      Alternative usage is to show the world what great taste you have about apps. "I had to uninstall Yahoo Weather. Graphics overdone."

            Bricked

            A piece of hardware that doesn’t function anymore because it was tampered with.
            You seriously messed up that upgrade, and now your entire device has been rendered useless.

            "I tried to install the most recent version of Windows on my old Mac, but it totally bricked the whole computer."

              Dogfooding

              When companies use their own products, often in beta, to test and work out any bugs.
              Dogfooding often results in companies catching glitches in their apps before they're released to the public.

              "They really should have dogfooded that app before they released it — there were so many bugs!"

                Taking a few days away from email, social media, and anything else that involves a glowing screen.
                Practicing major restraint — no Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, etc. for an entire weekend, or any other length of time.

                "Don't worry if you don't hear from me this weekend — I'm doing a digital detox, so I won't see your message until Monday."

                  Boat Anchor

                  Computer so obsolete, It no longer Serves a purpose (i.e. Apple III's)

                  "Whoa! That's a boat anchor."

                    Actually the Apple III is a collector's item and sells for hundreds of dollars. The boat anchor you're looking for is the 286 PC.

                    I think you get it a little wrong. 'Apple-III' is a COLLECTOR'S item/VINTAGE & hence it is not used generally or it does not serves the purpose in present time. So both Apple-III and 286 PC are Boat Anchors. :)

                  BAD

                  Broken As Designed: A product fails to perform as expected, because the company making it intentionally did it that way (either from misunderstanding, or on purpose)

                  Windows 95's auto-redial being limited to 100 redials.

                    Email Bankruptcy

                    When an inbox has thousands of unread emails, and the best solution is to just mass-delete rather than spending days combing through them.
                    If you really tried to read and respond to all of those messages, it might be a very long time before you interacted with another human IRL again.

                    "My inbox is so overwhelming, I'm declaring email bankruptcy. I'm deleting everything sent before September!"
