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.

The thing is, I have the freedom to choose the path I want to take


You certainly do.

In a sense, I have more freedom than I ever had when boycotting.


Well, not really since the boycott was self-imposed. You could stop at any time you wanted.
At any rate, this was all more about Thom's rather adamant "don't support Apple" stance and then buying a Mac. Do what I say not what I do.

Less in my opinion as presumably the boycott was the considered action of a freeman whereas the incoherence of not being able to keep ones opinions for longer than ones whims is not.

Bit like claiming to give up the demon weed only to start toking a couple of days later.
