Editorial The IT sector today is a complete mess. The end-users rarely understand this, but most insiders reach a point when they realize that things should be different. The problems are numerous but they all reduce to a basic principle. IT and consumer electronics companies are interested more about money than helping people solve their problems. Of course companies need to make a profit and nobody denies that. They should however make money by helping people and not by creating more problems for them.

cars have been around longer

Even though car maintenance is complex, a lot more people are comfortable with at least adding oil and checking tire pressure than they are with, say, burning a CD or downloading music. This is because cars have been around for over 100 years. Just wait until the 100th anniversary of the PC. (Of course, by then we'll have high-res retinal displays, 'memory card' readers built into our skulls, and a permanent wireless Internet-4 connection wired to our brains. (Or at least, I hope we will! (: ))
