she has a macbook air sitting on the table. She says and I quote "Hey could you help me, a few years ago I paid the apple store to put windows on my laptop along with safari, (she thought safari was the entire operating system of os x) she said now that I took it in for a tune up and a new hard drive the windows went "poof" and now all I have is safari. Does that happen a lot with windows? cause that is the main reason why I don't use pc's and the only reason I had windows put on here is for work. Otherwise I would just use the safari, she then goes on to say "you should get a mac cause you never know when your pc is just going to go poof and then everything is gone.
     
     
     
    I was speechless and said, oh yeah that happens a lot. Went back into my room and laughed so hard I almost peed a little. This my friends is the "average" mac user.

    As I was at the mall today, I witnessed a non-tech savy young lady from the uk and her boyfriend on a laptop using the free wifi. As I sat down to eat the girl gets up and trips over the power cord and the screen bashes on the floor. they quickly pick it up and try to turn it on, and when the screen turns on with a huge crack in the middle I hear the guy exclaim in the most British accent ever heard "oh bloody hell its got a screen virus!!" so at this point I laugh so hard I nearly choke on my subway and they are giving me a look like "wtf are you laughing about"
     
     
    I said the 1st thing that came to my mind. "My sister got that virus"

    Used this as my sole computer from 2004-2011 with 0 upgrades done to the inside, by the time I opened it up in 2012 after it sitting idle for a year it was the 1st time the seal was broken and the fans wouldn't even spin from the amount of dust

    Lil Chillbil got a reaction from MSWindowsinside in Windows 98... how to explain to a customer why it's not good anymore   
    I frankly experience this a lot with my work. some guy brings in a pentium 4 running xp and the thing wasn't displaying right. I told them that their gpu failed and the guy is like 49 and has 2 kids with him around the age of 14 and 16, so the 16 year old having checked his email once and "knows how to plug in a computer" is now a computer "expert". And said so if we were to get a really awesome gpu it would run battlefield 3 right? I thinking quickly told them I would have to see what kind of port they have on the system and said to watch this video about the subject of bottlenecking on the monitor while I was doing that (I pulled up the linustechtips ncix video) so it turns out that it actually did have a pci express 16x slot... one of the kids had apparently while I was gone walked over to the gpu section of the superstore and was holding in his hand a gtx 690 and asked if it would work. Well... Technically yes but... "But what" said that guy who was with them who now seemed to be getting all defensive because he was not in his "element" working on cars at his autoparts store. 1st of all you only have a 250 watt psu and that would need to be upgraded. "ok". And you only have 512mb of ram... "so we'll buy a brand new power supply and as much ram as I can afford" But its getting old I said. "old, this computers only 7 years old" and thats when I snapped and started pointing all around the store "Look around you... the world has passed this pc by... no one is running xp anymore we have 8 core processors and 32 gigs of ram... not 40 gig ide hdds..." Listen i'm not gonna let you walk out of here screwed over with a gtx 690 in a pentium 4 system... because no one would be happy, For the same price I could build you a nice balanced i3 rig with tons of room to grow over 7 years. 
     
     
    At the end of the day everyone was happy, but this is one of the more rare occasions where people are not stubborn and are willing to learn

    Went over to my uncles house and he wanted me to delete my cousins facebook and her account on the computer. Issue was that this pc was a 1ghz celeron with 512mb of ram running windows xp. Took me forever to get that $50 and I don't think my cousin will talk to me again  :rolleyes:

    Lets Segway this thread into another spring of life
     
     
    Ok so recently I asked my mentor for years in the world of film and tech about what specs his rig has that he edits 1080p on from his T4i and gets very good results in his films
     
    Core i7 3930K at 4.2Ghz Corsair liquid cooler
    32 Gb 2300mhz DDR3
    1200 watt psu
    160gb intel ssd
    10tb raid 7200rpm drives
     
     
     
    Gt 210 2gb...
     
    Let that sink in for a moment...
     
     
    Now when I heard that he was running a 210 in his rig he explained to me that its all the power he needs to drive his single 24 inch 1080p display and edit the movies
     
     
     
    not really a experience with non-techies more like a bottleneck fail...

    So I was shooting a portrait gig and this lady says "is it a digital camera or a Film camera cause I wanna look good" 
     
    wtf does that even mean...
     
    Whether or not i'm shooting with my t3i or my film 1v is my business
     

     
    They were happy with their photo's but it kinda made no sense and I still don't understand what she meant by "cause I wanna look good"
