    I hate it when an analog stick on a controller goes slightly off center causing you to automatically move in the direction it's off.

    YES YES YES YES YES! I like my stuff to be very clean.

    The worst thing is something oily or crumby like potato chips, cheetos, fries, etc. and then on my all touch screen phone. It's a huge pet peeve of mine.

    1. my black friends who use lotion (guh....) come over and use my controller. I only have one then I spend like 20 mins cleaning it head to toe with a cotton swab.

    2. when your computer can't play a video game.....GRRRRRRR

    3. Batteries. This is obvious if you use wireless controllers. However i found out that if u take the vibrate function off in the ps3 settings the controller's battery lasts about 5x longer if not more.

    4. CD Cases and retarded people. If you can't take a damn cd out of a cd case properly, change the damn case ffs. Xbox 360 cases have this problem from what I have seen. Ps3 doesnt but oh well. OR buy a game/CD folder. Much safer and less risk of cracking the CDs

    5. headphones die


    thats about it

    I hate it when stuff actually gets broken. On this new computer I already had to replace the battery for the computer clock, the graphics card and the printer. That's 3 pieces of hardware that needed to be replaced in less than 2 years. I've never seen this happen to prior computers.

    While this may be true I don't necessarily care about the longevity of a lot of my hardware. My computer that I paid $700 for 4 months ago will be worth like $300 2 years from now. And 5 years from now it'll be a joke. I think our technology advanced rate has reached a point where if products only last like 5 years, it's okay because by that point it's obsolete. I still hate it when my stuff breaks but...

    5 years is good, most tablets these days will be useless in 3-5 years max... not only because of lack of hardware but the battery will be dead and most aren't replaceable. The problem is computers aren't even making it 5 years these days... shoot I had two computers have a major hardware issue within the first month just this past year... maybe I'm unlucky but it's not uncommon.

    My old laptop is 3 years old and the battery still holds a charge. Surprised and pleased by it.
