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.
Ya know, I always wondered how my computer output sound to my TV even though they're only connected by an HDMI cable, then I remembered, you can send audio signals across that same cable. Albeit, ups the price of the monitor.
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).
Yeah, you can tell that to my ASUS nVidia motherboard that I bought last year. I couldn't get the NIC to work on Vista or Win7 beta out of the box. However, I didn't have to bother with the driver on an XP install. It's one of the mainstream quality boards too, nothing exotic about it.
