Quake 3 maps
Tuesday, March 25, 2008

"Welcome to the Arena, where high-ranking warriors are transformed into spineless mush. Abandoning every ounce of common sense and any trace of doubt, you lunge onto a stage of harrowing landscapes and veiled abysses. Your new environment rejects you with lava pits and atmospheric hazards as legions of foes surround you, testing the gut reaction that brought you here in the first place. Your new mantra: Fight or be finished."

Not a huge fan of Apple.
Tuesday, March 11, 2008

There are many reasons why I feel I have to say this, I have decided to say it now because in one week I came across three people (who are not connected in any significant way) who all made bold statements along the lines of: "Apples are just better, more stable, faster, better."

People complain that Microsoft violates anti-trust laws because they include IE with windows, and make it hard to remove. Yet Apple has sold hardware that includes their OS, and many many smaller programs including a browser - but no one ever complains about that. Apple totally locks the competition out of their (small but growing) market.

The Ipod and Itunes make it hard for you to load songs from a different computer, share music, or do many other things that you want with your songs (does anyone use Itunes with a non-Ipod player?). Many people out there think the Ipod was the first MP3 player... and Apply people are happy to accept that. I owned the first Ipod, in 1999. It was a Rio. People now even call MP3 players Ipods even if they are not Ipods...

That brings me to the Ithing. Naming every product with an I is obnoxious. Similar to the attitude of mac users who assume they are better, based largely on constant lying on the part of Apple in commercials and on the internet. One example would be the apple users who sit in Starbucks and type, always as close as possible to the front window so people can see them typing into their I-titanium laptop while sipping a $8 grande machiatto before driving home in a Matrix.

I can go on... Huge cost, lack of custom building options...

Wait apple has actually switched over to the "inferior (according to their own adds)" hardware from Intel.

Then there is Steve Jobs... sorry that he has cancer, but he does act like the best thing since Buddha, and that gets old very quickly. It seems to rub off on many apple users who think that the laptop or mp3 player you pick really says something about you as a person. You are not a god, and the Ipod kinda sucks. The last good apple was a Mac Quadra, but I gave it away to a technology school after shedding a single tear for the ending of a great era of gaming.

Not to say there is anything wrong with using an apple. Just don't pretend it is any better than pcs out there - indeed in many cases it is worse and certainly cost you more. Don't pretend to know that it crashes less... because i've seen apples crash all the time, and have yet to see my XP crash a single time. Just enjoy whatever computer you have without worrying about being superior. Come to think of it, apple is always trying to be the anti-clone ... but all I see are Ipods on the subway, so what does that mean? Someone bring out Avara 2 or some other games from Ambrosia... and maybe I will reconsider.

Hi I am guest blogger David Mortari. When not throwing dogs off a cliff in Iraq, and also not reading Chaucer or Marcel Proust, I work as a guest blogger here at R2K (a quake 3 blog). I have picked a few videos of people who are stupid or doing stupid things or who are very bad at standup. Semper Fi! See you in the suck!

I think this is the finest science blog out there. Everyone can enjoy the great photos and maps, and those into geology can learn quite a bit about fairly advanced sediment science - both the movements of sediment and the formation of sedimentary rocks. Give it a visit some time.
