The cycle continues.

Apple owners piss me off.

They talk for hours upon hours about how their Mac’s are not susceptible to viruses, hackers, crashes and reruns of blossom. Then they think they are ultra-individualist and defying the rules of society itself, because they own a white laptop and use an African vacation for browsing the internet. Then, the nerve of these people, they claim its easy to use, more powerful, the best for media and can make your morning coffee while you oversleep.

BS.

Apple owners go home (and to work) to their Windows computers, browse Microsoft-hosted websites and use Internet Explorer (on bootcamp no less). As they slowly realize to themselves that Macs are utterly useless when playing games, networking, or doing any sort of real work.

However, the prophets at the cult of Apple did get one thing right .. the damned iPod. I remember seeing my brothers lowly 1G white ipod with its turning wheels and bright blue screen. I was at awe .. it did everything you expected with so little buttons. Generation after generation I was hooked to the little bastard as my main source of music while away from my Windows computer .. even my car had ipod integration. Then they release not one .. but two new ipods today, the ultra tiny mini .. which puts the past two iterations to shame. And the fabled touch iPod with browsing and calendar capabilities.. I must have one.

Now, I don’t really need the new ipod touch (or nano for that). My current two ipods do a fine job (somewhat) of playing my Nina Simone tunes while assholes in leased envoys cut me off. But, I want one .. I need the new ipod .. I slowly lie to myself explaining how the next ipod will change my life for the better. This is the thing holding me between the drudgeries of a repetitive life and paradise. I will wake up in the morning to birds chirping at my window, my servers at work won’t crash anymore and the asshole in the leased envoy will learn to stay in his lane; sweet sweet lies.

So here I am at my computer into the first minutes of the (urs) day, viewing my cart at the Apple Store wondering if I should push the button. While the Sugababes song plays non-climatically in the background .. my mother walks in and asks for the red thing, she wants to help the Product Red foundation and their cause to rid the world of Aids. As I realize that her personal lies are just as imaginative as mine, I push confirm and place the order for yet another iPod(s).

    You are just plain PATHETIC !!! your loyalty to Microshit just brain washed you against any other company or OS out there . your brain just stopped thinking when it comes to expanding into the technology world and look for other sources rather than sticking to one shitty OS and System .

    Intelligent people tend to broad their thinking and education rather than being stuck into one world ( Oh since microsoft rules , all other companies are just crap) ( Oh I’m so intelligent I know everything , what I say is the only thing thats right, everyone else can kiss my ass) SHUUUUUUUUT UUUUUUUUUP!!!!!!!!! .. People like you just make me sick. Poeple like you is the main reason we are so behind in this part of the world !

    For you own information (if you really have any That matters) Apple and their OS is one of the best OS’s and hardware out there, All MS OS’s and software can KISS APPLE’s ASS from now till eternity including YOU . You are the best example of stupid Micosoft products that talks too much and does too little while currupting every now and then and forcing us to waist alot of time,effort and money to fix and upgrade. What you need to do is to layoff and SHUT YOUR CRAP UP .

  7. “playing my Nina Simone tunes ”

    That was the scariest $%%^&^* part of this whole article.

    K: Nina Simone and an iPod? When are you going to buy your black beret, string of onions, and a black and white striped long sleeved shirt? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yet again .. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Blue Dress:
    Its similar, the nokia disease is far worse .. they release a phone every 3.5days, while your old phone vanishes into thin air taking along your contacts and sms messages.

    Baroque:
    I wrote the post after watching ‘deathproof’ .. the movie does strange things to people.

    Mo Hat:
    OMG YEAH! THE DOOR WAS LIKE UNLOCKED AND EVERYTHING

    chikapappi:
    You can’t help yourself .. however, you are a little warm inside when you know the next ipod won’t be out for at least a year.

    G-Child:
    I take it you like Apples?
    For the record, I hate Microsoft as much as the next person .. I spend a good 30% of my time fixing/patching issues. Stop taking things you read on the internet too seriously. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    amer:
    What .. you don’t like Nina! Sinnerman! Mood Indigo!

    shopa:
    If it came in a needle it would be illegal.

    michael:
    That either a black panther or a mime.. I suppose i couldn’t be either, I am not black and enjoy talking way too much.

    DLC:
    You don’t sell old ipods .. the battery dies and the harddrive fails.

  12. ha ha that was me in the Envoy!

    nibaq:
    Just wait until I get the iPod touch ..

  14. @K: Linux is the future..:) Give *buntu a try!

    @G-Child: Try installing MAC OS on any non-apple box.

    Unix/Linux/FreeBSD is great .. you just need to have the skills of a wizard ninja to get everything working seamlessly. I would rolled out ubuntu at work if it weren’t for the specific applications that only run on windows.

    You know that’s all true! ๐Ÿ™‚ Seems like you’re grabbing at straws to put us Mac users down, but we WILL PREVAIL! Even if we don’t have right click, maximize window, resize window from edges, DirectX, Office 2007… uh..damn..

    I think your being too harsh .. Mac users have right click, maybe. ๐Ÿ˜›

    sorry for cutting you up in my leased Envoy

    but I’m doing it while listening to Don’t Explain, Ne me quitte pas, Black Is The Color Of My True Love’s Hair… and Sinnerman.

    please don’t blame me for driving erratically with the last one… you know how it goes.

    k: I’m actually calling you French. Sort of. In a very stereotypical sort of way. You’re an “artiste”! . . . So is Nina Simone actually good?

  21. Hmmmmmmmmmmm. . . . somebody sounds . . . . J E A L O U S ! ! ! Ah, c’mon, K – join the winning side. You KNOW you want to!

  22. @K: awww..cmon join the K club…use Kubuntu I mean ๐Ÿ™‚

    Allah ya3afeech! .. Goolay ilsij, taboon itjarboon feeni awal .. ๐Ÿ˜›

    In all honesty .. I don’t feel bad about getting apple stuff the day after its released .. the price won’t drop for a long time, the product itself will remain current for the next year or two.

    moocherx:
    I bet you and nibaq are the same people that cut in front and block the view on U-Turns, bastard! Oh, Sinnerman where you gunna run to?

    Michael:
    Thanks .. Some might say that the French have lost their claims to being the artists of the world. Nina Simone is unbelievably good .. it all depends if your into that sort of music tho.

    DA:
    If you feel like rewriting our applications to work in Kubuntu .. I will gladly switch tomorrow!

  24. @K: name’em…:)

  25. You know that you’re freaking me out! Because that is exactly what’s in my Apple Store Shopping Cart!

    RED Nano and iPod Touch 16GB sad to say that Touch won’t be available until the 28th ๐Ÿ™

  26. K, you can write! First off all, let me say that you got a lot more of my respect for approving G-Child’s post (that actually made me lose some of my loyalty to Mac). I’m a half and half. Typing this post on a Thinkpad and have a macbook pro as a weekend car. I have the same sickness you have towards the new ipod but for macbook pros! I couldn’t live without the LED screen and 8600GT video card (which I’ll probably never use at full speed).

  27. One more thing. If you ever plan on buying an iphone, wait for it to be officially unlocked. Otherwise, the iPod touch is a great temporary solution. It also has wifi and an african holiday ๐Ÿ˜› Oh, and G-Child is actually Steve Jobbs.

    Visual Basic. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Jacqui:
    What are you talking about .. this is a picture of your cart.

    MYK:
    Thanks, I believe inside every blogger is a failed writer. I think macbooks are great computers .. I am personally hooked on the pc aspect of computing. As for the iphone, already got it and activated. And G-Child isn’t Steve Jobs .. I believe Steve is much more relaxed.

    Crap. Yeah, I’m the one who cuts in on the U-turns (esp. Belajat st.).
    But the Lord said, go to the devil…. so I’m only following orders.

  30. 30 ElMoz

    somehow , I feel exactly the same thing!

  31. No my shopping cart is a secret ๐Ÿ˜›

  32. 32 ob1=w@n

    Yeah, i’d kill for one also. I had the 2nd generation ipod. They said the battery would last only for 18 months but mine lasted for 2 years, 4 months.

    Anyway, I have an Aramex mailbox but does the Apple store accept credit cards with Kuwait billing address?

  33. 33 k

    moocherx:
    Its all because of you, that said .. foreigners need to stop complaining about crazy Kuwait drivers.

    ElMoz:
    About the iPod touch or that apple users can’t shut up?

    Jacqui:
    Nothing is a secret online.

    ob1=w@n:
    I guess it depends on usage .. my 4g ipod just gave up a couple days after the warranty. I use a American CC with my aramex address .. the kuwaiti one *might* work.

  34. Well damn..there you go off again. Hey I like Nina Simone.

    Also, back when I had my Apple PB I didn’t go home to my MS machine, didn’t even have one..nor at work. And besides, I managed to crash mine several times. Don’t ask me how. Tell the die-hard Apple junkies to go choke on something unnamed.

    I feel so left out, I never owned an ipod…am I missing much? I don’t like ipods anyway.

    ob1=w@n = Only American CC’s and/or British CC’s are allowed. Unless you have the AMEX card, that works.

    I’m still bored.

    รยฏ:
    I think a post a week pissing off a large group of people or company should be the norm.

    Apple’s crash .. say it ain’t so! Well .. I am personally a materialistic music junkie, the ability to say that I have 20,000 songs in my pocket is much better than I actually listening to them

  36. 36 Daddyz Girl

    Hey K,
    I had exactly the same apple cart 5 days back, but additional to it i had the 8GB iphone, but sadly i had to cancel my order , cuz my stupid burqan visa didnรขโ‚ฌโ„ขt go through !! i think i was supposed to add my aremex address as my billing & shipping.

    plus I love Nina Simone as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

  37. 37 k

    Daddyz Girl:
    Ma yighla 3alaich ..

    Did you try ordering through a UshopWeship address? I have heard that those work when aramex doesn’t go though. And finally .. someone who appreciates Mrs. Sinnerman.

  38. 38 Daddyz Girl

    Thanx dude ๐Ÿ˜‰

    im gonna try it out right now, but what abt q8 customs u think it will go through without hassle ?

  39. 39 k

    Daddyz Girl:
    I don’t see why not .. your not getting anything prohibited, its just a phone and a mp3 player.
