Mac Is 25 Years Old

Most of you already know that this Motorcycles Blog is written and published on a MacBook Pro wherever I go. There are 1000’s good reasons for this (Mac fanboys understand). In 1984, a young Steve Jobs was introducing the first Mac. It was before the explosion of the internet and before Microsoft decided to copy Macintosh graphical interface to “create” Windows. Today, Apple is the gold standard for electronics. Thanks Steve Jobs. Wishing you a long and healthy life.

    I have been living with Apple’s and Mac’s since 1986.
    In the past there were some tough years and sketchy systems…..
    The newest generations are the best ever….

    highly recommended, no matter the premium cost

    Did anyone ever see the movie “Pirates of Silicon Valley.” If I remember correctly the graphic interface technology was developed by Xerox, they just didn’t have a practicle application for it. In come a group of young computer geeks and that is when the Mac/Windows war started. I know the info I have just came from a movie so enlighten us if there is more to it.

    Joe: The next thing you’ll tell me is that Al Gore didn’t invent the internet.

    But you are correct that neither Jobs and Woz nor Gates and Allen developed
    the interface. At least that is what I’ve been told all these years.

    Macs are overpriced computers for unintelligent people. They have great running very easy to use applications and operating system. They arent very succeptable to viruses. . . .but theyre 5x the cost of a comparable PC.

    I used to have an apple, bought it for design school. The teachers showed us that Apple was pretty much the way to go. 6 years later, it shit the bed and no one could fix it. So I was out 6 grand. Spent under 2 grand on my new PC and have had it for three years with little to no complaints.

    so my assesment is this: if you can afford a Mac, and cant effectively operate a computer. buy a mac.

    Custom fighter. These are the most stupid words ever written about Apple. All studies, tests, warranties prove otherwise. Market shares show that Apple is eating away PC sales. 5 times more expensive? Lie. The fastest computers to run Windows are Mac computers. But maybe you don’t know that you can run both Windows and OSX Leopard operating systems at the same time on a Mac. I would never authorize you to touch my motorcycle.

    Mac user since 1988. Accept no substitute. Leopard rules.

    I’m a former PC user — DOS, I remember you well — turned Mac fanatic. I will never go back to PC. I use a Mac at home and for work. Those few times I get stuck with the Dell laptop while on the road I’m at a loss and feel like I’m using something design by the government (an Eastern Bloc government at that). PCs are the hooptie rides of the computer world.

    Apple vs. Microsoft. “Want a proof that Apple Engineers are smarter than Microsoft ones?

    Three Microsoft engineers and three Apple employees are traveling by train to a computer conference. At the station, the three Microsoft engineers each buy tickets and watch as the three Apple employees buy only a single ticket.__”How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?” asks a Microsoft engineer.__”Watch and you’ll see,” answers the Apple employee.__They all board the train. The Microsoft engineers take their respective seats, but all three Apple employees cram into a restroom and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, “Ticket, please.”__The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes the ticket and moves on.__The Microsoft engineers saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea. So after the conference, the Microsoft engineers decide to do the same on the return trip and save some money.__When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the Apple employees don’t buy any ticket, at all.__”How are you going to travel without a ticket?” asks one perplexed Microsoft engineer.__”Watch and you’ll see,” answers an Apple employee.__When they board the train the three Microsoft engineers cram into a restroom and the three Apple employees cram into another one nearby. The train departs.__Shortly afterward, one of the Apple employees leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the Microsoft engineers are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, “Ticket, please…”

    PC forever, forever PC

    what are you going to do when steve doesn’t come back?
    even though I am sure the apple has at least 2 years worth of R & D in the works to keep the company profitable in the near future, what will you do after. any company that solely relies on 1 man to do everything is has a shelf life………..

    imagine Willie G being the Harley’s one man? Harley has 105 years for a reason….

    Been using a Mac full time since 1997. I’ll never go back to stuff that does not work and takes all weekend to get the simplest thing working. Now before you PC weenies get all upset, I have been in “IT” for 20 years and although I am an Apple developer now I cut my teeth on UNIX and DOS. The Mac just works.

    All that time I’m not spending trying to get my computer working I spend riding:)
