A tool, carefully designed to make life frustrating and difficult for people who cannot properly use it.
Anyone who says computers are "meant to save time but waste time" obviously can't use them. Of course they save time. I saved two hours writing my essay by copying and pasting bits of other essays I found on the internet.

A piece of crap that always fuckin shuts down on you every fuckin time you are trying to work on it, put on some music, play games, etc. Often associated with the blue screen of death.

An infernal machine everyone loves and is completely obsessed with. They can go from a junk cell phone to a Super Cray computer at the National Security Agency. Computers can really suck because of the failures of their manufacturers to create real products.
There are three types of Personal Computers (PCs):

1. The Windows machine which tends to crash when it is the absolutely worst time to crash, but is a great machine for the PC gamer.

2. The Apple computer comes in many varieties but is invariably the best for multimedia and graphics. While there are not very many good programs available for the Macintosh, those that are created are good. (Usually). An Apple running MacOS X is likely to be safe from most viruses, but isn't easily interchangable with other PCs.

3. The Linux box is perhaps the most secure machine on Earth and very cheap. Support and documentation is often very good. However, it is not for the faint of heart, as it requires hard work to set up and skill. It's open source, so most stuff is free, but many of the programs are amateurish.
I hate this stupid computer!!! I need a Cray! Why did I get Windows anyway?

The reason I can't enjoy my weekends anymore. The almighty consumer of time. This machine will eat your soul and sell the last few bits on eBay.
What? Explorer froze on my computer's process manager? I'll just end and then start the process again. (desktop crashes)

\kem pyu'ter\ n : 1 one that computes; specif : an automatic electronic machine for performing calculations
2 a machine which computes, especially an electronic machine that solves complex mathematical problems in a very short time when given certain information. 3 one skilled in computing, or a thing that computes. 4 A machine that is used nowadays to store information, play games, do artwork, chat, listen to music, watch DVD's, surf the internet, burn CD's and DVD's, earn money, and most of all waste time.
For def. 1 : He is a computer, if you ask a question he will compute, and answer you the best he can ; The computer will calculate for you.

For def 2 : Computers the size the size of a matchbox that do the work of a packing case full of normal elextronic equipment. ; The computer will answer your math{ematical} problems, so long that you insert the data correctly.

For def 3 : {She} will compute your every move in a chess game and may possibly be able to compute your next move.

For def 4 : I love computers, they entertain me, but then again they freakin piss me off because of the damn errors it gives me from a game that the computer can't handle. Especially because it is no where near the speed of a human brain.
