Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

I understand very well how a boycott works, but I'm no community organizer. I don't even know 100 people, let alone 100,000. Even if I called/emailed everyone in my contact list, all 40 people I know on Facebook and Google+, tweeted to my 20 or so followers on Twitter, and took to the streets of my suburban city shouting and holding up a sign that said "don't buy Brand X!" I would change maybe one or two minds. I would also promptly lose friends and contacts and maybe even be arrested and subsequently unemployed.

Sorry but you've got the wrong guy for the job.
