  1. Why does iPad rhyme with “I sad?”

    Because for once in my entire Apple using life I’m not turned on by their latest gadget?

    I’m obviously having Apple withdrawal symptoms, I don’t even look at Mac’s in the same love light anymore as I half expect them to turn into iOS devices at any moment.

    I keep posting here to find a solution to my problem, from my Mac using community, but unable to find a like mind.

    I realise now I have a problem, and perhaps that’s half the solution.

    Apple is morphing into god knows what and I don’t know what to do. Steve Jobs has betrayed me, the entire Mac community, which kept the company alive all those years.

    Hard to change, all those years with Apple Computer Inc.

    Why do I smell a troll. Have you considered that the problem might be your own stupidity?

    The Mac will always remain a distinct line from iOS devices simply because they’re designed to meet different objectives & do different tasks. 

    Play with your Linux hardware all you like, it won’t amount to a pimple on most user’s backside which is where I suspect you’ll end up given your retardedness with Linux.

  3. “you need to smoke more dope, and the depression will go away”

    Dope just delays the problem, not cures it.

    If you do enough dope, then you got a addiction to solve as well.

    No, I’ve found my netbook solution with Linux instead of the iPad, just sad it’s not a Apple netbook. Of course I bought it before Apple realised their marketing mistake and offered a 11″ MacBook Air. So now I’m stuck with Linux unfortunately, but at least I don’t have a painful annoying glossy screen.

    Why does Apple offer so little in hardware choices?

    My MacBook Pro runs just fine of course, getting long in the tooth…and the new black chick-let style keyboard looks cheap, I like the old silver keys better.

  4. Bunches of Munches is either a paid troll, making a great effort to show how disappointing it is to be an Apple user, or simply the biggest whiner on earth. Geez if you are really so bummed out about Apple, simply move on and quit wasting your time here. The little black raincloud following you around is a blight.

    If I wanted credibility I would run my own ThinkSecret.

    No, MDN lets me post on and off again to get you all worked up and posting if it’s slow around here.

    Paid troll? I wish MDN would, but then I would have to be like ZuneTang and tailor my content.

    Nope, free wheeling creative trolling, it’s the best.

  6. @BofM
    MDN wouldn’t be paying you, you doofus. Try any one of a number of Apple competitors. It’s called gorilla marketing; serving up FUD on fan sites like MDN. And, PS, you couldn’t carry Zune Tang’s water. You obviously know Apple products, and you obviously know a good deal about computing (your average Mac user is not sniffing port usage), but your continuing negative spin is too over the top to be an Apple fan. I can’t believe anyone would waste their time to post “Debbie Downer” missives at MDN with your new regularity if there wasn’t an ulterior motive.

  7. @ Bunches of Munches

    Must really suck to be an Apple-hatin’ troll these days, isn’t it? Do you long for good ole days of the mid-90’s? LOL

    Resistance is futile. Waste away your time all you want. Think about it. If you live to be 80 years old, that only works out to only a little over 2.5 billion seconds. But if wasting away those precious seconds is what you get off on, go ahead and enjoy being bitter and frustrated by Apple’s success!
