Temper is short and list is endless. Machines that want to do my thinking for me are undoubtedly my worst enemy. I will not get into the details.
1. Toyota – The seat belt indicator does not prompt but threaten you to wear it even when the car is halting.
2. Auto complete program in Apple assumes that it has guessed the word in your mind when you press a blank space
I am sure everybody has a list that they are forced to live with. It would take a genius to figure out how to set the time in my latest Sony car mp3 player. No doubt why I have not figured it out yet.
Some people asked me to refer a manual. My philosophy has been, not to refer to manual unless it is a sleek feature of the product. In other words, if it is a tape-recorder, I should not have to refer to a manual in order to play or pause. However, I would not mind if I have to figure out how to record from radio and karaoke simultaneously.
Short Sighted Phrases
I do want this for the record and will not go into it at any level of detail. I will just give examples and they will speak for themselves:
1. A good leader should be a good follower
2. Apple a day keeps doctor away
Misguiding with Statistics
I mainly focus here on the geniuses that publish newspaper articles and TV shows. These people know stats which are practically beyond impossible to even make a fair approximation. Statements like “one out of three Americans view US Government as a threat to their freedom” are third in my list that torment me.
This is the main reason I started writing blogs. Often I end up discussing the same topic with little or no variations in the actual discussion arguments or conclusions. It is like watching the same Mitun Chakraborthy movie everyday.
