49. Technical Failures Abound.
1. Thinking a GUI controls running processes.... FAIL.
2. Thinking that "displayed applications" is the sum of all binaries.... FAIL.
3. Thinking that computer devices don't log the shit out of everything in various debug modes.... FAIL.
4. Thinking that apps don't log and cache https URLs..... FAIL.

Seeing as how his desktop/laptop is running Ubuntu, he's going to blow a fuse when he finds /var/log, or looks at top.

That being said, at least all the breathless (if mis-informed) reporting is raising awareness about how computing works.
