    Attention! People looking!
    The computer isn't for poking with fingers or grabbing with yer' mitts. It can easily snap springs, blow a fuse or spark and pop popcorn. It isn't to be used by idiots. The rubber-necked [?] must keep their cotton-picking hands in their pockets, relax, and watch the blinking lights.

    Do I win?

    I'm guessing its another way of saying people of a curious nature. Like the people who seemingly must turn their heads to gawk at an accident on the opposite carriageway of a motorway (rubbernecking), despite holding others up.

    Oh, I know that.. the [?] was to signify I had no idea what Sichtseeren might have been.
    Maybe 'Sightseeing'? Like noseying around? Looking it up would be no fun, though xP

    Rubbernecken sichtseeren = rubber-necking sightseers (I.e. nosey parkers who have come to gawp)


    ... as any student of O Level German with a scraped grade C from the 1980s can tell you

    My translation:

    Attention! All readers!

    The computer-machine is not for finger-poking and grabbing with your mits. It's easy to snap the springy bits, blow fuses and pop corks with lots of sparks. It is not for operation by idiots. Rubber-necking sightseers must keep their hands in their pockets; relax and watch the flashing lights.
