PC industry ridiculed by academics and researchers

Author: JT Smith "Computers are illogical machines in dire need of a total overhaul, and
the information technology industry is completely screwed up.

That's the gist of what academics and engineers told IT workers
gathered here this week for the three-day Association for Computing
Machinery conference. The event is typically a sort of group hug
between computer programmers and scientists, but the mood turned a
tad nasty Tuesday as researchers lightheartedly ripped on computer
scientists, who made up the bulk of the 200-member audience."
