I love these little debates because ultimately you should use whatever you want use. There truely is no better computer operating system than the one that allows you to do whatever it is that you choose to do with a computer. That said these commercials Mac puts out are absolutely hilarious. I just saw one that suggested someone would be willing to spend $1000 on a new computer rather than upgrade the OS for less $100 on completely good computer but this one is the best…
The thought of company who has itself completed 10 versions of its own computer operating system and gone through 3 completely different hardware processor architectures to achieve its current existence insinuating superiority over a company that is only in the 7th version of its OS on the exact same hardware platform it started on is Laughing My Ass Off funny.
Way to go Apple. Point out the obvious to the intelligent amongst us.
Well the fire alarm went off this morning at @#$%^ AM (aka 5:45) It turns out that a sprinkler was tripped in the room above me which most likely means some douche was smoking in a non-smoking hotel. (It should be noted for all you sympathetic readers to the addicts plight that each room has a private balcony.) Its a good thing I don’t know who that is because today the clocks turned back an hour and I was really looking forward to the extra hour. After collecting the essentials I found the first staircase and made my way to the front of the building. I hear that some people didn’t even get out of bed. (the alarm went off for an hour and its #$%^&* loud). I know that people can get jaded to these kind of events but really people … ITS THE DAMN FIRE ALARM.
All I can remember thinking when I woke up was “spectacles, testicles , wallet and watch” which, if you know me, is the phrase I say anytime I leave my house. It should be noted that all were in different parts of the room. It struck me as funny, later on, that it would be the first thing I thought of when a fire alarm goes off. I suppose its the years of my parents, teachers, bosses and other authority figures drilling into me that keeping a cool head is better than anything else in a potential emergency situation. Had I been in any real danger I would hope I can react the same way though I probably would have either tried to fight the fire (had it been near my room) or have left for breakfast after checking in with the hotel duty manager. Which I am going to do shortly after finishing this post.
One thing to note before the end is that no matter where you are in the world I think its always cold 6AM. Thankfully I left my coat in the trunk of the car. I must remember to put it back there.
