Ha! That's funny, the only Mac I own is a G5. Hooked it up and played with it enough to realize that their claim of "far more intuitive UI" was a marketing fallacy. Ain't turned the thing on in years. Junk.

No, I can't see myself ever paying any money for rotten fruit. It's junk to me. Give me Windows or Linux, or just light that shit on fire.

And those horrible chicklet keys that they have on their pathetic little keyboards. Yuck, reminds me of the old Radio Shack Color Computer with their flat keys. At least not as bad as the TImex/Sinclair 1000, but not a whole lot better.

Fuck Mac People, do you people even do a lot of typing? Those tiny flat ivory keys are hella terrible!!

Everything works... if everything has the latest updates... and you never did anything previously unsupported... and you're not trying to extend functionality beyond what Apple originally envisioned... and you're a paying customer and you call Apple support. Oh, and you're definitely not using iCloud.

OK guys, WTF means "BTO"? New term to me, first I heard of it was after reading about the huge disappointment of the recent Mac refresh. I just googled it and got BTO Sports and a bunch of Japanese sites, so it's apparently some new TLA.

Did something happen to the term "RAM" or is there some further clarification?

"An iPhone is a nearly perfect object. Sleek, attractive, simple."

*Gag* Really? A "perfect object"? This ain't no dodecahedron we're talking about here. It reminds me of an old soap dish. Stop with the worship of cheaply designed disposable tech. It's a bad mindset and bad for the environment.

Sleek? so thin the damn things bend/break all the time. Oh wow, such engineering. How about we go after "battery lasts a week between charges" rather than "Can be used to jimmy a door"

Attractive? I don't think so, personally. They look boring. Really boring.

Simple? Please don't insult the average person's intelligence. This is from the people who thought a mouse with more than one button was too complicated for the average moron.
