Irony is when the person saying they can live for days without a computer being the loudest to complain when they can't read their e-mail

As computers become more ubiquitous, they become more transparent. As companies try to convince that doing something on the computer is easy, they obscure the difficult work already in place or hidden from users views. In the end, we have contradictions like these.
All of us send e-mail. At a push of a button, our friend gets to read what we said a few seconds ago, a million miles away. But like the brave and proud members of the postal service who our parents used to take for granted, we too have taken for granted all that is in place and working for the e-mail to reach our loved ones. Just because the action for you has become more trivial, the efforts to make that action work don't become as trivial, too. Users who are purely driven by their need and wallow in their ignorance of everything else, display ingratitude to the powers that made things be. That seems to be quite fashionable now. Especially when the lines promoted is to act like a million buck just because you feel like a million bucks.
Another favorite one is: "Don't look at what I'm doing on my computer but I expect you to know about my computer problems before I do."
