    Word of caution... People around here hate calling a Mac a MAC. So calling it an IMAC would probably push them over the edge. :rolleyes:

    You do realize that macs can use multi-button mice just as well as PCs, right?

    You've seen the messageboard clientele. Windows H4x0rZ. Like they care?

    I'd not buy anything from there on principle, man.

    This shirt is bad on so many levels. I think 'fugly' is being kind Abstract :rolleyes:.

    Homie - don't buy this shirt.

    Has anyone read the comments on that site? Either everyone that posts on that site is 13 and under or they hate Macs cause they can't hack them. I like all of their criticisms, like "Macs suck!". Nice argument, I think your recess is over now. :rolleyes:

    This is silly. People mock the things they don't understand. Most people..adults...I talk to about Apple computers assume that they can't really do anything except kids stuff, internet and e-mail and maybe...maybe professional graphics and editing but certainly not anything business. They seemed shocked to find out that I have MS Office and can access my companies network from home and on and on and on.

    I hate to say it, but it is purely poor marketing that has caused this.

    Am I the only one who sees this as a pro-Mac shirt?
    Kinda cute if you ask me. I might get one.

    Oh yes, and the people are that site are IDIOTS.

    Is that in reference to In living colour ? otherwise I don't really get that phrase, I get the point just not the phrase.

    Gosh, it's just [font color=green]green[/font]. I think it looks pretty cool. $7 for shipping is a little much though.

    I don't see what's so great about this shirt. After all, us Mac users have the option of Control-clicking or using a third-party two button mouse if we need contextual menus.

    I don't think he would buy the shirt, since Apple HQ surely has shirts that Apple Marketing likes more.

    Guys, lighten up. Its a fun shirt. No one said that Macs don't support multibutton mice. Someone was trying to be creative.

    Ditch the Stars

    Huh - I take it as a pro-Mac shirt, too. But I'm a supporter of the one-button mouse. I guess I'd read it differently if I used a multi-button on my Mac.

    Personally, I think the motto is great (as a pro-Mac shirt). Too bad they went with the cheesy stars and stuff. Avery and I might have to steal the motto and fix up the look. ;)
