    device (noun)
    A thing made or adapted for a particular purpose, especially a piece of mechanical or electronic equipment:

    By the dictionary definition keys are a device, as is a lock. However I wouldn't call items of apparel or human body parts, devices.

    I never listen to marketers much myself, but I do teach English for a living. BTW what's a "gig", a type of boat or something?

    Well I wouldn't call a tablet a PC, and of course Windows itself might not know the form factor of the device it's actually running on. I do have a Windows 10 tablet, but I don't have a PC.

    Heh. I'd guess then that you'd have total conniptions over my daughter's reference to anything electronic as "technology".

    Well at least she doesn't call it "IT".

    So, whilst watching some sordid hysterical romance of a television show with Dngrswife, I saw once again the tired trope of cutting one's palm to serve personal blood to whatever the cause is of the day.

    FFS, does not anyone in Hollyweird see how stupid that is? If you are going to cut yourself, would it make much more sense to nick the back of your hand, which would heal quickly and not impair the use of said hand?

    But no, this is Hollyweird, after all... the wound will miraculously heal before the next scene and no one will be in the least bit inconvenienced.

    I'm tired of mindless hate. Like hating a casting despite you not seeing the person actually perform the role.

    or hate on a movie before it even releases.

    Finally, hating someone for their opinion just because they disagree. That's annoying.

    To be fair, most new movies suck anyway. I honestly can't remember the last time I actually wanted to see a movie.

    Totally agree. I've long thought that Hollywood has run out of ideas.
    Kind of like songs - the best ones are old classics.
    I get more pleasure from reading a good novel these days, of which there are many.

    That co-worker. You know the one. That one that talks constantly, follows you into a room and even though they're engaged in an activity in that room, Just keeps on yakking at you while you walk out the door and down the hall. STILL talking as though you're in the room when you're 50ft down the hall.

    I do it the other way. Family members keep talking to you for a bit before they even notice you're gone. Wrapped up in the importance of their own thoughts and speech I suppose.

    Not sure if a rant or just funny....

    When your co-worker is so loud on the phone that he wakes up Bixby on your S8+. :D:D:D:eek:
