Why do people think technology is immune against external forces?


I received a call in my office during a storm which knocked out our power; the woman asked me to check her PC because when she pushed the power button…It was not turning on!

I was dumbstruck…the woman in question had a corner office with huge windows, so I had to ask the question “Have you looked outside yet?” There was a brief pause and a slow response, “Oh! Ok, I see why now!”
