this is an interesting take on mac useability, but you really can tell that he is mostly a windoze user.

OMG,

That was hysterical.... I was laughing so hard I had to watch it again to get all the bits I missed.

Thanks Alephcat, I need that one...

Funny, some of those are the kinds of problems I have when trying to use Windows. [Razz]

Actually I don't really take it as a Mac thing, he could've just said computer and it would still have been hilarious...

I think what makes it so funny is that at one time or another we've probably all watched as someone goes into that sort of a spin IRL - Remember the guy (in Texas I think) who shot his PC with a magnum, because he couldn't get it to do what he wanted?

Actually that sort of computing "experience" is exactly what Jef Raskin railed against.

a fair ammount of his critisims are aplicable to windos [sic] too, I have not really used mac so I can not say how many of them are valid, but it was very funny.

Actually none of it was valid criticism (except maybe the bit about once it's deleted that's your lot) but that shouldn't get in the way of a good skit...

Actually that probably makes it funnier, because people I've met who are really like that accuse their hardware/software of the most blatantly impossible things and actually believe it...

And when he dropkicked the iMac I was crying with laughter... real tears...

.WMV? ::shudder::

EDIT: I take it everyone has heard how they stole all the insides?

PS The video isn't working for me. I refuse to install WMP, and Mplayer is only givng me audio. Any suggestions? Mac mini/10.3/ Mplayer 2.0b9

I haven't had any of the problems he's had, but there are several computers in my school's journalism classroom (a 25-system Mac lab) that I need to drop out of that second-story window.

*That* was great. And guess what? I watched it on my Mini. In fact, I'm writing this in Firefox on my Mini. [Big Grin] The disk recovery thing always makes me laugh at how stupidly frail HFS+ is. I can recover formatted NTFS hard drives in a few hours - I've never really had reason to do so with ext2, but the same software I use to recover FAT & NTFS can recover ext2. (Yes, a lot can be found with just Knoppix, but I do have great software for recovering the aforementioned formats -- but those systems aren't usually rendered inoperable, unlike Mac OS 9 [and probably X.]) Oh...and the bloody file renaming bit - I don't personally get the 'rename willy nilly through double-clicking' "feature."
