Default Quotes from old people who are totally dumbfounded by computers

The title should explain, but heres a few quotes from people I know who are particularly inept at using a computer.

Mom on the phone: Alex, do you have a photoshop?
Me: What?
Mom: Well, I need to edit a picture, is there a photoshop near my house I can go to?
Me: Mom, photoshop is a program--not an actual place.
Mom: Oh, so where does the picture go?

Dad: Alex, someone sent me a ping, but it doesn't play a sound.
Me: You mean they sent you a file that is supposed to make a ping sound?
Dad: Well, yeah, it says ping--png, all I see is a picture though, no ping sound.
Me: Dad, png stands for Portable Network Graphic. It's a picture file.
Dad: So how do I get a ping?

I was carrying around a CD to put in my car on a cold and rainy day and my friend said: Doesn't that give the CD viruses?

SHARE.

I swear I'm not laying when I say this. A customer asked it of me:

"What does the big button on the front of my computer do?"

That reminds me of this bash.org quote:

#104052 +(11428)- [X]

<NES> lol
<NES> I download something from Napster
<NES> And the same guy I downloaded it from starts downloading it from me when I'm done
<NES> I message him and say "What are you doing? I just got that from you"
<NES> "getting my song back f-----"

You should've told him it ended the world or something.
