Techopedia explains Finagle's Law
Another element of Finagle’s law is sometimes called "resistentialism," or the "malicious nature of inanimate objects." This is a fairly obscure idea in IT, but something that many technology users might think about when they encounter problems with a device or piece of software. It can often seem like machines or other technologies are "out to get us," despite all evidence against real artificial intelligence.
