Gadget makers to continue with disruptive technology policy

angry user.jpgMicrosoft, Google and all those other annoying buggers have announced they intend to keep launching a raft of FATYHTGUT products (flipping annoying things you'll have to get used to) whether you're ready for them or not.

By targeting young simpletons with no powers of discrimination, who will drive the movement for technology adoption, they intend to foist further wholesale changes on society, in a bid to meet their quarterly profit projections.

"We don't like what we've done to the world, but we can't defy shareholder expectations," said a spokesPR for the technology industry, "sorry, but what can you do."

As a further insult, they intend to back the onslaught of technology with a tide of schmaltzy ad campaigns, support for hideously self-important, but unworldly, technology gurus and bamboozling product and service tariffs that plunge people into contractual agreements they never would have signed up for if they understood them.
