Remember the days of playing “Duck Hunt” on Nintendo? Often bittersweet, what with the actual playing time interrupted regularly when you had to take out the cartridge, blow into it, and then slam it back into place. Or the occasional rage fit because the damn Nintendo Zapper gun would miss even when the barrel was pressed right up against the television screen.
We’ve all been frustrated with technology. Maybe your computer is acting slow or it’s on the fritz, so you take it to a shop, or just say screw it and buy a replacement before throwing it up on Craigslist with the misleading tag: “Good as new.”
