The Stroustrup Effect

"There's an old story about the person who wished his computer were as easy to use as his telephone. That wish has come true, since I no longer know how to use my telephone." - Bjarne Stroustrup, inventor of C++.

This effect had now moved on to the electric kettle. The new model in the office has multiple reservoirs so that you can fill it yet boil only enough water for one cup. Great idea. Trouble is, we had to have a session during our morning stand-up to demonstrate its use.

Do they put it next to the bowls of free muesli and hemp bags? Next thing you know you'll be offsetting the carbon emissions from boiling the bloody thing.

That's what you get for working for a bunch of socialists.
