"Do you realize your decisions hurt 3rd party developers?"

So I'm the guy who now says all the stuff about Apple that everyone thinks but no one says. I didn't ask for this, but if that's what fate has dealt me, hey, who am I to question it?

Therefore I'll post questions here demonstrating Apple's problems, such as:

"Do you realize your decisions hurt 3rd party developers?"

Apple doesn't put a bunch of 3rd party apps on the Desktop and around the hard drive before you buy the computer.

This is really bad.

Why? There is a THRIVING market for 3rd party apps in the Windows market for things like PC Decrapifier. If people don't like the apps that get pre-installed on their Dells, all they have to do is know about this program, get online, Google it, download it, install it, run it, and reboot it. They're charging $5 for it, or $20 if you work on computers, like the Geek Squad.

Basically Apple is putting people out of work by not putting this stuff on their computers.

Who's the jackass now?

AOL for Mac is available?!?!

Did you know there's a version of AOL for Mac?!?

Neither did I.

You know why you didn't know that?

Because Apple doesn't pre-install it for you.

Dumb, isn't it?

I mean, I login to a new Mac, and all I have is this giant desktop, and there's NOTHING ON IT. What do I do first? Where am I to start?

Sure there are some apps on the dockamacallit, but I don't know what any of them do. If they were on the Desktop they could have their name right there too, and then you'd know.


I mean what good is a Mac if you can't get on the web? And how are you supposed to do that unless AOL is already on there? Huh? Huh? It's like that chicken that crossed the road to get to its egg except that the egg came before the chicken. Or something.

Whatever. Anyway, you know what I'm saying?

Who You Callin' a Twit?

No one thinks like I do.

You know you want inside my head.

Now you can get there.

Oh You Think You're So Smart

So everyone's giving me shit about the question I asked Steve the other day.

For those who don't know, I wanted to know why Apple doesn't put “Intel Inside” stickers on their laptops.

Steve gave some BS answer about they like their stickers better - BUT THEY DON'T PUT THEIR STICKERS ON EITHER!! Then he said that they think people don't WANT stickers on their computers.

They're overlooking the fact that Intel gives people MONEY to put those stickers on their computers.

Huh, didn't know that, did ya, punks?

Yeah, so now that you know that Steve is leaving all that money on the table, NOW does it seem like such a dumb question?

I didn't think so.

You got a better question to ask? Let me know and maybe I'll ask it next time Steve calls me over. Oh yeah, that happens a lot, you're just jealous because he called on me.

So who's the loser now, eh?
