26 Jan Glimpse at my nerd side- PC vs Macs
Ok so I know this has nothing to do with ostomies or my life or anything, but I felt the need to blog and maybe get some responses, because I’m annoyed.
For those who don’t know- I’m an AVID PC supporter and hate hate hate Macs. [I’m also a huge computer nerd but that’s beside the point]
What I hate about Macs is how simplified they make things. I feel like I’m a 10 year old child that Apple felt needed a simplified version of technology in order to use it. I also hate how hard it is to customize the internal structure of the computer and make it my own because they put up “easy to use” options. I also hate the operating system… Not that Windows Vista was ANYTHING good, but I’m on Windows 7 now, which is an improvement. I know the big thing with Macs is that they don’t get viruses, but like I said, if you don’t act like a 10 year old child and watch what you search for on the internet and are careful with that you download- you wont get any.
What I don’t understand is how the heck people think they are the GOD of technology.
I’m watching Global National right now and they just had a segment on how Mac is releasing its NEW AND AMAZING tablet tomorrow and how it’s “going to revolutionize” newspapers and media as a whole. Why? Because it’s a tablet! [For those who don’t know what a tablet computer is, it’s just a screen that you can hold and touch and write on and it’s like a thicker piece of paper] Apparently, this is the NEW WAVE of technology.
No. No it’s not.
You know why it’s not?
Because the computer that I am typing on right now, the computer I bought last year… IS A TABLET by HP.
Yes, my laptop is a tablet PC where it works as a laptop and then the screen flips and folds to let me do all the things Apple is claiming their new tablet will do such as read newspapers online and even- wait for it- watch VIDEO FROM THE NEWSPAPERS ON IT.
Guess what, Apple. I’ve been doing it for a year.
