Apple Not too long ago, I sold my iBook, right after the new MacBook was announced. I planned to buy that same MacBook somewhere this summer; however, I started to doubt. I had second thoughts. Let me explain why I decided to not buy a new Mac, but instead opt for a used G4 PowerMac. Note: After being absent for a week, here is another Sunday Eve Column.

Back in the day, people used to scream how expensive macs were, now they are as cheap as PC's and still as functional them, if not more, and know theres a whole batch of new bitching? it's not open source - to that i say, stop being a cheap a$$, i appreciate the open source movement i do, but what pisses me off about it is people like Thom feeling like free software equals free from cost, so some idiot does all the work for the love of saying look what i can create just like (fill in the blank with named closed source product" in a round about way and give away for free, so now anything that is included in the cost of the machine (namely iLife, et al) that isnt open is bad? GTFOOH!!! Since Apple's resurgence their consumer level apps have been the best of breed and introduced mp3's and managing/buying music/videos to the masses, sorry if that isnt nerdy enough for you, then he closes out by saying he cant afford it anyway, so why complain? Thom, i officially charge you with attention whoring.
