Need a word for the inherent frustrations built into technology.  For times when I install something and it doesn't work, so I fix it and fix it and fix it, but it still doesn't work.  So finally I uninstall at and install it again and it works perfectly.

I was thinking perhaps taking a cue from halehadihahal: bodihadihabod, but that might be more for That One Program That Never Works RightTM. Maybe bodidedala (bodibod (computer) + dedala (frustration))?

What about ededamaed (tool) + -e-dama (futile, blameless frustration with reason)?

I have never understood how some companies can dump their laptops and computers with data on hard drives. After all, this can lead to data leakage, and also pollutes the environment. I personally use proper disposal with hard drive destruction. This is a more affordable option for those who do not care about our nature.
