Whatever happened to quality?
There is a well-known adage amongst programmers that there is no such thing as a bug-free program, but that doesn't mean testing is pointless. Good programmers spend at least as much time on rigorous and systematic testing as they do on design and coding. Poor programmers want to ignore the tedious testing and instead add more features.

Beware the USB-based computer killer
If you found a USB stick in the street, hopefully you would be wise enough not to plug it into your PC to see what it contained, lest it contains a virus and you have the autorun option turned on. Now there is even more reason to avoid plugging strange hardware into a valuable PC, as some sticks can fry the PC electronics.

It is easy to blind people with science, and in the modern age, to baffle them with buzzwords. At Skill Zone we try our best to keep jargon out of our conversations with customers, but it is an uphill battle.
