Agreed, when any of these events is left to its own merits, it can easily be labeled as a terrorist act. However in context, they were coordinated (to some degree) to enable the Continental Army to succeed in overthrowing British rule in the colonies. Our own military used a coordinated barrage against Baghdad widely televised as "Shock and Awe". Counted on its own merits, it was large scale terrorism.

Couldn't I technically do this anyway by properly setting up my computer with my cable box?

Let's see:
TV Tuner card
Cable Box
Wireless Router
Ability to remote into computer hosting the TV Tuner

Yep, looks feasible to me. Sure there might be some limitation with QAM/ClearQAM, but it certainly looks possible.

Hardware feature creep, not software.

But even then he's still mostly wrong. Apple is one of the first to drop legacy technologies; the obvious one coming to mind is the 3.5" floppy drives. However, it is rather difficult to customize what you do/don't want in an Apple computer. You either get the whole shebang or a couple less features i.e. MacBook Pro vs. non-Pro (IANAMU, I'm not an Mac user).
