Some more opinions on tech bugger-ups
    #2853587 - 07/03/04 10:48 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

1) The S-Video plugs. What the fuck? It may look pretty but every time I plug one end in I fear I will break one of the pins on it, I've bent them many a time and it's hard to see which exact pin it really was.

2) Polyphonic ringtones. Weren't they supposed to make cell phones LESS ANNOYING? DIDN'T WORK, DID IT? I nearly had to stab someone at a restaurant today.

3) Mag-Lev trains. Return On Investment in twenty years. Neat idea, but so was the Concorde.

4) Furby.

5) Commercial VCDs still suck ass.

Conditional: Pentium Pro, but some use in servers. Slot CPUs, a revolutionary idea that caught on for three years, but looked neat. Coffee cups that heated the coffee by shaking, chemical reaction. MS-DOS clones, they were better than the real thing but nobody knew about them, or they weren't compatible with Wing Commander.

Any more? Opinions?

You just got to look at the svideo plug then look at the jack. Line up the plastic guide pin. Its usually up or down.

Commercial vcds? Huh, only commercialy sold vcds ive seen is porn. VCDs work fine for tv shows if encoded/captured ok. Can fit 3on 1.

More like "invisible Plastic Guide Pin", make it orange or something, or make it like a triangular VGA plug.

Regarding VCDs I don't know, we don't have DVDs for rent around here, VCD is the best we get, three CDs for JFK and other long movies and the quality is .. well, think Inquisition and you just got caught chewing willow bark for the pains of your cancer.
