Sour apples

In the Guardian, Charlie Brooker says he hates Macs:

I hate Macs. I have always hated Macs. I hate people who use Macs. I even hate people who don’t use Macs but sometimes wish they did. Macs are glorified Fisher-Price activity centres for adults; computers for scaredy cats too nervous to learn how proper computers work; computers for people who earnestly believe in feng shui.

Windows is a virus

Against my better judgment, I installed Parallels on my new school MacBook Pro. I just uninstalled it. The machine was running slower than I do on a cold morning and getting slower faster than I am with age. The hard drive was running constantly. My available space got down to 116KB (from 14 gigs). Something in Parallels or Windows was running on its own and filling up space; I’ve seen on the forums that I’m not alone. It’s gone. My machine is back to normal, I hope. Windows is a virus.
