“I have talented players and I’m not getting them to play well enough. To me, that’s the root of the problem.”—Wade Philips (Hey, Jerry! I think your coach is making it clear that he needs to be fired!!!)
So I got my work PC around the end of June. It’s a decent machine for whatever kind of Dell it is and loaded with some version of Windows 7. And it’s only given me issues a few times with apps crashing or the whole system becoming unresponsive.
But I think it’s time is about done. I noticed it getting slower last week, but today it’s darn near unusable. How long is that, about 4 months?
And people wonder why I want to spend “so much money” on a Mac.
A lot of people hate how Apple limits how users can customize their hardware. Especially now with the new Macbooks and Macbook Airs, everything is held inside with a single enclosure and virtually impossible for people to tinker with.
What’s interesting to me is that they are starting to do this more now with the software. It really started with the iPhone and the iOS. All you do is download apps and delete apps without ever thinking about the underlying file system. You don’t even have to install the apps. It just does it by itself.
With Mac OS X Lion, Apple’s starting to bring this to the Mac too. Users will have the option of the Mac Store where all the Apps will download and install with a click, and Apps can be viewed and launched from a single pane. Less tinkering with folders and file systems, and more doing on the work that actually matters.
