I guess that's the sort of post they're stuck with when the APPLE IS DOOOOOOMED! posts aren't working.
Frankly, though, the whole Mac vs. PC religious war has been rendered completely Victorian with the Snowden revelations. The real war is between those who value their individuality and the the government desire to have total dominance.
That's not such a new thing, of course. The government doctored photos and wrote up propaganda with fake data to get the plebs to settle the dust bowl. It's not like the government was the one that suffered from breathing in the dust and starvation. The government poisoned alcohol with methanol and then bootleggers ended up being called our quasi-royal family.
