Ever have one of the following things happen?:
- Your PC will blue screen in the middle of an important business presentation with a giant error message on the big screen for all to see.
- Your laptop will completely lock up when you’re writing an important paper for school with a deadline looming, causing your grade to drop from an A to an F.
- Your instant messenger or Skype application will screech to a halt, crashing right in the middle of an important conversation with someone you’re trying to date.
- While playing an online game, the frame rate will drop to just 3 frames per second, crashing your game just as you’re about to level up.
