but at least they got their audience right, idiots that cant figure out the slightest thing, and they pay the premium for it too!

So... a product that doesn't require knowledge of the underlying system and just works smoothly and quietly while the user can just focus on what they actually bought the product for? Yeah, those Mac users are real suckers--I can't believe they actually think that sort of thing is worth paying extra for!

Less sarcastically, if I buy a car, I don't want to have to learn mechanic skills and spend time constantly tweaking things to keep it running smoothly. I just want to put in gas and drive. In addition to that, at most, I need perform minor maintenance or pay someone a small fee to do so--and when the car needs some, it tells me! Why are Mac users idiots and suckers for wanting that sort of experience with their computers?

The appeals court not only agreed that the user's suspension by Facebook constitutes censorship, but the ruling itself negates Facebook's insistence that all legal challenges take place in its native California.

According to the article, the court didn't say anything about the alleged censorship. It just ruled that the clause in Facebook's terms and conditions that all lawsuits had to take place in California was invalid.
