Apple Marco Arment: "After two years, the Mac Pro was 'updated' today, sort of: now we can choose slightly faster two-year-old CPUs at the top end, and the other two-year-old CPU options are cheaper now. That's about it. No Xeon E5 CPUs, no USB 3, no Thunderbolt. They're even shipping the same two-year-old graphics cards. Same motherboard, slightly different CPU options from 2010. That's it. The message is clear: Apple doesn't give a shit about the Mac Pro." Paint, red, scout, girl.

I know that feeling all too well.
Sometimes I wish I could just be left alone in a room, doing some programming or admin work or something, and not have to deal with the actual users/customers/annoying coworkers.

One can dream.. ;)

We have a lot of traffic in The Netherlands, but when it's a holiday period the roads aren't so busy... yet life goes on. I therefor think most people are actually useless. Get rid of them and we get rid of traffic jams!

Haha, brilliant!

The sad thing is, there is probably a pretty high degree of truth to that.
