Stating the obvious

More lazy technology journalism. Here’s how I picture the scene. Major news event results in overloaded news websites. Technology editor wonders how this can be prevented. Technology journalist calls a local IT expert. The IT expert says “um well, a bigger computer would help.”

And that’s more or less what the editor runs with. I wonder how “big” they imagine hardware needs to be. Size of a house? A small city? Poor, lazy, worthless journalism, again.
