My friend runs them both on his Mac....it's kind of earthshattering to watch at first, but they seem to both work correctly and such.

I'm watching that Batman: Gotham Knight vid right now, and it's pretty cool so far. Deadshot's turned up! Deadshot!

The animation's really slick, most of the stories are cool, and it's always good hearing Kevin Conroy as Batman.

Thanks, Ax. After seeing Hardy's score, I expected lower.

She actually wanted to get me one for last Christmas but a digital camera was higher on my priorities then.

But I have no idea what I want. I think I'd prefer a Windows, but XP, not Vista. Vista can go fuck itself. I find XP easier to use and more user-friendly for what I do than Mac OS X, though it may just be what I'm comfortable with.
XP >>> Vista. Everyone knows it, though.

I'm not at all familiar with Macs, except from occasional use in elementary school.

Dan Uggla, that is, and he plays second for Florida. Chase Utley would kick his ass in a fight, though.

That's how I feel about my DI3 list, actually. Great songs were used in the wrong way. I don't want to say "wasted", but they weren't to their full potential, you know? I kind of feel the same way about my DI4 list - it's good, but isn't too memorable.

The Alternative list has its share of fun, but it was also a cool creative exercise, too. My one goal is to never come across as pretentious with a list, hopefully I haven't yet.
Yeah, it's not wasted. It's just, I feel like I could use it much better now, with more experience and more music.

Because, like, some people don't care for them and stuff.

This forum makes me hate them more each day, and I liked Viva La Vida.
I heard Viva La Vida, the song, for the first time today. Or, I think it was. Is it just Martin singing over a string section?

Having programs like Photoshop, MS Office, Firefox, iTunes, etc... work on it really help.
I've never used Photoshop, I've never had it. I imagine that would be fun and useful.

i personally think macs are really easy to use and get used to. but i'm sure it's mostly because i grew up using them in school, so i was already used to them.

There are definitely more irritating Mac owners out there. And I don't feel the need to punch you in the face like I do Dodgeball-whatshisface-Maccommercial Guy. So, no you aren't coming off as one of those, at least to me.

Sounds like it could have been just about any Coldplay song.

Photoshop is awesome and you can do pretty much any type of photo alteration/manipulation with it. I know the basics, but that's about it.

I know a few Macs Are God types. It's quite annoying, as well as pretentious, which is quickly becoming the word of the evening, for me.

Dude, I just bought that yesterday. Was it worth the 14 bucks?

Oh man, it's like a cult.

My ease with a Mac is probably a split between the improved memory and the operating system. I would've probably stayed with Windows if I didn't love Final Cut so much.
