What's the most stupid thing that you have heard people say in terms of technology/computers?

I know 3 people:

1 has said that his terabyte is bigger than my terabyte 

another has said that his 2 year old laptop is better than my desktop

the other one thinks that you can upgrade a 2014 Mac Pro to "nividia" graphics and add a 6TB HDD (and that Macs are better than PCs in every way)

SO what is/are the most stupid thing(s) that you have heard people say in terms of technology/computers?

"I have a supercomputer. 8GB RAM". I found out that it was incredibly expensive (at the time) and has what was a top-end core 2 quad and 8GB DDR2.

Along with a HDD raid...so many HDDs...

 

Not heard, but when my school's VM computer system was so overtaxed that the desktop backgrounds weren't loading in, people kept on resetting their CRT monitors.

 

Also, since we switched to much smaller thin client machines (WYSE I think), I've been constantly turning them on as the tiny things are VESA mounted to the back of the screens.

"my phone has a 3gb ram, and my gaming PC has so much I can store all my music and pictures"

 

A kid said this to me, along with "my parents grow pot, want some?" while trying to make fun of my Galaxy S4 (WHICH is a great phone I'll have you know)

"I have downloaded 128GB of Ram For my Pentim D so It Is faster than ALL of your pcs combined" - Kid on Gmod 2014

Some one also told me that they over clocked their Graphing calculator to make it The worlds fastest Pc, But they would smack it really hard aginst the table whenever no one was looking so It make the screen flash, When someone asked him y it was flashing he said the calulator was at 120hz and faster than the Human eye can see. It was really Funny because Most people thought he was legit

1. 30 fps is more cinematic

2. Resolution is just a number

3. a good gaming pc costs like $2000 and isn't that much better than console

4. you have to upgrade every time a new game comes out.

5. there aren't that many games for PC anyways.

 

So basically....the usual fanbpy peasant babble.

 

That's wrong, technically. And by no means would it explode,.

 

Depends on the size of the phone *ba dum tsss*

Ketchup is better than mustard.

GUI is better than Command Line Interface.

Technically?

GTX 980 is 165W and i7 (desktop) is 84-88W and even the mobile parts are like 10W. U would need a phone the thickness of 3 books inn order to power it

That's still false. They could, but it wouldn't be elegant or small, but if it connects to a cellular network and can make phone calls, it is still a phone.

I've heard a relative of mine complain that she has to pay for cable being laid to her house to get internet since 'internet mostly goes through sattelites'. Although what with all these satellite internet plans being floated lately, she might prove partially right in her lifetime.

Her mother was afraid to look up bio entries about her former professors on a university website late in the evening cause she felt she'd be disturbing them.

Guy I know who's something of a hippy rails against 'the corporations' and has reapeatedly expressed his dissatisfaction about big data gathering so much information about everyone, but he's still using Facebook for all communication with his friends and always logs into youtube with his firstname.lastname@gmail account to watch anything.
