on a side note, does anybody else ever get pissed off at their little finger mouse pad thing when you touch it with two fingers and it sets you back like 5 pages?

I have a 15" PowerBook G4. If I had to choose between saving it or one of you...well, let's just hope for your sake that you can rearrange all my windows at the press of a button.

Heh. Funny story. A couple days ago my brother was taking his G5 off the desk to look at the innards, but didn't notice that one of the dogs was lying down right behind his chair. He took a step back (with the computer in his arms) and tripped over the dog. Rather than sacrificing the computer (or the dog), he sacrificed himself. He let the computer fall down on him and it took a gouge out of his thumb and calf.

If it were a windows pc he woulda let it fall.

Yay for Apple!

I've been a devoted follower... err, user... for almost 3 years now. I'm still using my trusty 1ghz PowerBook Ti, but I'll be switching to a PowerMac dual G5 in about a month.

I have an iMac (bought in Nov. 2000) and an iBook (bought in Nov. 2003). All of my home computers have been Macs.

I will stop using Macs when they pry the last one from my cold, dead fingers. I love these machines!!!

PC > Mac. Always. Although, I must clarify two things.

One, I'm a techie kind of guy. I like to 'play' with my computers. By 'play', I mean having total flexibility in customizing my computers, and that means software AND hardware. Software-wise, Macs are very flexible, no arguement. But hardware-wise, Macs use propietary hardware and it is a bitch to replace them or upgrade them. Doing that is much easier with PCs. Oh, and I HATE the one-button mice - although I'm sure there are two-button mice you can buy for Macs. But the hardware flexibility issue is one of the BIG reasons why I don't use Macs.

Two, I have to give props to Apple for trying(successfully so far I might add) to come up with INNOVATIVE ways to deal with the 21st century music industry(downloading etc) with IPod and ITunes, whereas record companies, the companies that are supposed to be coming up with this stuff, can only come up with TOTALLY UNINNOVATIVE, highly irritating, and comedically ineffective 'copy-control' software which can be gotten around by anyone willing to google it. So BIG props to Apple for what they're doing for music.

I have a 2nd-Generation(I think) 10GB IPod. When the day comes that I actually have some money to spend, I might just get newer one.

As for computers, I have a Gateway Laptop, Windows XP Pro.

Titanium Powerbook user for 3 years. Just got tiger and spotlight is the best addition since expose' to the Mac OSX world. Using a PC drives me crazy now. Everything is easier on a Mac.

I'm getting a Dell laptop the day after tomorrow. I've used Macs a couple times. It's a decent operating system but I have Windows specific software and hardware that I use.
