Tell Us Your Best Christmas Tech-Fail Stories

By Chris Mills on at

Each Christmas, many of you probably end up relaxing back at your childhood homes or spending time with your family. And by relaxing, of course, I mean fixing the Wi-Fi router, updating iTunes, and explaining for the eighth time what 'the cloud' is.

But, naturally, these people are family. Which means that you have to grin, nod along, and agree that yes, Apple did make those menu options too difficult to find, and no, you're right, it doesn't just work. You can't moan and quietly curse, or explain to your great-aunt in so many words that it's not really your problem if they've downloaded the internet's collection of adware onto their groaning netbook.

Still, it's not happening just yet. You're in the internet civilisation among other people who have successfully managed to navigate to this web page, meaning you're safe for now. So tell us your stories.
