Re: Deleted

Or nice interfaces like:

computer: "Are you sure you want to delete all files?"

you: "NO!"

computer: "Deleted anyway."

What did they say?

But what does it all mean? I thought my command of the English language was sufficient, but I just do not understand what "The primary goal of USB is to deliver the best user experience combining data, display and power delivery over a user-friendly and robust cable and connector solution," actually means. Or "we’re opening the doors for innovation across a wide range of devices and increasing compatibility to deliver better experiences to consumers," Is there anyone that can distill any information from that sentence?

When I see statements like that, I think they used one of the many mission statement generators that you can find on the Internet. I can make press releases like that too:

It is USB4's mission to disseminate interdependent technology. It is committed to synergistically fashion infrastructures. It is engineered to meet the needs of an ever-changing marketplace. It is for integration in mission critical services to meet the increasing needs of the users.

(users? shouldn't that be utilizationers?)

Are you sure your disc drive has stopped rotating, or are you just ignoring the messages?

"Press any key to quit the program"

a

"Do you want to save your data?"

n

"Are you absolutely sure you want to destroy a complete day of work?"

y

key

"bash: key: command not found"
