iMac - OhMac!

Major mid-life crises need major retail therpay. 24" iMacs for example. Actually not all that expensive, when you consider it's only a little more than twice the price of the T3 Palm I bought 4 years ago and hardly ever used. (Because it's... not a phone.)

But the "just plug it in and it just works" hype? "Just works" indeed, barely. Just 100% bullshit. I'm calling it the iSOB for the moment. (iCRY, iSonOfBitch, however you want to interpret that.)


It's too late to blog about the iSOB tonight because a) I need sleep and b) it's too complicated.

Suffice it to say I have managed to lock up the beast five times already in the first 24 hours of use - twice it frooze so bad I had to remove the power cable to turn it off...

And man, where the fuck is the Right Mouse Button! That's just so missing!

iTunes? Fucked already, only half my songs went across.

iPhoto? (There are meant to be clever photos with witty comments accompanying this post. Do you think I could get the iSOB to read the SD card from my camera? Do you think I could EJECT the SD disc from the iSOB?) Fucked already, LESS than half my pictures went across.

iPhone? DO NOT PLUG A HIJACKED iPHONE IN! Smoke and fumes!

More from the frontiers of technological frustration at a later date and an earlier hour, hopefully.


p.s. 5 stars for the display though! Porn looks immense on this mutha of a monitor! Not that I look at porn... well not until after I managed to get all those WMV files to run under QuickTime.

Right mouse button - use Control-Click

Keyboard? What's that?

I'm trying to convince myself to buy an asus eee. Don't want personal stuff on my work PC and want something light with a keyboard. maybe next month. The iphone looks too tricky, too many things that can go wrong - the multimedia version of the combined fax, printer and photocopier (when it's broken you lose all three capabilities)
