How to survive when Instragram is down

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

Staring out of the window

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

Amazon is always selling

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

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

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 be, so it's easy enough to dig out again.

Amazon at it again

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

Facebook jokes

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

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

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

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

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

Hang up the phone

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

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

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

Smartphone addiction

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

Nevermind 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?

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 start to feel old.

Be brave like Internet Explorer

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

USB frustrations

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

If smartphones were smarter

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 tech now but it's still not perfect.

Microsoft Word jokes

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

Russian Doll jokes

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

The Rock

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

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

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

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 recieve text messages.

Big brain searches

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

Netflix accounts

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 Captcha

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 do to another. And what if you get that wrong too? Will the horror never end?
