Experiences with non-techies

Recommended Posts

Circa one year ago my sister started to go to university and for that great achievement (literally just going there) she begged for an MacBook (the small one) from my dad. He's all supportive and ofc gives her the 1400€ device that houses the EXTREMELY POWERFUL Intel M3 processor. 

  Hide contents

At that time I already told everyone it was shit but why listen to the guy who sits on a computer forum the whole day and has tons of hardware laying around. 

 

Whatever, now today she posted a video of her working on her HUSBAND'S LENOVO THINKPAD for a university video project. 

I'm like: yo, don't you have a Mac for that? 

Her: ugh duh, I'm only making backups here. 

 

Yeah ofc OR MAYBE THE MAC JUST SUCKS BALLS?! 

 

 

But to everyone's defence: the Mac is rose-gold. 

 

I'm sad that Apple butchered the Macbook. The old aluminum Macbooks are some of my favorite laptops ever made.

On this episode of "Stupid Quotes from Non-Techies" we delve deeper into the word of techtards.

 

*points at GPU* "That's the powar sooply younit!"

 

"That's an ethernet cable!" *points at power cord*

 

"24 fps is the highest that a human can see!"

 

"My monitor using VGA is better than your 60Hz monitor using DVI!"


My rig is so crappy it's irrelevant to put here. Though my AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ from like 2006 has a higher clock speed(2.6GHz) and the same core count than my Intel Celeron-2955U 1.4GHz right now.

Remember that spoiled bitch who once stood on a HDMI Cable and broke the connector ? 

 

Yeah, I got two new storys from her: 

 

She was asking me if that is an iPhone "points at my phone", I reply with no it's a OnePlus 5t and she's like: Oh an "Android", it sure is the cheapest on the market !!! 

 

And on Thursday she came with that she "accidentally" changed the colour of the text in her word document. I go over, press CTRL+Z and she gives me this look as if I'm some sort of wizard. As if reversing things would be some sort of magic, lmao.

 

Also some Experience with non techies qoutes that I've heard over the last little while:

 

"Headphone jacks are obsolete"

 

"I never eject my USB" That's actually how he lost a couple of very important documents, I'm not even kidding.

 

"Why do I have no reception of Wi-fi nor celuar data in a concrete bunker ?"

 

One random dude had to do a presentation, he looked at his Macbook Air from 2013 for 3 Minutes straight only to realize it didn't have a HDMI port, and he's like: "HDMI is bullshit"

Last year somebody said that iPhones have expandable storage, and that you could upgrade it in Settings. I said that the upgrade was for iCloud, and they said that I didn't know that because I had never owned an iPhone, even though I had seen the settings before.

They said that Apple remotely adds storage when you request it via the aforementioned settings page.

No, they weren't being sarcastic, either.

I have more featuring me. Just a reminder that I also used to be sped.

 

Yesterday, I experimented with cooling the VRMs via the back of the motherboard by using thermally conductive tape and small heatsinks. Parts of those heatsinks were not anodized, which meant that they were electrically conductive.

 

Guess who didn't even turn off their PC and started sticking heatsinks on?

One VRM sparked, the PC reset (no long-term hardware damage), and I corrupted a few documents.

I ripped out USB 3 header pins before.
