All tech I touch fudges up. Why?

Uh oh. Another stupid D.M.RG7620 thread. Prepair yourselves!

I have a rant.

Every piece of technology I touch fu*ks up. No matter how expensive. No matter how great it works for everyone else. I'll just make a list.

•Motorola Droid. I can't even describe that phones problems in one post. Dead.
•MONTH OLD iPhone 4S. Freezes and closes apps at random times. Still works.
•PS3 #1. Constant freezes. Died during a system update. Dead.
•PS3 #2. Constant freezes. Won't play some PS3 games. Still works.
•X-Box 360 #1. Red ring. Dead.
•X-Box 360 #2. Red ring. Dead.
•X-Box 360 #3. Constant freezes. Replaced by PS3 #2. Not sure if working.
•Zune. Tragically KIA (sadly. That was perfect to its last breath). Dead.
•Zune HD. "Friend" stole and sold for drugs. Sucked anyway. Hopefully dead.
•Alarm clock. Only goes off when it feels like it.
•Floor fan. Dead.
•Ceiling fan. Dead.
•Bathroom fan vent. Dead.
•RG7620. Terrible frets. Refuses to play well.
•Cable box. Doesn't always respond.
•TV remote. Doesn't always work.
•TV. Doesn't always pick up on different input channels.
•Line 6 Spider IV 15W. Picked up German fu*king radio.
•20 or so random cables. Dead.
•PSP. Dead.
•Nintendo DS. Dead.
•Velocity Micro M10. Hard drive fail. Then dead pixels. Death by golf club.
•Small radio #1. Dead.
•Small radio #2. Dead.
•Brothers computer. Worst computer on the planet now.


And that's not even counting all of the crap that I lost.

But seriously, I work my ass off to afford this stuff (with a few gifted to me, of course). Why the hell does it all suck then in my hands? I treat it all very well. Proper maintainance is always done. Oh, forgot to mention, I'm only 18 years old. This is all within a couple years! Three at most!

Do I have some kind of fu*king electro-magnetic field around me that ruins everything that runs on electricity or something?

Rant over!
-Damien.

I read this post and my monitor started twitching. Please be careful, I wouldn't want you to crash the internet.

I think the only thing for you to remain to do is,...
Go play acoustic guitar

They say I was the last to use the VRG Builder before it died for those few months. . . .

Think I can kill it again?

Oh, I forgot to mention, the things that die also have a way of coming back to life after about a year of me not using them haha.

Re: All tech I touch fudges up. Why?

I'm sorry, but I found this thread mildly amusing....
That said, I've had similar luck... but... never had a phone, and I got dialup!

Seems like a questionnaire time!!...

•PS2. Only plays PS1 games well. PS2 games must be pristine to kinda run, but must be brand new. Won't play [I]any[I] DVD, even if it was brand new.
•Numerous 20$ Mp3 players... ya get what you pay for, right? Dead.
•Floor fan. Dead more often then not. We have a lot of trouble cooling our house, so we always have 3 or so of these around. In the summer, we have to buy a fan about once a month!
•Ceiling fan. Dead. Why else do I need all the other fans?
•Bathroom fan vent. Dead.
•Cable box. What's that??
•TV remote. Doesn't always work.
•The Radios in my house....hmmm. The CDs don't play on one. The cassettes play on neither. Broken antennae on both. Car radio broken.
•Only good piece of audio/home entertainment gear, a 1990 Panasonic system, the 5 CD changer stopped turning about a month or two ago.
•Our *New* computer (which was about 4 years ago at this point) died about a week after warranty. Back on this 8 year old.
