“We’ve all been there,” KKTV reports. “You get so frustrated with your computer, you just feel like you want to do some damage.”
MacDailyNews Take: No, we haven’t all been there. Some of us have no idea what you’re talking about because we haven’t settled for crappy Windows PCs that cost us far more in wasted time and money (anti-virus, periodic wipe/rebuilds), Geek Squad visits and whatever other assorted stupidity you Windows sufferers inflict upon yourselves) and frustration (see the rest of this article) in order to “save” ourselves a couple of bucks upfront. People who understand TCO are significantly smarter than those who can only see price tags.
“One guy who helps run a specialty store in Old Colorado City did it. He shot it up, Monday night,” KKTV reports. “At Organica Herb, they have thousands of jars of tea, medicinal, calming- so it was out of character when Lucas Hinch was out of patience. He let loose 8 rounds right into his doomed Dell PC.”
MacDailyNews Take: Gives additional meaning to “shooting the shit.”
“We asked Hinch if he had any regrets. He told us, ‘yes, this wasn’t the right thing to do,'” KKTV reports. “Lucas says if he ever does anything like this again, he’ll do it somewhere where it’s legal. He’s a strong supporter of gun rights, but he acknowledges, you can’t just shoot something in the city limits. So what happens to him now? First of all, the police took his gun, for now. He has a summons to appear in court, and then he’ll find out about a possible fine.”

MacDailyNews Take: Don’t shoot your crappy Windows PC. It’s not worth the ammunition. Take that piece of garbage to Apple and get yourself a real Mac, like a smart person.
You can get credit from Apple for your PCs from other manufacturers. Even if your equipment isn’t functional or doesn’t have any value, you can at least recycle your iPad, iPod, Mac, PC or smartphone responsibly through Apple for free. More info here.
