Until I can use wiki as a source in school and not have itthrown out, it's pretty much worthless ( unless you want picutes I guess.)
That will never happen. I remember wikipedia telling me 480i was better for high motion video then 480p .

Too true, to follow up with this I give a quote from George Carlin:

"The more we idiot proof the world, the better the idiots the world will make."

How many people can use a computer and never know whats inside one. And the first time something goes wrong, they re-install Windows/Vista and wonder why there is no sound or their video is not at the right resolution. Ask these people what chipset drivers are and get a blank look.
This is 2 tiered. Those that know what they are doing and those that don't.

No offense, but I have seen threads where people are so helpless, the first thing I think of is that they should take a computer class somewhere to get an understanding of there computer. To learn whats inside their computer and what each part does.

Well those same people that don't know what's inside their computers might be automotive experts or literature experts. My point is that we can't expect people to be experts at everything. So why not make things as usable for everyone as possible? I'm not saying dumb everything down to put everyone on the same level, but rather just make everything usable for people. There will always be more in-depth parts for the experts.

The other part is what level of expertise should everyone have of the internet? I mean to own a car you should have some minimal knowledge about maintenance like changing oil and such. So what would this guy suggest everyone be able to do with the internet?

Sounds like the plot to a crappy sci-fi movie.

Im going to need to see a demographic makeup of the people hes speaking of. He never takes into account that as a society we are being inextricably tied to the internet. As far as portable devices not giving the same experience as a desktop. When and who the hell ever said they were supposed to. Isn't that the whole point of mp3 players is not to have to drag a lappy with you everywhere for just music. His logic seems very narrow in my opining. For the one who knows alot of people who don't know how to get their music on their ipod instead of being the condescending geek why not take a few minutes and show them. My man forgot to mention that ignorance breeds ignorance. If you trust wiki without referencing what your reading there you deserve what you get. The links there are almost always to very reputable sites.

Someone paid this guy to make the statement. Maybe something happened to his kids, who knows.
