How do you like them Apples?

mac_vs_pcRemember these guys? “Hi, I’m a Mac”  ….”And I’m a PC”  …Oh Classics.  These two should be on the show; Whatever happened to?.  

I’m not sure why exactly, but I actually enjoyed those commercials.  they did a good job of getting my attention and providing a chuckle here and there.  I think it may have been Mac never taking PC’s crap.

They feel like a lifetime ago…

I seem to think that mac was struggling back in those days.  That is arguably not the case now however.  If anything Microsoft handed Apple more customers with is piss-poor attempt at redesigning its OS with the introduction of windows 8, Even gave them most of the holdouts with the recovery attempt that was windows 8.1. I wonder in Windows 10 will get any back?? Nah…  Downloads have started rolling out,  and I have no idea how to get my boy’s computer updated… apparently there is a bit of a wait.

Where am I going with this?    …..I’ll get there I’m sure…

Apple didn’t really make a very strong attempt to capitalize on Microsoft’s stupidity,  In this Guy’s

opinion, Apple had a golden road to domination and should have slashed some prices or introduced an introductory Mac for the new guys. .  Microsoft would have been in a rather rough state.  I know for sure, a lot of people were rather pissed when they installed or bought a new Windows 8 PC.

Ohh the memories …

I remember when I got my first computer, running windows 98,  It was a Compaq Presario – It was amazing! Or was it?..

Suddenly, New worlds were opened up.  I don’t even know how many hours I spent on Yahoo! Chat (don’t tell Ma).  Alas, It did not take long for bad things to start happening…  Suddenly It took a very long time to do, well, anything!!   The hard drive filled with I don’t even know what.  and that classic grinding sound kept getting louder and LOUDER… You know the sound, the hard drive wheels spinning and spinning……and spinning.   I tried to save it by installing Windows ME.  That just made everything worse.  I never realized back then things were primitive still.

I have lost track at how many computers I have gone through in the last 15 years since the ME excursion..  I can say that it is way too many, and that is because (in my opinion) they are built to be replaced and upgraded.  They are designed to fail…designed to keep you upgrading. As a matter of fact, I was in desperate need of an upgrade now….


Solitary Views – Now runs completely with Apple!
Is Apple Taking over the world?
I know that I have always wanted one since their birth, but they always seemed to far away.  The cost of a macbook starts at roughly $1000.  That is a steep price for a vast majorty of people that go it without credit or financing.  Thanks to a very unexpected and amazing from Ma, I will never have to worry about the Windows again!

In fact, I think it is safe to say; that now I have the Macbook… nothing is good enough anymore.  Yes, Yes, It is shallow, But unless it’s apple it’s just not right…

Mac and I have built a wonderful relationship now, most of it just came natural, I am learning to separate myself from the horrible windows era.
