I got that one right! and being a sci-fi fan the reasoning for its importance is that these technologies are usually thought up in a what-if type situation only to be fully realized later on down the line.

I had a quick look last night (only did the first 5 questions - got them all right ) and was going to try again this morning. Unfortunately, the quiz seems to have been removed.

Ehmm, it seems Maximum PC havn't paid for the Quiz software, hence a demo from Quizrevolution is running.

Morale? Pay up, bitches...!

I got the strobe light question right with a pure guess, and the description given makes sense with that name.

I got the first female PhD Computer Scientist right, which I think said only 17% of users got right. Doing Computer Science myself, we're expected to know who our predecessors are

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Yeah, the quiz is now down. I have a subscription to Maximum PC, so it's currently sitting in my laptop bag. I usually glance over these things....because they ask some really obscure stuff and I'll be honest I don't keep up with the transistor count on the latest GPU's, or how many pixel shaders each and every video card has. Like most people, I don't commit that stuff to memory, but simply look it up on the net when I'm ready to make a purchase.

Well if the quiz is down that saves me the embarrassment of getting more wrong than right

At one question, I just broke into a meme out of madness:
"Y U NO HAVE USB 3.0?!"

I stopped taking the quiz when it asked about Minecraft default player skin. WTH does that have to do with anything?

Hmm...This Quiz is biased.
You’ve absorbed everything we’ve been teaching you and more.
hinting all the questions are answered by reading Maximum PC.
