I have to admit, back about 6 years I really fell in love with Apple, but over the years I've grown to really dislike them more and more. I'm really looking forward to seeing the new Microsoft tablet coming out later this year.


But only a few hipsters will buy it

The bigger the company the more evil it is. This is an eternal and universal truth. As Apple and Google's brands surpassed MS's, the latter suddenly seemed less evil.

Edit: the only exception is Sony, who's always evil no matter what


MS is bigger than google.

But Apple is now worth more than Google and Microsoft Combined.

Those stats are always changing though, but the difference between MS and Goggle is less than the difference between MS+Google and Apple.

Today:

Apple ~568.61B

MS ~269.51B

Google ~210.82B


Wow, google has almost caught up to mr softy

Exactly, and there aren't too many millions of them around. What is a tecnorati anyway?

People who are technology experts. You know, journalist, engineers, reviewers and stuff. Those are the people who see how much functionalty there is in win 8. Ive tried the consumer preview and theres a learning curve. but once you master it. You'll think android and iOS were useless.



Yay!!!

Gotta love it. MS were, are and always will be evil, but because Google and Apple are more evil then MS are now good.

Slightly evil is the new good. Oh how our moral compass has been derranged.

KDC is out on bail here in NZ and hasn't been convicted of anything that earned him 10 years in prison. Though if he gets found guilty of copyright breaches the US gov is accusing him of now he might face 50 years. The only thing standing between him and kangaroo court in the USA is New Zealand's judiciary deciding whether the alleged offences are extraditable or not.

I don't know of any murderers who only got 5 years in prison. Wrongful death, manslaughter, assisted suicide of terminal patients, yeah a lot of them get <5 years, but murderers typically get 15 to life first time up.

Now, KDC facing 50 years in prison vs. some finance company directors who were "untruthful" (i.e. didn't lie but failed to tell the whole truth to their investors) and cost thousands of people their life savings getting community service, that's some twisted moral compass right there.

I like Microsoft because of Bill Gates. The man's alllllllllright.



I was walking down along the street and I heard this voice saying, "Good evening, Mr. Dowd." Well, I turned around and here was this big six-foot rabbit leaning up against a lamp-post. Well, I thought nothing of that because when you've lived in a town as long as I've lived in this one, you get used to the fact that everybody knows your name.
