More ragging on apple.

Qouting other sites makes me less biase looking, right?

The Onion takes a jab at apple... customers. Remember that story about the emporors new clothes?

I think it is absolutely impossible for apple to lose touch with reality.

They lack a necessary state (click here for read link).

My favorite:
Let me get this straight… Keeping it ILLEGAL to jailbreak phones will dissuade terrorists and drug dealers from doing these horrible things that Apple claims could be done with their phones?

Really? So a terrorist who would bring down the Cell Phone towers, or a drug dealer who would sell heroin to children, is going to go, “Woah, dude… wait a minute… I’m not going to risk violating the DMCA!”

Apple Legal Team Fail.

For clarity's sake.

I thought I should provide a little guide to not-watching things, just in case any of you were confused. There are many many techniques for not-watching, this is just a personal favorite of mine.

1.) Find something that is watchable, that is the only requirement, you don't have to worry about it being any good (it's actually easier if it isn't)
2.) set it up, as if in the sound belief that you will watch it, plump a nice pillow, adjust the volume, get comfortable....
3.) Attempt to synchronize your personal passage into sleep with the end of the intro credits.

There are many variations on this. two of my other favorites are identical up to step 3. simply replace that step with either "realize, if possible, suddenly, that you are late for the evining shift at work, leave." or "allow the forces of the universe to cause an emergency in the next room, a minor indoor flood or fire works well, proceed to act reasonable for such a situation."

with practice you can become an expert not-watcher like me.

"Of course it cannot be changed, else I will be known as the son of a tortoise"

I have been not-watching things alot this summer. While I was looking for a show to not watch, i ran across this:

It is now my favorite show to not-watch. I think there is a lot of not-watching potential in all K-drama.

so true

The dig

I just want to point out that steam has the classic Lucas Arts title "the dig" for $5. If you have never played this, and are currently in possession of a soul, you should definitely go buy it now. With a story written by Orson Scott Card (yes, Scott Card, one of the best selling fiction writers of all time, the only man to ever with both the hugo and the nebula award two years in a row...) and produced by steven speilberg (yah... no introduction for him.) Nice (albeit aging) hand drawn art. and Myst like adventure mystery gameplay.... its worth it. Very much worth it.

TF2 ripoff

This not yet released korean made title HAVE is an amusingly faithful clone of team fortress 2. The sad thing is, all else being held equal I would prefer this more justifiably cartoony premise and the more open (and therefore less team dependant) level design to TF2.
