Mac vs. PC – In one corner, you have the ol’ reliable PC that you’ve grown up with, she’s the lady you’ve been married to for 20 years, you and her were holding hands on the Oregon Trail back in Elementary School. God damn, I loved Oregon Trail, if that was the only thing a PC ever accomplished, I’d stay faithful to her. You know the desktop, you know how to create folders, and you’re a freaking hero when it comes to PowerPoint.
On the other hand, you have Mac who’s stylish, sleek, and filled with neat programs for editing movies, music, and designing birthday cards. Mac was way, way, way behind in sales behind PC, but then they adapted Microsoft Office and people who weren’t graphic designers figured they could give the pretty computer a shot.
The winner is easily the PC. Good lord it would be cool to have a computer that slid into an envelop, but do you really need it? It’s not like you’re sending your computer through inter-office mail, you’re not designing a feature film, or doing anything other than listening to you iTunes and checking e-mail. Save yourself $500 and pick up a cheap PC, it even comes with the software that is making Mac popular again (MS Office).
Deem’s 19th Favorite Band
White Stripes – I will buy any album the White Stripe release. I don’t care for any other band featuring Jack White, just give me the White Stripes. When Jack White has the spotlight entirely focused on him, he delivers the most awesome guitar solos, intense vocals, and it feels like a dog backed into a corner.
Standout Track: Ball & a Biscuit – Deep and rich bluesy riffs, unintelligible lyrics, and guitar solos that kick you in the teeth.
