Mac let me count the ways I hate you…

I reference this article on this blog and LA Times, which is so dead on, but that said…

Excerpt of Dan Neil – LA Times Article…

Dan Neil:  “…As an aside: I’m a computer bisexual — I use a Mac at home and a PC at work — and my impression is that you actually have to be a little more on your game, tech-wise, to use a PC. My Macs drive themselves. PC users are the clever ones. That said, the Windows 7 reviews have been extraordinarily effusive and suggest that, on a feature-for-feature, ease-of-use basis, perhaps Microsoft has caught up with Mac.”

As for me personally I am a PC user, only have the Mac to humor my wife.  So many things are stupid proof in Mac that they make some things, stupid.  Case in point, I am trying to move music from a external hard drive to the Mac, it won’t recognize it, because of “PC” formatting.  I have it now moved, thank you Parallels! and lots of duplicate songs.  So I start deleting, oh but wait, just the names were duplicate in itunes and I deleted the actual file.

Problem in windows, go to trash hit restore, Mac, (Lee Corso reference), not so fast my friend!  You can’t you gotta drag’em all back where they go manually!  Really Mac, circa 1981 (we gotta a mouse, we are user friendly), Mac circa 2011, oh wait can’t restore from the trash!  Come on, is it that hard to say windows got that right!

End of Rant, Amen – back to my music/itunes/iphone sync…WOW


Obligatory Will Rogers quotes

Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.

There are 3 kinds of people the one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking spaces.
