Computers are still complicated…

A couple of days ago I was sorting a printer out for my mom. It was a 5 minute job, but it was preceded by over 2 hours of getting the laptop up to date…

She only turns it on to do a specific task, like send an email, then it is switched straight off, so it is never on for very long. As a result it had not done a Windows Update or AVG update or a Virus scan for ages. I dread to think of the state of the PCs out there where the owners don’t have a friend or member of the family providing PC support.

This sort of experience makes me think that maybe something like the iPad is a good idea for most regular folk. Keep everything on the net and use the simplest client possible, so you can’t screw yourself up.

Cheers

Tim…
