If you are a fan of Apple computers, then you are a moron and should stop reading this right now. I am typing this (with difficulty) on my iPad because my 1 year old Mac desktop just died. It literally just broke in the middle of twittering. The screen turned blue and there is nothing I can do. I’ve tried everything. I have an option to use Windows OS on that computer so I restarted with Windows and that doesn’t work either. Nothing works.
Fucking piece of crap computer. I’ve never had a PC just shut off and die on me. My Sony laptop from 6 years ago STILL works. But because I am jinxed, I decided to give it away 4 days ago since I didn’t think I had any use for it anymore.
Mac is garbage. I hate it. I’ve never owned a computer that performed more slowly or had as many problems as this one – except for the last Mac I owned: NEVER AGAIN. I said that the last time I threw an Apple computer into the garbage, and I meant it, but it was my husband who brought this Mac into my life against my will. He said Macs are better because they don’t get viruses. That is the ONLY reason I have ever heard anyone give for why these half assed computers are better than PC’s. I’ve owned a lot of PC’s in my life. I’ve never once had a virus. Ever. But I have had Macs that can’t even get me through a photoshop session with out freezing up and shutting down. PC’s are like Bethany, smart, hard working, intelligent and gets the job done, while mac is like Kelly, trying so hard to be Bethany but failing miserably at every turn. Now that is a Mac commercial I would like to see!
From now on I am boycotting this stupid piece of crap company and their worthless products – and that includes iPhones and iPods. This iPad was my last purchase and I am already regretting this decision. The iPad is pretty much worthless unless you “jail break it”. If you can’t get it jail broken, don’t waste your money. Pretty much the only video player it will allow you to watch videos on is Youtube. Forget divx, megavideo, or any decent video player. You have to pay for every shitty app that you will end up using once or twice and then forgetting about. And you can’t even download the free apps without entering credit card information. When you take it out of the box you can’t even turn it on until you connect it to iTunes – which I don’t have. So just turning the thing on was a huge pain in the butt. It also won’t stay connected to the Internet. Every time I close Safari for one second I have re connect when I want to open it again. It also occasionally closes safari on me at random. And it refuses to show scroll bars in text box’s. You cant scroll with your fingers, because that just moves the entire page you are on, and there are no up and down arrows on this half assed little keyboard. So basically, if you were typing a comment on my page that was longer then the length of the box, you would have no way to scroll up and see the beginning of what you wrote. I am typing this in text box right now, because when you go on wordpress from the iPad it takes away the option to write posts with a full screen. So you have no choice but to write in a box that allows you to see about 6 lines of text at a time with no way to scroll up or down. If there are any spelling errors please forgive me, but the iPad refused to let me go back and check. Also, the keyboard automatically capitalizes letters randomly in the middle of a sentence.
Also, Steve jobs is a self important douche. I don’t know what he has against Adobe and I don’t really care, but why do I have to suffer for it? How can anyone in this day and age make a product that isn’t compatible with Adobe? It is ridiculous and inconvenient! And while we’re at it – why the fuck don’t Mac’s have a right-click option?! How you Mac lovers can live without a right-click, I will never understand.
The iPad is a fun toy to play around with. But that is all it is; a toy for adults. There is no practical use for this thing. It is basically just a larger iPhone without the phone. It will not replace your laptop. The coolest thing about it is the touch screen, but that novelty wears off pretty quickly. Especially as the screen becomes smudged with finger prints. And it only works with your finger tips, so you can’t use a pen, or your fake nails or what have you, to click on things or scroll the page. If you like touch screens, you would be much better off going with the HP TouchSmart Pc. It folds flat like the iPad and you can use or finger tips, the included pen, or anything you feel like using with the touch screen. It works all ways. (And no I am not getting anything for free for saying that.)
Never in my life has an electrical appliance caused as much frustration and aggravation as the Apple computer. The only way I will ever spend another dollar on anything Mac related is if they one day create a computer with human intelligence, feelings and emotions. Then I will buy it just so I can hear it cry and beg for its life while I smash it to pieces. Fuck Apple. And fuck Steve jobs and all the assholes at Mac. I hope they go the way of the Giudices’ and end up bankrupt!
