Computer genius?


Of course, they didn’t ask “Can you make your hard drive work?” Also, an IQ score is supposed to be normalized. When half of the respondants are getting over 110, it needs to be renormalized. I wonder if this is just that MS (NBC) underestimates the intelligence of their users.

    i think it makes unwarranted assumptions about getting email wirelessly cause it wasn’t giving me points for that, even though generally i don’t get my secure email outside of a ssh session. it scored me 197 or some nonsense

    Only got 147. I suspect that’s cause I don’t need a PDA and have no use for a digital camera (or no money).

    202.. I didn’t like the assumption that if you open attachments from unknown senders this is bad. Is exporting them to a unix environment and decompiling them something they think _lowers_ your Digital IQ? ;)

    And it was no surprise that you scored higher than me.

    Scored a 147 also Fabio. Must attribute at least some of that score to religiously reading PC magazine for years now (I think I still have the issue whose cover exclaimed 300 MgHZ, the faster processor yet!).

    Am thinking that you 200+ people scare me a little bit!

    Digital IQ
    Test Your Digital IQ I scored a 202. One of my professors snagged a 240. I think average is around 110. Man I’m a geek… ;)…
