The Mac is a ****ing joke. That's not even brute force hacking; that's
temper tantrum hacking. Anyone defending the platform is an idiot.

Yeah, it's not like every windows computer has a rin -3 vulnerability
built in that give anyone access to the computer, the hardware, andthe
firmware.

Oh, wait...

Nobody said that Windows is better. If anything, Linux is the only one
that's truly any good when it comes to security. However, with
sandboxed apps, a built-in anti-virus, UAC and SmartScreen in the
browser, it's making more of an effort than Apple is IMO. Security
experts have already stated that most of the Windows issues would be
remedied by making it harder to obtain administrative rights and that
simply means tweaking UAC. If people needed to do more than just press
OK when something wants to install itself covertly, Microsoft could
solve a lot of problems.

Also, say what you will about forced updates but they're a good thing
considering how many stupid, stupid people still exist. While most of
us know how important it is to update, the majorty believes that their
time is too precious and the end result is that the rest of the world
has to suffer for their laziness.

Even during the 1980s, you had to be a complete moron to buy a
computer which couldn't be upgraded, had a tiny monochrome screen,
couldn't multitask and cost a fortune when the competition sold the
same kind of machine with more RAM, colour, a larger screen and
limited upgradeability (Apple vs. Atari). I really feel sorry for Mac
users and hope that they'll find a cure for their mental illness soon.

This is a big ask. Mac users and Linux users can never change their
habits even if their machine can't do the things that modern computer
users need. This is mostly true with Linux users who needs an excuse not
to do something useful by simply saying "This can't be done in Linux".
You need Windows. They keep telling us that super computer users are
using Linux so it must be good; How many users actually need Super
Computers for day to day work? They can't answer this. Hey, leave them
alone and let them remain stupid until they realise the world has moved
and they have remained behind so it is time to go to Taliban caves and
become terrorists.

You're too kind :-)

I bought an iMac to get stuff done when my time was money - something
that was becoming increasingly difficult on Windows machines. Also, at
the time (2008), iMac's were one of the few near-silent reasonably
powerful PCs available for something approaching reasonable money.

While I do have Windows PCs they rarely get used - rarely see the need.

**** off.


My tenant asked me to fix her Macbook Air which has the 3 beep
problem, bad ram. Apparently this is very common on the Macbook Air.
When I took it apart I was amazed at how cheaply it was made. The RAM
is soldered directly onto the logic board. So you can't upgrade it,
change it, replace it, fix it, or remove it. So much for the Mac being
any type of superior product. Macs requires premium prices when you
buy but they are built with the cheapest lowgrade parts. Older PCs can
be fixed or upgraded easily but the Mac is a throwaway if anything
goes wrong. Mac users are suckers if they think what they are buying
is a quality product.

The word "power" and Macs do not go together. My mom has a fairly
recent Mac Mini and even with 8GB of RAM, that thing is so sluggish
that it's embarrassing. I imagine the fact that Apple is cheap enough
to continue selling that hardware with HDs in an era when everyone
else has at least an SSD/HD hybrid is a part of it and no, it's not up
to my parents to shell out _more_ money to remedy Apple's decision.
