#5 Apple Attack

And not the fruit kind. The technological kind. I've been contemplating the new iPhone (and the old one prior to that :P) since I heard Apple was releasing it. I think I'll buy one after I turn 18, and possibly start a plan now that I'll be old enough to actually sign a contract. I've been using pre-paid since I first got a phone, but I guess it depends which will be the less expensive in the long run. My urge to get an iPhone has been spurred on by my current phone crashing every other time I need to send/receive a txt, and also by my almost unconditional love for my iTouch; if only I could call people on it.

On an Apple related note, I think it's possible that I'll get a new laptop for my birthday. I wasn't going to ask for one, the main reason I need a new laptop is cause my wonderful, cheapskate school needs to take this one back once I conclude my education there. Rather annoying, seeing as the 'lease' we've paid over the three years I've had this laptop has covered the price, and more, quite easily.
I'm probably going to get the 13-inch macbook pro. I thought about macbook air, but tons of people turned me from the idea, and it's also really unnecessarily expensive.

*pauses to let the cat in*

Urgh. I'm becoming a Mac person, aren't I? I can't believe I just wrote a whole blog post about it. My past-PC self is kicking me.

The new 13in Mac Book Pros are great. I'll probably pick one up as my new laptop.

“pauses to let the cat in” lol, dunno why but I found that funny, its like the cat crashed your train of thought. Anyway you could strap your iTouch to the back of your existing phone, voila, an iPhone that crashes half as much as a normal iPhone. Too bulky? You could strap it to the back of your cat to create an “iMeow” then set it to play, that way, you can hear it from ages away, even before you start a blog so you’ll know to let it in earlier and it won’t interrupt you :P

I think everyone but teenagers and adult morons are aware Apples products are dodgy and made to look sleek to appeal to said morons who like shiny things.

@anonyous Really? I'm an IT professional and I think they make a lot of great products. Like all things - best tools for the job in hand. In my case I've used an Apple laptop for years - fast, *BSD/Unix, easy to develop on, run all the software I need, and easy to use.

Realistically it's usually morons who make anonymous sweeping generalisations.

Usually Kartar, usually. But in this case, no. Apple's entire marketing plot is aimed at "being simple", how simple do you people need things?
