But it doesn't really matter anyway because in the end we all lose out; Domestic and Foreign alike! In 15-20 years you won't speak to people. You'll speak to computers with AI.
Dell: "Hello, this is Micro$oft Sam XP Technical Support edition powered by Windows. How can I help you?"
Me: "My computer won't run. It gets to the bios and then locks up."
Dell: "To turn on your computer, hit the button with the I and O together."
Me: "Yes, I did that, but it wont' load into windows. I need someone to fix my machine."
Dell: "To load windows just start up your computer, it's that easy!"
Me: "I Know that, but it won't work!"
Dell: "Sounds like your computer has a hardware problem. Can you turn it on?"
Me: "NO! It won't turn on."
Dell: "Try hitting the reset button on the bottom of your machine."
Me: "There is no reset button!"
Dell: "Next, try the power button"
Me: "ARGH! I want to talk to a manager now!"
Dell: "Ok, please wait"
Dell: "Hello, this is Micro$oft Sam Supervisor edition powered by Windows. I see you have a problem turning on your computer. What is your order number?"
Dell: "Is 5 4 7 6 8 1 0 correct?"
Me: "No! 546782"
Dell: "Ok. So what do you require help with?"
Me: "My computer won't turn on"
Dell: "I'm sorry, I couldn't understand that. Please speak slow and clearly by pronouncing each syllable of each word"
