A Frightful Vision Of My Future 3

Lorene Machado writes in Margaret Cho’s blog about becoming an iHo: The slow, steady process of having Apple products take over your life.

I just bought a PowerBook (with AirPort wireless) about five months ago, and I’m already coveting an iPod.

I’m trying to justify away the iPod lust by explaining that I really want one for my car because I drive so much and sick of shuffling CDs around in my car, since I refuse to listen to the radio anymore.

There is, of course, no response to the “Why don’t you just get a cheaper, non iPod music player?” other than, “Because it’s so fucking cool!”

    I have an iPod. I like my iPod.

    BUT I HATE APPLE PRODUCTS. My iBook from work SUCKS. And all other mac products are the tool of the devil. BOOOO APPLE!

    iBooks are the bottom of the line in terms of processor speed, hard drive space, and other capabilities. Also, cost, and knowing corporate computer-buying patterns, they probably bought the cheapest, shittiest ones they could get away with. Thus, they’re supposed to suck.

    My hopped-up G4 powerbook with a gig of RAM, a 60 gig hard drive, and a DVD burner, however, is quite fine, thanks :)

    Our iBook kicks ass. We drove the reception music from it, and we have the wedding pictures on it, too. And my G4 (when I order it) will kick ass.
