Did these motherfarkers just pronounce Lolcats as dead? That's firing the first shot, Wired.

The main reason I stopped reading Wired is because of arrogant bullshiat articles like this one.

HERE, HERE. I have all the first ten years boxed up. It was an AMAZING magazine. Then they, literally, sold out to whatever technology seemed "coolest" at the time.

Also; physical QWERTY keyboards are "dorky"? YOU'RE farkING WIRED! FUNCTION OVER FORM! REMEMBER THAT?!

Wired has occasional neat articles, but I've always seen them more as a magazine about technology as a lifestyle and not about technology itself.

This. I was coming here to comment how Wired used to be a great tech magazine. The intelligence seems gone. I could get similar analysis from the tech section of any major newspaper.

They've really turned into an incredibly douchetastic hipster tech mag, and it really makes me sad. I keep a subscription because I have nothing better to do with my remaining Delta miles, but if I see one more article about optimizing your life I'm going to throw up in my own mouth.

Oh Wired, you're about as hip and innovative as most of Lifehacker's 'latest hacks'.

I wish they would have been extra edgy and declared the .gif expired. Because it is.

1987 called and they want their broken shiat back.

At least it's not Maxim.

Do you have any idea how well your life is going if these things are of any consequence to you? "Oh noes, I got an iPhone dock for Christmas, I can't let my cool friends see me using that shiat!" It's almost satirical.

If GIFs came around in the 1930s, that's quite impressive considering computers didn't exist then.

Wow that garbage pile of an article made me want to avoid Apple just that much more.

EXPIRED Physical QWERTY

Why do manufacturers continue to make smartphones with physical keyboards? I refuse to believe real people actually buy them. I bet it's all just fleet purchases by midwestern firms that do IT for dentists offices or something. The phones are ugly and laughably huge, the sliding mechanisms are cumbersome, and the typing experience is almost always slower than a touchscreen. QWERTYs are so dorky, each phone should come with a free belt-clip holster and a pair of pleated khakis.


No. Also, DIAF and EABOD. You can pry my real keyboards with real, tactile input from my cold, dead hands. Touchscreens are crap and most dictation software is crap. Also, I totally want everyone around me hearing every word I'm trying to type, because everyone having worthless phone conversations in every possible place wasn't obnoxious enough already.

That's exactly the kind of self-absorbed, "LOOK AT ME I'M SO TRENDY" crap I've come to expect from "tech" writers these days, though.

TIRED Emoji

How am I supposed to figure out what you mean when you comment on my Instagram photo with: Clapping hands, sad cat, dancing girls, gun, atomic explosion, koala bear, koala bear, The Great Wave off Kanagawa, surfer, sunset, thumbs up? If you like my picture of my soy latte and my $7 donut, just farking say so.


Ah. Troll article. Well played, Wired.

Wow, that publication really, really, really hates bitcoin.

Of course, I'm sure that if I read Wired on a regular basis, didn't have adblock, and was an easily led consumer whore, I'd feel the same way.
 
2012-12-25 08:27:08 AM
QWERTY keyboards are expired? ...really?

And just how am I supposed to dictate programming logic you retards? Some of us use our devices for actual work instead of dicking around like a bunch of useless mac fanboys.

Technology for technology's sake gets on my nerves. The tools are great. But I'm more interested in how I can use them than wasting my god damn time.
