Humor Last month we discussed how computers are portrayed in cultural icons like Lost in Space, Star Trek, The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, and -- of course! -- that lost gem, The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes. This article continues this essential exploration of American culture with more probing profiles of computers on TV and in the movies.

In real life I was got hit by a teacher because I clicked on an icon while the cursor was still an hour glass. It was very bad because the computer was still thinking and it could damage from stress if I ordered it around to much.


That's real life right there. As I am a support person I would hazard a guess that 90% of people that call me for support "actually" believe that their computers need to warm up and have time to think.
