Why do people who live on line or can't run business without doing it on computers, figure out the whole world is not!very mad doh
Just changed insurance. Agent said they will mail me policy and card, but I can make an online account to prove it now. So...fine...sigh I will attempt.
Get to site, register, enter info and user name. No go..no reason given what is wrong. Tried 4 times.very mad confused dunno Read that the policy number can be used that way..tried..bingo. Then it says I can't view it til after start date and past. @%$%^* Screen pops up, want to do it all on line. NO! No way to X out of it so just disconnected.
Today get email, oh you want electronic..go to site and enter this and that and you can view or print out policy. %^*%!!! NO!
Email has phone number to call..constantly busy!
Went to link to do review for company. Jumps to Goggle account, sign in. I dont HAVE one! Or can use FB...dont HAVE one!
Companies lose business from all the people who don't rely on a computer or internet.
The whole internet is getting to be a tangled web of mega corporations that rule the world. Chip pay, smartphone apps, accounts,,everything is linked so individuals have no say so or choice.
I heard that the Sturgis bike rally lead to a half million cases of covid nationwide. How do they know? Guessing, but doing it via smartphones. They checked the pings off towers, traced the pings home to the county they are registered at and then counted the jump in cases for that county.
They said it is anonymous. Sure it is..that is why they can trace it to area so exact.
Big brother is watching you...just like China and Russia. And lazy people love it. Don't have to call people, write or print anything, take a minute to pay for something..can sit on butt and get food delivered..there's an app for that.
Guess what world..no smartphone. No apps. No accounts to track me except a couple. No on line banking or bill paying. Hack THAT suckers! Burner cell, can't track me. Mail my checks..too bad banks are one line with MY data...no texts to bite me down the road...and if the web croaks..sigh..was handy , but get out pen, paper and my typewriter and manage nicely. Bye.

Most of my business comes through an app. Keep up with the times or be left in the dirt...

Enjoy Big Brother knowing all your business too. And when Armageddon hits, or hackers attack, or the system crashes, enjoy the chaos. Exchange your privacy and freedom for convenience. I will go on paying cash and avoiding the coming control.scold

Funny how electronic was supposed to reduce paperwork. We got a fax printer at the radio station I worked at. Boss said from now on, read it first and then print IF needed. So what happened. Front desk read...hmmm, maybe important..print for XX. Then sales person came in...read, print. Secretary read, print. So it ended up with more because no one wanted to delete when unsure.
Half of the stuff gets printed anyway due to fears of deletion.
People rely on cloud servers. I heard of one already that folded or shuttered and people lost all their stuff.
I grew up with poles for electricity and phones. In winter could count on power outage monthly and sometimes phones. Still have overhead electric. Phone lines are now underground and still go out when varmints get into them.
Covid should have wised up some, but didn't wise up all. He who puts all eggs in one basket, chances to lose all eggs. An example can be seen in Cali. What highways? What supply chains? What internet or electricity or even cell towers?
I will stay a Luddite. Maybe live my life without seeing the **** hit the fan. But, heavily armed, away from cities and a survivalist. Pity the fools who think nothing can ever happen to their happy little modern world. Old enough to read the writing on the wall...and history and 1984, plus sci fi movies that a lot came true.wave

The obvious weak point is that the satellites could all go in a blink from the sun. That would be the end of the internet, etc. That would relieve you, Orzzz, of having to put up with the idiot programmers who think their solutions are absolutely clear and need no explanation. However, the recent covid experience should tell you that your money will be worthless because the people who provide the goods you want to buy won't be able to get them to you. And so civilization will end yet again.

We should keep a manual economy for the remedials alongside the AI and liberals turning themselves into a telekinetic swan. Something to remember humanity by, something that can still be trusted.
