Pogue Asks The Tough Questions

David Pogue (of the New York Times) just blogged about a slew of technology questions that he doesn’t have answers to.  My favorites:

  • Why is Wi-Fi free at cheap hotels, but $14 a night at expensive ones?
  • What’s the real reason you have to turn off your laptop for takeoff?
  • Who are the morons who respond to junk-mail offers, thereby keeping spammers in business?
  • Laptops, cameras and cellphones have improved by a thousand percent in the last ten years. Why not their batteries?

You can check the rest out here.

    (It’s hard for me to think he’s really that smart when he asks the Mac Virus question. If I was doing ANYTHING and I thought I could reach 94% compared to 6%, I would go straight for the 94% and not even think about the 6%. That’s an easy one.)
