What do you think... Are computers male or female?



by Maria Lorena Barrazueta
I'll give you some hints on how to guess if our computer is more like a male or a female.

Five reasons to believe computers are female:
No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.
The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
The message "bad command or file name" is about as informative as, "If you don't know why I'm mad at you, then I'm certainly not going to tell you."
Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.
As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

Five reasons to believe computers are male:
They have a lot of data, but are still clueless.
They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem.
As soon as you commit to one you realize that, if you had waited a little longer, you could have obtained a better model.
In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
Big power surges knock them out for the rest of the day

So, do you think your computer is male or female?

hahahahahaha!!!. Very very good article. This shows us, males and females, in wich aspects we are failing; but in a very funny way. This article may hurt many people, but is just a point of veiw, not everyting in it is correct. We must acceot our mistakes and have fun of ourselves.
