    Link: I Think I Might Be Mac-Curious
    Description:: Martin Sargent has always been a diehard PC guy. But ever since this year’s MacWorld Expo in San Francisco, he's been feeling kind of funny inside. Different. To put it bluntly, he can’t stop thinking about getting my hands on a Mac

    Yeah it works.

    But I think it's funny how the guy says, "Macs aren’t looked down upon anymore, the way they were during the days of the Lisa". While the Mac and the Lisa did coexist for a time, the Lisa came out first. So it's funny to say that Macs were looked down upon "during the days of the Lisa", because for a a year during the days of the Lisa, the Mac wasn't even released.

    Who cares what Martin likes or want. If he's hard up for one then he should just put himself out of his pain and buy one.

    I don't think it's that bad. It's not meant to be factually correct - just a humorous piece on being smitten from a PC'ers POV. Gave me a good chuckle and reminded me of the time I was a naive but in love. My first was a beautiful graphite G4 tower at university.

    What's most interesting is the feedback - especially the few negative posts, and the small number of vitriolic negative posts that promote Windows.

    Article = Rubbish There was one thing tho. . .

    I did notice, while perusing the comments after the article, that some dipshit decided that it would be great to revive the "Security through Obscurity" argument that I thought died years ago. Funny how people will say that until their tongues are cut out by German BND agents when you are talking about your mac, but they shut the hell up when aomeone mentions a IIS server as opposed to an Apache. Funny indeed.

    I, too, enjoyed it. I especially liked the Brokeback Mountain reference.

    Personally, I can't stand how often stories from Macsimum News are linked--some of their articles are good, but the vast majority are poorly thought-out and written even worse. I feel like I've wasted part of my life every time I accidently click on a Macsimum News link.

    But I guess different people are interested in different types of articles/blogs/etc. concerning Apple and Macs, so I welcome the variety.

    The coffee shop incident was funny. I didn't mind reading it, but I'm always up for reading about switchers or potential switchers.

    I thought it was funny.

    It reminded me of when I first started reading literature. I would walk through the aisles of the bookshop, dart down the one labelled "Serious Fiction", quickly grab a Gabriel Garcia Marquez or Heinrich Boll, and carry it in the middle of a pile of Tom Clancy or Michael Crichton in the hope that no one would notice. There was always a bit of embarrassment at the checkout, but I learned to vary the bookshops I visited or go to the larger ones where the staff turnover would be higher. I don't know what people in small towns do.

    I got bolder though, and now carry my serious fiction in the open.

    It's a cute story. Yeah, it sounds like me using OS X for the first time. Now it's ALL the time. :cool:
