Incompitence is the PC killer

by tyco49 / March 17, 2006 9:13 AM PST

As a techie and owner of a geek-squad style company, I find that the worst thing for a computer is an incompitent user. A person that clicks on ads, downloads from advertisements, has no anti-spyware or firewall, incompitent overclockers, etc. Most people just screw up thier own computers. Notice how the educated(in computers) people never have problems. 90% of my clients create thier own problems and its almost always preventable by getting some computer common sense.

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
