jobs for knobs.

i think i'm done with apple. i'll continue to eat the fruit, maybe, but after last week's itunes update fiasco, (it took three days, a video card reinstall and two system restores to get my pc working after updating to 9) my ipod getting stolen from work today and having to watch assholes wave their iphones around for the last couple months showing off new, useless applications and shaking their fists around to find something they could've seen had they used their goddamn eyes - i just can't take anymore.

we have macs at work and i am routinely frustrated and confused. are they built for people without common sense and/or computer knowledge? why is everything white and shiny? i don't want to touch a keyboard to right click. i shouldn't have to drag fucking icons all around to mount them or whatever the hell it is that you have to do to install new programs. i'm finished with you, jobs. take all your ingenuity and 'brilliant' technology and get out of my life.

can't we go back? i want to add you on icq, listen to napstered tracks on winamp, call your landline to see if you're home and make eachother mix tapes again. the nineties were so much better than this shit.

it is frustrating and somewhat annoying but for some reason I can't get over the urge to click "like" on this. fucking hell.

btw i use mac and pc depending on where I'm working. so this demonstrates my lack of bias, i guess...

they are both bullocks, in my opinion. each for different reasons.

furthermore macs are made pretty because their target market cares more about image than content. not to say they aren't quality in content, but that is of little importance to the user, the surface of the actual functional differences betwixt mac and pc are barely scraped by the general user.

any mac user will tell you why mac is sooo ooo oo ooo great but really, deep down they just like identifying themselves with the brand identity more than anything. the same reason people will wear sweatshop made adidas but not sweatshop made nikes.

brand loyalty is dumb.
