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.

Not really. Thom's been pretty "anti-corporate" overall, Apple just happens to be extra obnoxious. Most of the bashing is against iOS related things anyway. And also you're confusing a quantitative difference for a qualitative difference.


Uh no actually you seem confused on when to use qualitative and qualitative. There is no reason to use them in this discussion.

If you don't like how a company acts then don't support the company. It really is that simple. Companies live on income and by feeding them you endorse their behavior.

Don't be such a stickler. "Difference by degree" vs. "absolute difference". Better?

Not if there are more important factors. I don't necessarily like the way my government does X, doesn't mean I don't support my government (because of Y, Z, and Q). I think Thom illustrated that is the case very clearly.
