How to survive when Instagram is down

@badbanana

This Tweet makes us wonder whether cavemen draw their snacks on cave walls. Would you even eat something delicious if there’s not a record of it online?

Staring out of the window

@thomas_violence

The other bonus of smartphones is that they help you avoid eye contact, make small talk or engage in any form of social interaction. Yep, technology!

Amazon is always selling

@WritePlay

Order something on Amazon once and you’ll forever be bombarded with ads and notifications to buy more. Or maybe the company knows that you really love watches?

Clickbait jokes are the best

@andyvale

You might not enjoy clickbait articles, but you’ve got to appreciate a good clickbait joke. You won’t believe how hilarious they are.

Uber Eats vs Wikipedia

@lollyadefope

Technology makes everything easier – from getting anything you want delivered to your house in a very short time to learning something new with ease. Choose wisely how you spend your hard-earned cash. Knowledge is power, but food is life.

Microwave meal mishaps

How many people will admit to having this problem? We certainly do. But at least we can also admit to recycling the packaging as we should, so it’s easy enough to dig out again.

Amazon at it again

@justinshanes

Amazon doesn’t just want you to buy more watches. It also knows that you need more than one humidifier.

Facebook jokes

@MKBHD

Facebook gets a lot of flack for privacy and advertising standards. Plenty of people have a story about adverts suddenly appearing for things they’ve talked about with family or friends but never actually searched for. Does Facebook just know you that well?

Film Noir of emoticons

@jami0mckay

If you’re using these emoticons over the standard ones you must lead an interesting life. Like an old-time Private Eye or super sleuth.

Smart water

@KSIOlajidebt

Sometimes smart technology isn’t always that smart. When you have to upgrade your fridge before you can get some water, isn’t it easier just to use a tap?

Apple Pencil sketches

@amberdiscko

Sketching on your Apple iPad might not be quite as romantic as in a notebook, but it certainly lends itself to a good joke.

Arnie loves Vista

@Dadsaysjokes

Generally speaking people don’t think much of Microsoft’s Windows Vista, but that doesn’t make this joke any less amusing.

Hang up the phone

@EnglishJason

A sure-fire way to show your age to young whippersnappers who have grown up in the smartphone era and have no idea why you’d have to “hang up” the telephone in order to end the call.

There is no error

@sageboggs

Nothing to see here, move along. An error message from Apple to warn the user that there is no error. Good to know.

Ryan Reynolds on parenting

@VancityReynolds

Desperate parents will do anything to break away from their kids. Ryan Reynolds even took to Tinder, we expected Crystal and Janine to be disappointed when they turned up for a good time.

Smartphone addiction

@byclintedwards

In the good old days, our parents warned us that watching too much TV would make our eyes go square. Now everyone is hooked on their smartphone, even our children. They’re also determined to take it off you to play games, leaving sticky fingerprints all over the screen. Bad times.

Background noise

@sarcasticmommy4

Never mind wasting electricity, the new generation loves watching multiple screens at once. But then we’re also all guilty of looking at our phones while the TV is on. What a time to be alive.

Feeling old yet?

@mamaspohr

Kids nowadays don’t know what they’ve got and when you’re forced to explain how when you were young there were just a few channels or everything was black and white, you really started to feel old.

Be brave like Internet Explorer

@MatPatGT

Poor old Internet Explorer gets a lot of grief, but maybe you can take some inspiration and motivation from its determination.

USB frustrations

@cluedont

We all know how frustrating plugging a USB device can be. Thank goodness for the advent of USB-C and a much less annoying future.

If smartphones were smarter

@Here_To_Laugh

If smartphones were smarter you wouldn’t lose them. Of course, it is possible to find your phone with the help of Google Assistant, Siri and other technology now but it’s still not perfect.

Microsoft Word jokes

@MeredithFrost

Visual jokes with pie charts are always a joy. Even more so when they accurately highlight how frustrating technology can be.

Russian Doll jokes

@MooseAllain

This tweet could almost have been shared from a Dad jokes Twitter account, hilarious japes about real world things created with tech.

@nolbatdej

You’ve got to make sure your password is Rock solid in order to stay safe online. Make a password that even The Rock would be proud of.

Your printer has become self aware

Shariv67

Always secure your devices or you risk falling victim to some hilarios shenanigans perpetrated by your neighbours. We do like the idea that the printer could send messages though, but then printer ink is always so expensive it could be very painful.

Explaining technology

contriteperson

We’ll happily admit to having this thought. Imagine going back in time to before the smartphone began taking off and putting out your own version with all the awesome features of today’s tech. But how? How does it work? All black magic obviously.

Reasons he’s not texting you

WhitePeopIeCray

Kids nowadays have probably never seen a rotary phone, but we’d like to think if they did own one they’d know it wasn’t able to receive text messages.

Big brain searches

SortaBad

Technology isn’t all that great if the user is struggling to use logic or memory recall. Of course Google’s algorithms and understanding of user behavior is improving all the time, but even the search giant struggled with “barcode animals” as a standard search.

Netflix accounts

bruhmaar

Who isn’t gaming the Netflix system nowadays by giving friends of family members access to their account? Well, one cheeky devil got away with it by just pretending to be an account settings page.

Overthinking Captchas

Philz_adamz

We totally get this Tweet and we know you do too. Those Captcha images can be tricky when you’ve got to select every square that contains a specific thing and there’s an overlap. Getting it wrong means the misery of having to do to another. And what if you get that wrong too? Will the horror never end?

USB is a pain

@ChrisEvans

Even Captain America has problems with plugging in USB cables. So you (and we) don’t need to feel bad about struggling with it.

Change your password

@craydrienne

Sad but true. If you miss your kids then you’ll soon get to speak to them if nothing else if you simply change your Netflx password. Or Disney Plus, Amazon…

Explain how it works

elleohell

We live in a time full of technology of all kinds, large and small. But would you be able to explain how it works if you traveled back in time and started bragging about it?
