After Microsoft released its wonderful “I’m a PC” advertisements, I wondered what was next for Apple. After all, it’s ingenuous and libelous “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” ads were instantly rendered moot by Microsoft’s more human and humble ads. How could Apple respond and not look like a bunch of arrogant jerks.

Answer: They can’t. And they won’t. It’s in their DNA.

So they’ve responded with a new “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” ad that is both ingenuous and libelous, and once again they come off looking like a bunch of arrogant jerks.

You go Paul!

I only post this because I’m a little worried that RocketDock (windows), the various docks for Linux, and others may disappear (or at least have to be modified to reduce functionality). If you use them, my suggestion would be to download and save the latest versions of these programs. Just in case.

Find linkage on the various articles via Google News.

The news in the last week seems to be all iPhone. I don’t have one and I’ve no plans to get one at this time for a variety of reasons. I only know 3 people with the iPhone. One is a rabid Mac fanboy who wouldn’t ever complain about the iPhone or anything else Apple does. One thinks it’s the best thing since sliced bread. The other routinely has to stop himself from smashing his iPhone against a wall.
So what do you think about the new iPhone, or do you even care?

You guys that have been around here for a while know I LOVE poking fun at Mac users. But when it comes to the OS wars, as we say here in the south “I ain’t got no dawg in this fight”. I want everyone to use what is best for them. Believe me, if I could afford a $3000 Mac I would buy it and tri-boot OS X / Vista / openSUSE. I mean the stock Mac (desktop) comes with 8 freakin’ cores! So I thought I would share this with you. Continue reading »

Noooo, that isn’t possible. Macs are ‘secure’.

Techworld Article:

A former US National Security Agency employee has trousered $10,000 for breaking into a MacBook Air at CanSecWest security conference’s PWN 2 OWN hacking contest. The MacBook was lined up against Linux and Vista PCs – which have so far remained uncracked.

Apples are rotten!

I just couldn’t resist this one:
Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8 chasing Apple’s Safari
You Apple fanboys need to get a grip on reality. They never miss a chance to try and trumpet their supposed superiority. If you look here you’ll see that Safari has a 1.9% share of the browser market and 4.4% of the OS market. That means that even Mac users prefer using Firefox over Safari. It’s just a freakin’ browser guys.
Anyway, if you want to check out MS’s new IE 8 Beta hop on over P.T.’s site for screenshots and here for download links.
I’m gonna pass on this one as I’m already doing Beta testing for MS, I’m using Windows Vista. :wink:
