This is a discussion on How to become a computer expert within the Off-Topic forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; xkcd: Tech Support Cheat Sheet Tim...
Have to admit it, more often than not this is exactly what I do.
Don't worry. As long as we don't tell them about Advanced Google Searches, our jobs are safe.
Next year it won't be "ask tech support" it will be "ask Siri"....
Funny, years ago it was Toms root boot, then it was bootable knoppix, now it's the iPad and google.
Ah, but do your remember Alta Vista?
Jeeves! Don't forget Jeeves...oh, and Dogpile!
OMG! Dogpile still exists!
But Alta Vista was first of all web crawlers, or at least the first to become popular. Yahoo existed, but because web sites were added manually it was far more limited (though at times that was a good thing.)
BTW, Ask Jeeves became just Ask.com, the butler no longer does it.
Ha ha you guys are all showing your age now!
