Does listening to people talk about the tech industry make you cringe sometimes?
It amazes me the amount of conviction people can speak about the inner workings/intentions of an industry they know relatively nothing about. Even tech writers ultimately know very little about what is really going on under the covers in what seems like a very secretive and massively complex industry.
Every forum post is full of arm-chair analysts telling each other what Google is going to do next or why Apple made a particular decision. I mean, it's fun to speculate an' all, but the sheer conviction people speak is downright cringe-worthy at times. I picture the real insiders of these large firms looking on and just shaking their heads in disbelief at some of the ridiculously uniformed comments being thrown around.
