(Are you listening Google? Strike him off your fan boy list immediately!) (can you make his phone blow up while you're at it? Sorry, they're the iphones, I forgot)

They pushed me a Nougat OTA update that made my phone turn off at 15% power every time as punishment for my transgression.

Had to get an RMA replacement...
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

I'd be shocked to discover that ANY Apple user actually knows how to use a computer.


Still miss translating into binary?
The kind of believing engaged in by most Christians we meet is not neutral, truth seeking believing. It isn't acceptance of the best supported conclusion, not submission to the facts. "True believers" believe heroically, they launch their belief at their chosen target with enthusiasm. While thrusting their belief forward they will brook no but-what-if's. Facts which do not conform are not recognized. 'True' belief is drunk with celebrating certainty, no further quest is required .. only the constant parrying with nay sayers.

Nope.  And I don't miss transferring files easily from one folder to another, or one device to another, because I don't have to screw around with virtual synching BS.

Yeah, the extra button press is stifling.

Command+C, Command+Option+V.

I waste so much energy with that Option button, I almost have to take an extra nap most days...

Its pretty easy to shock you apparently. I was a PC tech for many years. Made a decent living at it. Built all my own PC's and servers, the whole bit. Now I'm down to two non-mac boxes. My music machine and my shop computer. The computer in the shop is an ancient PC that runs a linux install. My music creation machine is a homebuilt win10 machine because I've used Sonar for so long that its like my native language when it comes to DAW's and everything else I've seen just gets in the way of creativity because the workflow is so different. 

Everything else in the house is a mac. Why? Economics. A mac that costs 2-3x as much as a pc tends to last 4-5x as long IME. Can't argue with the numbers.
