Natalie Portman is now hotter than ever, because of this SNL skit. Is the ability to take oneself not at all seriously an incredibly sexy attribute? Yes; but it also helps if you hit an SNL cast member with a chair. HAWT.
Is it just me, or is the Mac market share steadily inflating? Analysts will probably say it's just me, but I can see it around me. Iain got an iBook a few years ago, then Chris W., Alex and Jeff got a Mac Mini, then the Dixons bought one from me. Scott Kurtz at PvP switched. Now as I watch, the boys from Penny Arcade find themselves swirling deeper and deeper into Macdom. This digital culture that has been created by Steve Jobs, of iPods and smooth lines and easy creativity software, it's spreading. I like it.

It never ceases to amaze me what an extraordinary effort some people go through to dislike Apple products. Tycho was talking the other day about this torture cycle that Windows users go through out of some ridiculous compulsion to be a mainstream computer user and not some Mac-using hippie.
Administrating a network of Windows computers as part of my job has fully affirmed my opinion that Mac OS X is indeed much more powerful, more stable, and more usable than Windows XP. I find it utterly baffling that the average computer user insists on using Windows religiously and bashing Apple on a regular basis, then turns around and mutters about some computer problem they're having due to some ridiculous Windows deficiency.
Unless it's my job, the next time a Windows user asks me to solve their computer problem I'll tell them, "Get a GOD-DAMN Mac you homophobe! That'll solve your problem just fine."
That's twelve years of pent-up Mac-rage. This is our moment, and I'm gonna have it God-dammit.Posted on March 8, 2006 08:44 PM
