I was spending the weekend at my grandparent’s house to have a family Christmas celebration. My cousin brought his Xbox 360 and his new Madden game. While we were playing it, my grandpa commented about how real it looks. From that point on, whenever we watched an actual game on TV, he would ask “Now, is this real life or is it on the PlayBox?”

IdioTech: iPhones With Messaging Are Heavier, Obviously [Click for all]
I was showing my grandma how to use an iPhone yesterday. My grandpa already has one, so I figured it would be an easy thing for her to grasp. As she held mine, she said that mine was definitely heavier than my grandpa’s (we both have the 4…) I said no, that’s not possible, because we have the same phone. Then, straight faced, she said mine has to weigh more because it has messaging. Yeah.- potentially-problematical
My mom sends me messages on facebook, then texts me to tell me she sent me a message.- Anonymous

One day my professor used Bing to search for and go to Google images.- Kerry H 
my mother believes you can only exit out of a website a go to a new one if you close internet explorer and reopen it again…she also still uses internet explorer…- academicwanker
My dad was having trouble getting on his outlook email. One of the ladies that works for him asked if his internet was connected, which is a normal thing to ask in that situation. It was his reply of, “I don’t care about the internet, I want my email!” was the real cause of my snickering that day.- seafoampterodactyl

IdioTech: Jesse Eisenberg Invented Facebook
According to my mom, Facebook was only invented 3 years ago. Also, Jesse Eisenberg, not Mark Zuckerberg, was its creator. She’s positive about both of these things because she watched The Social Network.- Anonymous
Somebody hacked my email and sent out spam to a bunch of people including my grandma. My grandma called my mom and asked her why I would send her a request for a penis enlarger. She then sent an email to everyone who it was sent to saying it wasn’t my fault, and I would never send something like that!
