productivity - Computer Definition
The products and services we create. In computer advertising, productivity is an overused buzzword. How amazing that every new hardware and software product makes us all more productive. Naturally, the ads never mention the hours of training people need to use it effectively and the wasted time dealing with tech support afterwards. New systems have a tendency to not work the way we expect (see Systemantics). See productivity software.
