“Amazon’s $23,698,655.93 book about flies”

This article was interesting to me because it showed how careless people can be when it comes to technology. People seem to forget that computers are machine who do as they are told. They do not have the ability to think rationally so of course a computer that is told to up a price a certain amount depending on other sales and what not would just continue to up the price. Any person who looked at the price would have seen the problem but a computer doesn’t work that way. This article reminds me why people dislike computers. If a computer takes a second too long to load what does the user do? They push the button again, pause, push it again and again. This only confuses the computer and then it tries to open the clicked thing over and over. This would be the equivalent of trying to finish a thought with someone saying, “Tell me now, tell me now, tell me now!” It would not help but hinder the situation. This article was entertaining and goes to show how people are usually at fault not the computers they blame.
