Apple We already talked about iOS 7 yesterday (after a night of sleep, it's only looking worse and worse - look at this, for Fiona's sake!), so now it's time to talk about the downright stunning and belly flutters-inducing new Mac Pro. As former owner and huge, huge, huge fan of the PowerMac G4 Cube - I haven't been this excited about an Apple product since, well, I would say the iMac G4. This is the Apple I used to love.

Really, you think a five dollar Walmart trash can is sexy?

sure, if it has the same "junk" inside that this has :}

What makes it sexy to me is the size, simplicity, and uniqueness of the design. Blame it on IBM for producing such an ugly machine trend. There were some partially stylish computers before the world embraced the pc.

Because when I think stylish, I think the Zed-Ex 80, Commodore PET, Atari 400, and the Trash-80's ... RIGHT. Even the C64 is one serious fist-in the face full of ugliness.

... and of course PC's built in modern cases like the Thermaltake Element, Corsair Carbide and Raidmax Atlas are so boring and lacking in style... RIGHT.

Hell, I'd stack a crappy $35 HEC Compucase against this thing in both style and functionality... especially the latter. You want to throw money away on sexy AND functional, that's an Antec 1200's job.

I really don't get the people ooh-ing and aah-ing over this hunk of junk with all the art and style of a bargain basement space heater... but then I never got people ooh-ing and aah-ing over the past couple generations of Apple products either, having all the art and style of a recently sanitized hospital ward... or all the wild BULLSHIT claims of some sort of 'quality' to their products. You figure in Crapple's sleazeball shortcut form over function engineering, and I cannot fathom how anyone is dumb enough to pay money for these things.

Which if you told anyone who knew me that I was underestimating the stupidity of my fellow man, they wouldn't believe you.
