What Bothers You about Technology?

I am UTTERLY immersed in technology.  I love it.  I use technology for my job, my finances, and now even reading.  It’s amazingly useful to me.  I am, however, painfully aware that technology is FAR from perfect.  I experience the pains and frustrations of getting some device or program to behave just like anyone else does.

I spent several maddening hours the other day trying to get a firewall to do what I wanted.  Unsuccessfully, even!  I have been working on firewalls for longer than I want to admit, and I couldn’t make this stupid thing act right. 

This exercise got me to thinking about all the folks out there that are dependent on technology for their businesses and even their lives who have to struggle with this sort of thing on a daily basis.  What is your biggest pain point around technology?  If I could give you magic computer pixie dust and solve your greatest problem, what would it be?

I am very interested in hearing what you have to say.  Post in the comments or email me at dave.purdon [at] gmail dot com.
