Chris Evans rants about smart technology on Twitter; Robert Jr, Mark Ruffalo team up to tutor him
In the Marvel Universe, Captain America aka Steve Rogers was pretty quick to adapt to technology following his revival, decades after World War 2. However, it seems Evans is quite opposite to his character in real life. In his recent Twitter rant, the Avengers star had an "angry" letter for the "smart" technology that features in almost every appliance these days.
Dear All Technology,
Remember the 90’s when you just WORKED??? I don’t need a ‘smart’ feature on my TV, thermostat, lights, music, refrigerator, security cameras, and f-ing car. You’re a major pain in all of our asses. You’re not worth it.

It certainly delighted his fans who were quick to respond with their own not-so-positive experiences with smart tech. It even got the attention of Elon Musk who commented "great thread", complete with a laughing emoji.

What started off as a morning rant for modern day devices, turned out to be a mission for Science Bros. Iron Man, aka Robert Downey Jr was prompt in helping out Evans with his technological woes.
hey @MarkRuffalo looks like Cap needs a little tutoring from the science bros.

The Science Bros, for those unfamiliar, is what fans endearingly call the duo of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. Naturally, Mark Ruffalo had to chime in with, "Call or DM us whenever you need assistance, @ChrisEvans. Also language." (That last part is a reference to the Avengers: Age of Ultron gag in which Captain America asked for his fellow superheroes to keep their language PG).
Though, we are unaware who solved Evans technology issues, the twitter exchange sure made a lot of people's day.
