Apple is in the business of taking a normal product (PC, music player, tablet etc.) and dumbing it down and making it proprietary then selling it at a high price. Our population is renowned for doing stupid stuff so this fits in line. We LOVE cults. Apple is a cult, like The Raiders or Sam's Club. People love to isolate themselves into little groups so they can sit around and hate on other groups. Also they are lazy and want someone else to do everything for them. SO you can bank on the fact that Apple WON'T spend that money on something good like paying Americans to build their products and re-investing in real education and research and not how to make more shiny shit.

The straw was back in elementary school when I learned that Christopher Columbus discovered America......with people on it. Then the second straw was The War on Drugs with a soon to follow third straw, which was the PMRC. As I got older I learned that there was a whole fucking hayfield of straw. -- One nation under God.

Unfortunately, I am too poor to make the trip to Washington D.C. to help replace the government. I am also unarmed. My vote is weightless, as it cannot fall on either side of the fence given. I hear so much grumbling in the wind. I have heard it since the '70s. 40+ years later, NOTHING. Riots where people destroy their own neighborhoods is not what I want to sign up for. Seems if say, like 60,000,000 of us show up in Washington D.C. then maybe we can rip out the old fence and put up a new one with sides that mean something. Slavery is alive and well in the USA. We are slaves to our own greed. And selfishness. And fear. And hate. And Government. And the Government Minded. But I believe these are treasonous words in this police state, and I fear I may end up in Gitmo. SO... I retract all that was previously stated and label this for "entertainment purposes only".

I can now LEGALLY marry a penis but I still can't LEGALLY smoke a joint. I can join the military at age 18, but I can't legally buy alcohol at the corner store. I can evolve from a monkey, but I have yet to have an urge to eat fleas. FUCK THIS SHITHOLE AND ALL THE ASSHOLES WHO MADE IT THIS WAY. ANARCHY FOREVER. ENJOY THAT SATAN PENIS.

Ironically I like to run a .bat file that removes ALL extensions from my Windows installs. Been doing it since DOS. My directory listings are so much cleaner now. Only real drawback is that I always have to use my friends PC to see anything in them!!!

Well, that's just it. We don't have to willingly submit to Oracle. The software is free. Sometimes the analogy of a broken clock being right twice a day applies. In the fly by night world of free software, sometimes it is nice to have something that is cross platform, free, and backed by a large company. This software is VERY useful to a LOT of people and until it breaks or can't function, it will continue to be used. P.S. There may be a handful of us that know ALL corporations are jacked and so we don't care where it comes from as long as it works and peeps have checked it for holes.
