The emotionless, highly logical Vulcan, Mr. Spock, on the original Star Trek television series had quotes that sometimes came off as more human than the other characters.

“Computers make excellent and efficient servants, but I have no wish to serve under them.”

While hundreds of millions of people were captivated and enslaved by PCs, tablets and smartphones, Mr. Spock — portrayed by actor, director, poet and photographer, Leonard Nimoy — passed away on Friday, February 27th, 2015.

Facebook: "Screw you, internet. You started a debate about a stupid dress that was so illogical that you killed Spock..."  Commenter: "This can't be liked."

Ebay: Item “As Pictured”

There are times I’m forced to resort to eBay when sourcing LCD screens for notebook computers. eBay can be a real mixed back, especially when you see something like this and the item description says, “As pictured.” I was very close to buying the item, but was afraid of receiving what was pictured rather than the screen I really needed…

B15EW09 v.2 LCD Screen, As pictured.  "I don't see a picture of a B15EW09 v2 LCD Screen at all, but rather a map of Tijuana, which leads to some confusion. Is this auction for a complete LCD screen, part of an LCD screen, or a map of Tijuana?"
