Ok. I just approached my parents about my decision to buy a Mac. My dad, well, despises Macs, he's worked with PC's for about 20 years now and doesn't really see the point of having one. When I talked to him, he said that almost any job you're going to get is going to run Windows. I countered with the fact that some businesses run on Mac, and it'd be in my best interest to know how to use both. My mom, having no knowledge of computers, had no comment, other than the price tag. Eventually the arguement got worse, so my dad made the final hit and said that he'd ensure that no Mac would ever use his wireless network (he does pay for it). He continued to encrypt our wireless. If this keeps up, then there is no reason I'm going to be able to buy a Mac if i don't have internet, 90% of what I do on the computer is internet stuff. Any ideas to help him open up more? PS: The funniest part of the story was when he handed down his old Dell to me (old, i dont even think it had a model number, manufactured 1999), we took about 10 trips to the Apple store because he was thinking about buying one.
