Slacker and Steve - Technology Screwed Me Over (Audio)

Technology, a love/hate relationship for most of us. The average human has wasted 29 hours a year following bad advice from their GPS. Whether you use Google Maps, Apple Maps, the navigation system in your car, or your 2003 Garmin...sometimes, they steer you wrong, literally. GPS is always giving directions so that you have to do an illegal turn around, sending you 15 minutes out of your way and of course leading you towards heavy traffic. A survey also found that 47% of us have gotten into a screaming match with our GPS even though, you know, it's not a person and it can't hear you, it still gets your blood boiling.

 

How has technology screwed you over?
