these people are really into their Macs

These people are really into Apple. I love the iJac. Click on the title of this posting to see more. I might carve a pumpkin, but Justin is anti-Mac symbols on our pumpkins. I don't want to do it because I'm an Appleophile, it's because it's different. I'm excited about carving our pumpkins, even if it's a plain old face. What kind of things do you carve into your pumpkins?

I dig the mac-o-lantern.

Someday soon, there will again be a Mac in our home. I started on a Mac -- I have no rationale for an anti-Mac stance.

I'm not anti-Mac per se. I convinced Marla to get an iMac (see "Threats?" post, of which the title has nothing to do with me). I just don't like them enough to turn a kid's paganism arts and crafts' project into free ad space for Apple.

On the other hand, if you've read the post I just mentioned, look how that turned out. We're still waiting for the new computer, which I now found out has 512 MB of RAM soldered into one of the two RAM slots on the motherboard. This means in order to upgrade our RAM, we have to do it all on one stick. Good luck even finding a single 2 GB RAM stick. Oh, Apple has it....for $1200!!! We could almost buy or own ship for that. To which Marla could say, "Yeah, but who's gonna design on it, kid? You?"

That being said, great job Apple on OS X. Up yours, Apple, on your hardware monopoly tactics and finding any way to use them to screw over your client base that either:

a) doesn't know any better

b) does know better somewhere deep in their brain housing group, but is too busy to compute it cause they're too busy drooling over the latest white plastic square you've released

c) all of the above

Hey Jobs, spend a little less time dropping acid (literally - Watch the movie, "Pirates of Silicon Valley") and think about what's best for your customers instead of everything having to be a "Think Different," kinda deal, whether it better or not. Put OS X version "Feral Cat," or "Liger" or whatever you decide to call it in a shrink wrapped box I can install on my Dell; or better yet, a PC I built myself where I got to choose the RAM I put in it.

Justin has his opinions, eh? Thanks, honey... I see you are still disturbed.
