Reminds me of my stock answer when somebody asked if I played an instrument: "yeah, my stereo."

It's all 0's and 1's Snarli, nothing to it at all.

The streaming is pretty cool, too bad its mostly older movies at this stage with netflix. Though thats all I watched when I went to WSB at Miller. Motel TV sux so I just streamed some old flicks and used my blu toof stereo headset to free me from the headphone cable and crappy stock speaker.

I wish for cable a la cart as we finally updated to digital cable and a dreaded box, now we have a couple hundred channels full of nothing to watch. At least the DVR is cool for snagging WRC, Isle of Man, or FIM speedway off HD Theater channel. My old roommate and I did the low tech solution of no cable for 2 years one time, only bought cheap vhs or rented for video entertainment. Got our news off the net so it really wasnt that hard. Well other than no speed TV, that sucked.

Well Ken, I wanted it until 8 mins ago when my daughter called and said someone hit her car in the KSU parking deck and left. I have a $1000 deductible on her car. Sorry, but I'll ask Kristy if she wants it when I see her if you want.

Nah, I'll just send it back to Dull. I wish I could get Elvis the Cat to pee on the packing materials before I send it.

That's funny seeing your post cuz I just got back from the Apple Store where a friend of mine just ditched her Dell.

You can actually walk into a store and speak to a real human being when you need customer service and his name is not Hjohnnieh.

Yeah and we LIKE it that way. If it was easy anybody could do it. You punks just want the whole world handed to you on a silver platter.

Keeps me employed. The thing with the Macs is if you need to fix it, you cant. Well the new IMacs need specialized suction cups to get to the screws that hold the case together. I had a power supply pop on one and if it was a pc I would of grabbed the HD and moved it to a new machine and had the user up in seconds. Instead had to wait 3 days for a tech to show with the magic suction cups. Additionally since they went intel I'm getting more hardware failures. The spinning beach ball of doom is happening on many of my macbook pro's too. They are good for personal or design work but in a microsoft market they dont like to play very well. Sure are pretty though.

I've used pcs and macs and amd and intel and I'm very happy with azus motherboards and amd processors with XP. I don't see the mac advantage of stability to be much of an advantage any more. Certainly not worth the extra $ since my computer does what I want it to do reliably. Now, mention Vista and you have an entire different can of worms.
