room-temperature IQ

slang The IQ possessed by an inept computer user. Room temperature is 70 degrees in Fahrenheit and 21 degrees in Celsius—two numbers significantly lower than the average IQ (which is around 100). I know this design change makes sense to us, but will someone with a room-temperature IQ be able to navigate it?
