Stupid Technology

From the wilds of South Dakota, it seems like I have too much time to think. Once again, in time for the holiday season, the Ad campaigns (which is where so many of these things ((heck, where ALL of these things)) come from) spread the same acronyms like the “I Love You” virus.

Late last night (yes, I know, we geeks have no life) I was grinding my teeth over the Google Technology Ads, and starting once again making up MY OWN definitions, to wit:

GREEN – Gag Reflex Entirely Engaged Now

CLOUD – Calling Legacy Operations Utterly Dazzling

PCI – Pay Cash Instead

SaaS – Simply Awful Acronym Sizing

IPS – Inventing (a) Product Synonym

RSS – Really Stupid Software

Facebook and Twitter? Stay tuned, I’ll come up with something.

Wouldn’t it be great if we decided not to buy anything that has an acronym attached to it?
