Apple finally throws down the gauntlet and explodes some common myths about their products. I could’ve used this information last week when I got into an argument with a die-hard Windoze fan. Her main point was Myth #3 (“The software I need isn’t available for Macs.”) After the Snook and I spent ten minutes explaining that it was, we got her to admit that what she really meant was “The pirate software I need isn’t as easily available on Macs.” Well, no duh. If you’re looking for a platform for warez, Windoze is your bitch. If you’re looking for a well-designed, easy-to-use, powerful-as-all-hell computer (with tons of legitimately free software to boot, thanks to OSX’s Unix roots), then a Mac is for you.

On a related note, did I mention that I finally got my iPod? I love love love it. I’ve just about filled it up (over 1200 songs!), which – granted – isn’t my entire music library, but it’s more than enough to keep me happy at the gym (or in my eventual work commute). And it looks so cool. All the gay guys at the gym envy me.

  1. hey, speaking of gay… did you see this? FINALLY! now will you believe me that she’s gay?? just like i said about ellen years ago…

  2. Speaking of gay? What?

    Anyway, yeah, I and the rest of the universe saw it. You know, when you proclaim, like, EVERY star gay, you’re bound to be right sooner or later. I’m just sayin’, I would be givin’ you more credit for the prediction if you didn’t say it about everybody. 🙂

  3. Oh. Sorry. Gay guys. I missed that in my post. I thought you were throwing out a total non sequitur there.

  4. who else have i said was gay besides ellen, rosie, and jodie foster???

  5. Like, every female athlete ever, for instance. Uh, and Portia de Rossi.

  6. Oh, and half of our group of friends. 🙂

  7. yeah right!! and portia de rossi IS gay!!!

  8. Dude, keep your gaydar off my website. Now I’m gonna be getting all kinds of Google hits for “Portia de Rossi gay lesbian porno” and crap!

  9. Hmmmmm Apple hmmmmmmm I feel resistance crumbling though is homesite still not available for it? – thought I’d change the topic.

  10. Good idea. No Homesite (well, I could run it on Virtual PC, I guess), but you’d be surprised how good BBEdit is once you get used to it.

  11. i wish my gym were crawling with hot gay guys. i also wish i had an iPod. and that i lived in Australia with my sweet man. and that he had an accent…

    we gotta code green ovah heah, folks.

    i’m still pushing for J. to get stationed over in Australia. GAWD that would be so sweet.
