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.

"This makes no difference to his argument, which is not that searches are slow, but that we shouldn't have to perform searches at all."

How many times have you put your keys down and later forgotten where you had put them? You had to look for them, didn't you?

The same thing happens with computer files. Only with the computer, you can tell the machine what you're looking for and to go find it for you. You can only do that IRL if you have children.
