Computer users get chance to vent frustration
COMPUTER users continually annoyed by their slow PCs got the chance to ease their suffering at a "frustration zone" set up by computer experts in Cabot Circus.
The one-stop-shop allowed people to take out their pent-up stress on punch bags and boxing machines.
Once their aggression was let out visitors were given the chance to work out their problems with the aid of some computer performance and stability tricks.
According to gadget expert Suzi Perry, who officially launched the Frustration Zone yesterday, slow, poor-performing PCs are making Brits increasingly frustrated.

New research released today shows the issue has become such a pain point that some Brits would much rather visit the dentist than face a snail-paced computer.
Over a third of those surveyed find a slow PC just as aggravating as an airline losing their luggage and as infuriating as finding fraudulent charges on a credit card. For almost one in three Brits, the frustration is on a par with losing a mobile phone.
Ms Perry said: "There's nothing more frustrating than a slow PC.
"We've all suffered from sluggish computers at one point or another – we've missed deadlines, lost work and been driven to despair by machines grinding to a painful halt.
"Although it can be frustrating, the key is to resist the urge to smash something as there are lots of simple and effective ways to get your tech back up to speed.
"If you can't resist the rage, the Frustration Zone is the perfect place to vent that pent up fury."
