Debates featuring technology issues never fail to be interesting. With all kinds of modern inventions and ideas being formed, technology is practically permeating our entire world. It’s best to know as much as you can about it.

Some of these questions are baffling, with even the most learned experts unable to agree on one answer. Some are age old while others have recently surfaced. Others are simply a matter of opinion (Ford vs. Chevy anyone?)

But we all know that with certain people in our lives, there can be hot button issues. Issues that, if even remotely referred to, you’re bound to hear a rampage about why one is better than the other. A rampage that goes on for awhile. But sometimes those rampages are interesting if a bit heated. So if you’d like to start Uncle Jo going next time you’re at a family gathering, simply refer to this article.
