Extreme Tech Misconceptions

How many people do you know who (I have come across all these, some quite often):

1. Believe google earth/street view could be used as a replacement for CCTV – e.g. to catch theives.

2. Are completely unable to understand the idea of a location in a file system, despite repeated attempts to explain it – e.g. – cannot find a saved file unless it is in the default directory of a given application.

3. Never empty their camera cards or back up their contents.

4. Do not have the slightest idea what is meant by memory sizes – e.g. would not know the difference between a 4GB SD card and a 64MB SD card.

5. Think day and night is caused by the sun going round the earth.

6. Think that clutches wear while the pedal is completely pressed down.
