How sad that things like this get printed as journalism!!

The comments make good reading! Perhaps he's got bad directions from a SatNav because of the age of device he's using on the article picture!!

Nope. The real answer is:

In a given sample of people there is always going to be at least 1 idiot

There is always going to be someone who puts their cat in the microwave to warm it up and there will always be someone who crashes their car and blames it on the GPS.

You make computers easier to use and you're going to get stupid people who have no business using a computer trying to use them and failing.

Furthermore, if you invent a device that's pretty much idiot proof and evolution will come up with a better idiot.
