Bugs in LaptopThis picture is for real. One of my service techs in the store I run found this nice little surprise when he opened a laptop for diagnosis. Yes, those are real bugs. Which reminded me that the term “bugs” came from back in the day of vacuum tube computers. Operators had to diligently troubleshoot the problems caused by insects finding their way into those early computers. The term has stuck to this day, but it rarely does it refer to what we found here.┬áThis computer definitely needed to be debugged … in the original sense!
