Cyber Retard

Late Heidegger can't do it. The collected works of Paul Celan can't do it. But using a computer is enough to make cyber retard George Steiner admit defeat:

The electronic screen has become the mirror of man. Already it seems likely that those communities and individuals (I am very much among them) incapable of mastering the processor and its keyboard, the search-mechanism and its 'surfing' will be relegated to a new under-class, to being helots of oblivion.

[Quotation ends]

Not just the 'processor' but its keyboard too, eh? For God's sake man it's just a bloody computer! If you really need to be such an arse, can you at least stop publishing any more drivelling essays about it in P.N. Review?
