Computer Crime and Security
High technology has become commonplace in today's environment, and it is no surprise that it has also found its way into the criminal domain. For a new breed of criminals, computers are rapidly becoming the "weapon of choice." There are four major categories of computer crime: internal computer crimes--trojan horses, logic bombs, trap doors, worms, and viruses; telecommunications crimes--phreaking and hacking; computer manipulation crimes that result in embezzlement and fraud; and traditional thefts of hardware and software.

Computer Stupidities
http://rinkworks.com/stupid/

It's a baffling phenomenon that in today's society an individual, who might in other circumstances be considered smart and wise, can sit down in front of a computer screen and instantly lose every last shred of common sense he ever possessed.
Complicate this phenomenon with a case of "computerphobia," and you end up with tech support personnel having phone conversations that are funny in retrospect but seem like perfectly valid motives for wild machine gun shooting sprees at the time.
