    What are some Electronic/Internet/Computer related stuff that annoy the hell out of you?

    . People who use overstretched JPG's as their computer wallpaper
    . People who use pictures of themselves/friends as their computer wallpaper
    . People who can't Organize their MP3's, so they have the same artist 12 times in a row on their players
    . People who buy Entry-Level Dell/Gateway PC's. At least spend 200-300 more bucks, and get a presentable PC with solid memory/video cards.
    . People who call Plasma/LCD's "Flat Screens".
    . People who buy the iPod Nano. There are other iPods and MP3 players close to, if not the same price, with more space.
    . People who buy Macs because it has the iChat app. (Girls in my school do this)
    . People who buy Macs/MacBooks because of their appearance.
    . Zune fanboys. Shut up. The only thing the Zune has that the iPod doesn't is "Song Sharing", and FM Radio.
    . Mac Fanboys. You guys have good Media Editing tools, and that's about it. Also, there aren't any viruses for Macs, because nobody gives a **** about them to create the virus.
    . People (Mainly Girls) that say "The only thing I know how to do is go on AIM, and check Facebook/MySpace".
    . People (Mainly Girls) that buy 1,500+ PC's and use it for the reasons stated before.
    . People that say "It doesn't have Internet" when the connection's bad.
    . E-Mail. Besides activating Forum Accounts, and Confirming Online Purchases, who the **** still uses it to talk except for 40 year olds who post crappy jokes from the 90's? (Complete with crappy photoshopped "FUNNY PICZ" from the 90's.)
    . Internet Explorer. Yuck.
    . LOLcats and ICanHazCheezburger. The joke gets old, plus they steal from.....other places.
    . AMV's. Who the hell wants to see horrendous videos of Sonic X to the tune of "In The End"?
    . iPhone Imitations. The LG Voyager is a crap phone, IMO. The GUI looks like it's from 1996.

    -IE and everything about it

    -People who think graphic design and photoshopping is easy

    -People who think you can get anything on ebay, like for the last time, no you cannot buy money on ebay for less than it's actually worth or iPods for 10 bucks, ebay is a buisness, buisnesses don't work like that.

    -People who think the only people on the internet are stalker and creepers, personally I'd feel way safer just leaving all my personal info on this forum than giving it to some people I know in person!

    I find PhotoShop CS3 incredibly easy to use and navigate. As long as you have basic knowledge of the major tools used, as well as Transparencies and Render Effects, you're good to go.
