Thye say that computers and other modern technology are easy. But that's not always the case. Consider this statement that a comedian told:

Sometimes you need a little help to figure something out or to get the most out of one of your devices. Feel free to send in your questions and we will do our best to answer them. Remember there is no such thing as a stupid question, except the one you don't ask!
