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.

Whilst I don't agree with him. The product he bought actually works for him.

Unfortunately you don't seem to get he doesn't give a fuck overall about this shit as long as he can get his work done.

He paid for a machine that worked how he wanted it to.

He didn't pay for something that conformed to some distorted ideologies that are imposed by other people (myself included .. should have stuck with Windows Thom).

I wish more people on here actually decided by actually putting the money where their mouth is.

Ah yeah, just what we need, more brainless idiots throwing their money to corporations and patent trolls.

So that in a few years we get put down by crap like SOPA and more software patents.

Congratulations for being a sheeple and a brainless idiot.

True bit I think what irks might be the disconnect between what he's been saying and what he's now actually done.

"Don't buy Apple products, they're an evil company and a patent troll. Don't support them by buying their products.. etc etc etc"

"Oh, yeah, I got a new Mac today".

....what?

Because he chose a computer that worked for him rather than based on the political winds of that particular moment.
