Recently one of my friends approached a hardware vendor in Thane to but a new PC.As is the norm these days , I suggested that him to buy an AMD based machine.And to the biggest surpise in my life , this what the vendor's so called engineer told him."If you buy AMD based machine it will give problems after a year or so"( as if there is an inbuilt timer which signals the start of destruction) :) "Also Microsoft Word will not run on AMD processor"This was the biggest shocker!!!!!!!And the even bigger joke is that my friend is also an Electronics Engg student from Mumbai Univ and he believed what the other "engineer" said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The PC servicing shops use the term "engineer" too loosely nowadays!The real ones feel cheap & de-valued that such ppl can also be called "engineers"!!!! :(

seriously prathapml u are right, some days back I saw an ad which read "Become a Computer Engineer for Rs. 500 only". I was totally pissed off with that ad because I slogged for 4 long years in college spending almost 50k/year as fees to get one damn degree of B.E and these people claim to make u a comp engg in 500 bucks :angry:coming to the topic, there are many people who call themselves engg's and talk shit to customers who do not have any knowledge of computers just to sell their stuff. Not much fault of ur friend either bec nobody wants to risk anything before investing so much spl when one does not has enough knowledge of it...
