Test Your PC Skills: Geek Quiz 2011

Quote:
Are you a PC know-it-all or a newb? It's time to find out!

Within the span of a generation, one new technology radically changed society, propelling many folks into the realm of the well-connected and well-educated. It was expensive, especially at first, but economies of scale soon brought this technological advance into the homes of millions instead of just an elite few. That’s right: We’re talking about the book.

The Internet has largely replaced the book as a tool for democratizing access to information, but one thing remains true: knowledge is power. And you’d better have some significant knowledge at your disposal if you hope to fare well on the 11th annual Geek Quiz. We’ve collected 55 questions from the easy to the mind-burning to test your knowledge of technology more advanced than deadtreeware. If you’ve been zoned out, it’s OK, but you’d better hit the books. Go ahead. We’ll wait. The Geek Quiz will still be here, mercilessly taunting you until you give it a go.

Don't have time at present to look, I'm just shutting down for the night, but I may look at this tomorrow, that's if I dare can't see me getting a very high score though.

I guess I'm not Geeky enough.

I don't know anything about Android or a lot of the other stuff.

Where is the Win 7 test?

It's a bit more than just knowing about PC. How am I suppost to know what using a strobe light to illuminate an object while keeping the background exposed is called lol. And there's also a question you could only really know if you've seen Terminator movies.

Strobe light I knew from camera/dark room work years ago. Otherwise it would have been a guess.

I got the Micron SSD controller question right. Of course having that particular SSD helped.

I don't know what my score was. It showed at the end but before I could actually focus on it a shutter came down and covered it. Lame. Completely wasted my time.
