It would just force me not to register for even more websites. I'm getting sick and tired of having to register everywhere to even use a website. What makes people think I'm going to be encouraged to register to a site I want to use for a day and have it email spam me to change my password all the time? I'm already at the point of just using the same password for every non-important website I go to because I really don't care if someone cracks it and uses it to post obscenities on some website I don't really care about.

Not just software, machines as well. Gone are the days where we needed 50,000 people working in a manufacturing plant. Machines have replaced the vast majority of those jobs or it's been outsourced to Asia for the low skilled labor job such as the textile industry, which is changing soon as well with robotics.

Unfortunately, non-business owners will never understand. They think if we're not sitting in our office, that we're on vacation or sitting at home having a blast watching movies and playing games. Then when I come back from my business trip, I have to listen to these people complain about their long 8 hour work day. I work non-stop everyday trying to keep the business running, finding clients, answering late night phone calls and you've pretty much summed up all my employees. When one of my employees makes a mistake, it's me who has to fix it, mistakes that could be costly to the company. They all think I'm getting massive profits for myself and sailing on a yacht on the high seas with porn stars.

Why? A lot of software then was just enough and is still enough to run today for everyone. Why do I need the cloud to share data with? Why do I need all these gimmicks that I don't even use? I still see a lot of businesses running Windows XP or even DOS for their database. A lot of machine manufacturers still run everything on Windows XP because it's an expensive transition to move to Windows 7 or Windows 8, rewriting their manuals, redoing all their code for their machines, and most of them can't because companies like Siemens refuse to let you use most of their software on anything but Windows XP.

So it's not as easy as you think to transition away from Windows XP knowing that it's going to cost a fortune to try to get your old software to work on Windows 7 or Windows 8 and Microsoft offers no real solution for it.

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
