“Computers can bully us. A slow and unreliable system will bring even the toughest soul to their knees as they find themselves completely defenseless against the erratic whims of their rogue machine.” — Lou Ferrigno
I am going to go out on the proverbial limb here and say that no matter what communication tool you are currently using you must have noticed that your once “user-friendly” machine has turned into a capricious mini monster.
This once friendly sidekick and best friend seems to have a developed a mind of its own and morphed into an entity which continuously edits, retypes and somehow re interprets your words and thoughts into something that is unintelligible to the person to whom you are communicating.
You find yourself startled at the way your typing proficiency has decreased and the number of typo errors has geometrically increased to the point where you understandably start cursing the machine and use the other communication devices at your command. ( iPhone–> notepad–> computer.)
I was recently texting with a number of folks who told me they could not believe the message they texted to me was totally different from the words they had just typed. Thoughts of the Russians monitoring and controlling our devices immediately sprang to mind.
Does anyone out there know if there is a text editing application that these devices automatically trigger that allows the software to proofread and retype any words or phrases that do not seem logical to the application?
I have griped about Windows 10 a number of months ago. I have noticed that whenever Windows updates itself some of my programs are frozen in time and have to update themselves even though I update them daily.
One such program is the Kaspersky Security Suite for WIndows 10. I update this program every day and run the system scan once a month. However whenever there is a critical Windows 10 update the security program informs me that I have not updated or scanned the system at all.
I installed Windows 10 in August and the Kaspersky program in October. Every time the Windows 10 program updates itself the security program informs me that I did not run a scan yet. This is now month five and I have to literally go back and cover five months of updating and scanning activity.
I recently learned that the Kaspersky system is allegedly linked to Russian developers and was wondering if the Windows 10 platform is trying to protect my computer system from an illegal search and entry operation.
If you have experienced this type of unusual activity in your own electronic device please let me know.
I won’t be able to help you directly but will breathe a lot easier knowing that I am not the only one out here having this technically bizarre problem. — gc
