Looks like most of us here at Tech ARP are in a mood for some myth busting, after getting our chops busted by all manner of public misconceptions on technology. So we decided that enough is enough and I was given the task of putting my fat foot down and drawing the line. Some of these old wives tales have to be shot in the head, decapitated and then cremated and have their ashes scattered across all creation!
You, dear reader, are probably wondering, "Why?"
Well, as a tech enthusiast, I've put up with my share of inane questions, while asking inane questions of my own. In a way, we here are going help you save a lot of time by busting common myths about computer technology so that you won't have to waste time going "What the butt is this?" or wondering if what someone said was not just some technobabble that his grandmother with only working knowledge of a toaster taught him.
With all that time saved, you could find yourself free to take up old passions like torturing animals, blogging about your ex, downloading smut, etc. I wish I had this guide 7 years back. If I did, I would probably be a millionaire playboy by now. Okay, you might not benefit from it quite as much, but you'll certainly save yourself a whole lot of embarrassment and money by believing these myths.
So, what do you have to lose by reading this? Absolutely nothing. But what you could possibly gain is the power to make the right purchase, defend yourself against the ignorant, and save yourself from potential embarrassment. More importantly, chicks dig tech-savvy people (or so we believe!).
So, do yourself a favor, read through this, and liberate your mind from dumb beliefs that some 12-year old probably cooked up on a boring Saturday afternoon!
