Apple f***ing sucks - Page 21

post #301 of 397
I think a lot of the people who bitch about the evils of Windows have not used it since Win95 or something. All the common OSs people use today (Windows, OSX, Linux) perform problem-free for ordinary everyday tasks.

I haven't read the whole thread.

But has anyone read my thread on Dell service.

Perhaps they are all bad but I think Dell is the worst. The market is speaking and Dell is rapidly losing market share.

What did people do before the telephone was invented?

2. click the remove hardware icon 3. Select the drive from the list Done. Very functional.
FTFY You must have it set to hide your notifications or something lame. I don't. When I have a USB drive plugged in, the remove hardware icon is not hidden, only the inactive icons are. I just did it and I count it as two clicks, not five. If you really don't believe me, I can video it for you later.

You should try it more often if you are into functionality.
MacOS is a pain in my ass. It is like driving a car without a steering wheel. To turn left, look left, to turn right, hit open apple R and look left. Wait... WHAT?

Yeah, I'm a total moran.

My point is that it wasn't intuitive and I didn't enjoy it (hence the failed experiment comment). I put my money where my mouth is (so to speak) and when building a new computer I chose components that were OS X compatible specifically so I could try out a Mac. And yes, I have used a real Apple computer and there was nothing broken about my computer. Everything worked as it should - Bonjour, Time Machine, sleep (all common complaints when building a hack).

Good thing you can also right click and eject devices or delete files that way if it's too hard to figure out the dragging technique.

Yeah? Tell that to my father. Again, obviously not intuitive when he had to call me up so I could tell him that. FWIW he's an intelligent man with a successful business. The "intuitive Apple OS" is aimed at people like him who are not computer savvy and didn't grow up with them or have to use them.

Here's an example of functionality/intuitiveness: I installed Snow Leopard tonight and when I opened Mail for the first time, I entered my email address and password and it went out and found the exchange server and auto synched my mail, contacts, and calendar with three different programs, two of which weren't even open.

I admit that this is useful functionality. MS would probably be hit with another antitrust suit if they implemented this though.

That's how it works on Vista for me. I have Vista on my desktop and Win 7 on my laptop.

You forgot the first part about having to open explorer. If only the drive just appeared on the desktop.

It's just an alternate option. One I'm pretty sure most people don't use.

I'm not trying to pick a fight and say Macs are better, but it's obvious that some of you guys rail on Macs and don't even (want to) know how they operate. No better than the Mac evangelists...

Good luck with this thread.

Again, I went out of my way to try. Certain hardware components were chosen specifically because I could use them to build an OS X compatible machine rather than just running it in VMWare or something.

I bought an Apple today. I fucked the disk drive and made that prim little bitch call me daddy. Apple never shocks my cock, can PC say the same?

Your apple disk drive is lying to you, but we've been over this.

Of course not. She's also fudging the numbers of guys she's been with using her base 10 multiplier.

If she says she's only been with 1,000,000 guys, she's really been with 1,048,576. Bitch.

For example, Apple users are quick to blame Microsoft programmers for making insecure software that are conducive to security faults, and they also like to bring up the issue viruses (mostly Spyware and Adware) on their old PCs (see a few posts above). What they fail to point out is that malware is mostly installed due to careless users downloading random crap or opening stupid links. Dealing with viruses should be more about proactive actions (being smarter and avoiding fishy websites), rather than reactive actions (buying a mac).

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with macs. I just can't stand the false preaching that Apple evangelists spew when I meet them.

It sort of sounds like you assume I am slamming MS and supporting Apple. . . is that what you think?

I was just voicing support for the other poster, are you feeling defensive?

How'd the talking computer work out? Edit: I is confused

This confusion makes no sense...

Is that poltergeist slain, btw?

The talking computer story is likely not a virus. It's probably a trojan or malware.
