Yeah cancer affects many millions of people around the world every day. Perhaps Steve or Apple should start supporting cancer research like Lance Armstrong does. (Lance is sponsored by AMD).p0intblank said:I actually forgot all about Steve's surgery until you posted that link. I remember reading about it a while ago, but I wasn't a Mac user back then so it wasn't really a huge deal to me (please don't take that the wrong way). Thank God he is alright, though. It's not everyday you're diagnosed with a rare disease like that one... but all is good now.
Hah, I bet that is the reason indeed.Chundles said:It's a Dell Inspiron 5000 running Windows ME. 64MB shared RAM and a 15 GB HDD. Celeron 633MHz. 14" 1024x768. USB 1.1, VGA out, mono speaker.
Michael Dell sent him one this year and said it was the latest and greatest from their company. This is the reason Steve hasn't throttled the folks at Freescale - he thinks his other laptop (brand new 17" PowerBook) absolutely destroys Dell's best.
Cry myself to sleep every night.Chundles said:Heh, but now what are you going to do without Greenspan?

I was thinking more like, Steve probably has some lackey who just hauls that 17" beast around for him!OutThere said:Come to think of it he probably has one of each, synchronized with eachother, so that he can choose whatever size fits his schedule.
Will the thread be over if, instead of yelling, you sing?katie ta achoo said:*yelling*
I'M A FAST LADY!!
Ah, heat therapy.jsw said:Will the thread be over if, instead of yelling, you sing?
No, wait, I'm not sure the word was "fast"... something close... can't remember...
I'd guess Stevo uses a 15" PB. Sweet spot of size/performance.
As far as the 17" memo... (a) maybe just because he couldn't use a desktop, he used a big PB; (b) maybe heat therapy was required after his surgery; (c) maybe we're all assuming he actually was using it instead of simply saying he was....
Oh, no, I wasn't calling you fat! Just mixing up my sayings. I'd prefer that you remain a fast lady.katie ta achoo said:Ah, heat therapy.
that's what powerbooks are good for.
and who you calling fat?
you are as big as the moon!
and I thought I was taking you to prom! *sobs*
