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.

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.

When will people learn and stop liking what you don't like, right?

You know what I can't understand? People like you.

Certainly, you are entitled to your opinion. You can hate Apple for whatever reasons you feel are justified but it doesn't make sense for you to hate me because I happen to like Apple. You can tell me the reasons you have for having your opinion but telling me I'm stupid because I disagree with you is close-minded and intolerant.

If you carefully read what he wrote you'll find he doesn't say much and what he says doesn't make much sense. You'll find more people in this comment section that do mindless hating, he just uses a lot more words.

But he can have the ZX80, I'll take the Mac Pro.
