Apple's percentage of the US PC market falls to 7.4%

What's that I hear? It sounds like...a recession! Right outside the door! Looks like people can't afford to pay the Apple Tax when they have the more important Income Tax shitting all over their wallets. Maybe if you lowered your stupid fucking prices Apple, people would start buying your shit products again like the morons they are. But when America is in the middle of a recession, you can only choose one:

a) High Prices

b) Shitty Products

"Baby Shaker" App removed from iPhone App Store - Disregard for Freedom Abundant

Apple removed an app from the app store, because it had supposedly received a lot of complaints. This is just another show of Apple's malicious restricting of their own App Store. Apps have to be personally reviewed by Apple Employees, which is bullshit, and now App Stores are been pulled AFTER being given the green light?

If you approved the fucking app, you approved the fucking app! Is this a hard concept to understand? "We Just approved a law that bans rape. Oh no, all the rapists of the world are saying we should remove that law. Okay them, hooray for peer pressure!"

Not to mention the fact that the app was fucking awesome and removing it is a sin. It let you shake a crying baby. I can't possibly think of a better use for the iPhone than that.

Snow Leopard Feature Allows Screen Capture (!)

HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS. APPLE's new OS, Snow Leopard, is reported to have this awesome new feature where you can record on screen tasks. This has MADE Snow Leopard that more fucking awesome, with ANOTHER cool gadget to play with! This is obviously a lot better than the SHITTY GIMMICK programs that are free and all over the Windows Operating System. I'm so pumped for this new feature!

(Hint: Read the words in CapsLock to hear what I really think!)

Windows 7 - Basic Can't Change Background?!

Yeah yeah, this is an anti-Apple blog, but when Microsoft does something as stupid as this, it deserves to be mentioned.

The new Windows 7 Basic version can't change their background.


Yeah, what? That is fucking ridiculous. There are some ways around it, but it's possible the exploits will either

A) Be Fixed in the final build
B) Not be permanent

Microsoft, u r dum. Change it back.
(Because they will totally hear me)

PS: I got reports that its old but its news to me

Mac VS PC: Pricing

Everyone knows Macs are priced high, but some poeple would also lead you to believe that you are paying the extra for better "parts" or software.

Today's post will completely end this notion for Macs (not macbooks) once and for all.

I'm going to compare the price of a custom built PC to the price of a prebuilt Mac, to see the specs and price, and if the difference really is accounted for or not.

First complaint I can already hear pouring in: BUT CAWMBAT, IM 2 DUM 2 BUILT CIOMPUTER!!!11

Protip: get someone to build it for you. I'm sure there is SOMEONE who is willing to put it together for you. If there isn't put it together yourself, you pansy. It's pretty damn easy. If you are seriously lost, buy a guide by PC gamer or something, they have PC Builder Bible Issues.

Second complaint rushing in like a flood: BUT CAWMBAT, MAC OS X IS TTLY FUKN SUPERIOR 2 UR SHIT M$ LOL!!!!

As much as I disagree with you on that, there is a simple way around that. There are plenty of simple procedures that allow you to run Mac Leopard on any PC, and even dual boot between the two. So, both computers, the mac and the custom built, will run Leopard. All parts from the Custom Built PC will be bought from Newegg.

Without further ado, let the macfags get TOLD.

Mac: 2.66 GHZ Quad Core Intel
PC: 3.2 GHZ Quad Core Intel
WINNER: It's fairly obvious; the Custom Built.

Mac: 8GB DDR2 (4x2GB)
PC: 12GB DDR3 (6x2GB)
WINNER: Custom Built, especially since its DDr3 RAM.

Hard Drives
Mac: 3TB Hard Drive Space (3x1TB Drives)
PC: 4TB Hard Drive Space (4 x 1TB Drives)
WINNER: Custom Built.

Video Card
Mac: 2x nVidia GTX 120 (SLI)
PC: 2x nVidia GTX 285 (SLI)
WINNER: The Mac just got murdered. Custom Built wins.

Optical Drive
Mac: 18x SuperDrive DVD Burner/Reader
PC: Blu Ray and DVD Burner/Reader
WINNER: Custom Built.

Mac: Apple 24" Cinema Display
PC: 26" Monitor
Winner: Custom Built. Screen Size is bigger, response time is better, and max res will be the same.


Mac: -Unknown-
PC: eVGA ATX Classified Motherboard
WINNER: Definately the Custom Built. I don't know the Mac motherboard, but this mobo is almost 500 dollars, barely anything can beat it.

Power Supply
Mac -Unknown-
PC: 1200watt Power Supply
WINNER: Custom Built.

Mac: $4,498.00 USD
PC: $3,885.00 USD

Well, what do you know? the mac didn't win any of the categories. I sure didn't see this coming. At all. Totally.

The Golden Rules of P2P

Lately I've been seeing some articles elsewhere about rules to follow as a pirate, and they So take from this what you will, but here's my official list of Golden Rules to follow while engaging in P2P activities.

Rule 1: Always, ALWAYS Seed to at Least a 1:1 Ratio

Seriously, if you don't follow this rule, you are going to Pirate Hell, where you will burn for an eternity. Upload as much as you download, or you are effectively killing P2P. This setup RELIES on Pirates sharing with each other, and without it, it will fail. If you don't seed to at least a 1:1 ratio, you are a thief among thieves. That's pretty low, mang.

Rule 2: Never Upload False or Harmful Torrents

If you do, you're a faggot. It's pretty straightforward.

Rule 3: If You Can Afford it, at the Very Least CONSIDER Buying It

It really doesn't hurt to pay for something once in a while. Support the people who spend hard work into their projects, if you think they really deserve it and you have the cash.

Follow these Three Golden Rules, and you're all set. If you break them, especially the first two, you can go burn in hell, you scurvy dog.

The iPod Shuffle - Update!

OH man, the iPod Shuffle can't just die, can it? Apple has come out with a new version of the famously terrible "iPod Shuffle" and idea so stupid that it should win some kind of award. The original was bad enough, but this is getting ridiculous.

The new version of the iPod Shuffle is so ingenious, the actual player doesn't come with controls. Yeah, that's right. The controls are stuck onto the headphones. And since Apple's headphones have been known to be notoriously shitty, this is a pretty bad idea.

Hey guys, I'm going to use my iPod Shuffle now, just let me get those $150 dollar headphones I bought for it-

WHAT? No controls?!

Smooth, Apple.

Also, it's a great show of Apple Tax in action. This littl chunk of text from another website will explain:

All told, the cost of the shuffle's components, the headphones, and the packaging it ships in comes to $21.77, according to iSuppli's estimates. That's about 28% of the device's retail price.

the iPod Shuffle costs $22 dollars to make. I realize that doesn't factor in the cost of the designing and "research" went into creating this, but think about it. It's just the original Shuffle, with no buttons. There wasn't much of a change at all. 72% profit for a thing like this is atrocious, and a true example of the Apple Tax.

Seriously, Mang

PS: I'm starting this blog back up due to boredom and the fact that I'm raging at everything lately and need a place to vent. (Also yes, I stated, when i first created it, that this blog would be used for things other than Apple Stuff too)

I saw an interesting Comment on Kotaku today in a news post about Sony PSP Piracy today.

That's why demos, reviews, previews, videos, screenshots, news articles, and forums exist. If you still manage to buy a game that is utter shit, even with all of these resources available to you, you have no one to blame for wasting your money other than yourself. It isn't the publisher's fault. It isn't the developer's fault. You were a stupid consumer. Period.

-Anonymous (I Don't Remember His Name, Deal W/ It Nerd)
Needless to say, I was actually quite concerned. This man's logic was indeed quite appalling.

Let's look at a similar scenario that follows this same train of logic:

Oh, hey there you guys. I'm just on my way to work, as a police officer. I don't really feel like working today though, so I think I'll just slack off all day. If someone across the street from me gets shot by a criminal, I guess it's just their fault for going outside today, not my fault for not actually doing my job properly.


If real life actually worked like that, we would all be FUCKING DEAD.

However, let me be serious here. I don't try to defend acts of Piracy as "Mang, we're fucking Robin Hood and shit! STICK IT TO DA MAN!!!!" These people are just trying to appeal to their guilty consciences because they stole something. This is wrong. Piracy is stealing, I'm not trying to be all mighty and covering my shit by saying "LOL I R RIGHTEOUS". It's thievery, no matter how you look at it, and the sooner these LOL RIGHTEOUS Pirates realize that, the better. That still doesn't allow ignorant people like our commenter here to sling stupid shit around.

Piracy is a ( mostly) victimless crime. Yeah, I said it, faggots. If the person didn't plan to actually buy it in the first place, or was PHYSICALLY INCAPABLE of purchasing it, and they pirate it, who is being harmed? Oh right, no one! There's no lost sale, there's no lost copy (its just lines of code, people), there's no nothing.

Of course, some people respond with "But Cawmbat, you ignorant faggot, if someone is physically incapable of buying something (poorfags), they shouldn't be allowed to have it. That's the whole point of money!"

I'd say you are right, and you are wrong. This kind of logic only applies to physical objects. If I go and steal a banana from a store, simply because I couldn't afford it, it isn't a victimless crime. Someone had to grow that banana, factor in its size for shipping, and store it. But if I go download a movie from Demonoid or The Pirate Bay because I couldn't afford it, no one loses anything, it's not a physical copy of something. I guess you could compare it to a concept or idea, not something concrete.

In conclusion, both sides of the PIRACY WAR LOL annoy me. The ones who don't just deal with their actions and admit they steal ,and those who think Piracy is the end of the fucking world as we know it.

The bottom line, when I wake up some day, and video games no longer exist because of piracy, you can come and say "I told you so". Until then, shut the fuck up, because that day isn't coming.

The iPod Shuffle.

Here's something that honestly hasn't been given as much negative credit as it should have. It kind of slid under the radar as a boring piece of shit, but that really doesn't do it justice. The iPod Shuffle is, like the Macbook Air, one of the worst concepts Apple has ever thought up. Apple needs to stop making smaller versions of their products, it just fucks shit up even more.

The Shuffle's size is the beginning of its problems. It's so small you could lose it inside the point of a fucking pin. Then there's the part where your three year old cousin swallows it and chokes all the way to the hospital. Or the possibility that you step on it, or that you lose it under the seat of the car, or it falls out of your jacket pocket and you don't notice because it weighs as much as a feather.

Some things jsut aren't meant to be small, but that's certainly not the end of the iPod Shuffle's problems. First, it doesn't even have a screen because of its damn size. How do you pick your music then? Well...You don't. It shuffles your music constantly, so if you want to play a certain song, you can fucking forget about and kick yourself in the face for actually buying an iPod Shuffle.

Oh and, the maximum space capacity for the Shuffle is 2GB. Try having any meaningful amount of music on 2GB of space. What's that? You can't do that, Tim? I didn't think so. Enjoy your aids and fail.

Of course, the excitement doesn't stop here. Introducing Apple's latest hip product, the iPhone Shuffle. In Soviet Apple, you don't choose phone call. Phone call chooses YOU.

"Get A Mac" Commercials

Today I will be focusing on the "Get A Mac" ad campaign, marketed by Apple for their Macintosh computers. When not refereed to by their overly close-minded official name (Get A Mac? Don't tell me what the fuck to do, Steve Jobs. How about I tell you to stop being a retard and not be a Vegan any more?), they are more commonly called the "Mac Vs PC Ads", or something similar. I'm going to go through some of my (least) favorites, and explain why they are fucking stupid.

1. Mac Vs PC - Viruses

Ah, the age old argument of Viruses. Macfags love using the argument, "But our Macs don't get viruses, you prick!" You know what I say to that? Fuck you, I don't get Viruses either. You know why? I use the greatest anti-Virus known to man, and it's only compatible with Windows: Common Sense 2009.

This nifty device actually does the work of warning my brain when something could be potentially harmful to my computer. It works perfect, and is not overly evasive. In fact, most of the time I don't even know it's there! It works that good.

So sure, you can enjoy your virus free OS . It's the least we can offer you, since we know you are already going through the horrible pain of actually have to use a Mac. That should be punishment enough for being a complete dumbass.

2. Mac Vs PC - Better

I don't know where this notion ever came from, probably as propeganda started from inside Apple themselves, but that's redundant. The point is it's a total lie, neither OS is any better than the other at graphic design etc. For Movie editing, Apple has Final Cut Pro, and Windows has things liek Sony Vegas 8 (example). For Music, Apple has iTunes, and Windows has WMP/Winamp. For Photos, both OS's have Photoshop.

If you think either Operation System has an advantage over another in any of these categories, you can go fuck a goat. In fact, many of these categories have several notable programs that can be used on either machine.

3. Mac Vs PC - V Word

I don't understand how they pass this off as actual advertising anymore. Look at this ad. What does it tell the average user about Apple's product, or the competition's product, or...anything, really? That's right, ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOTHING.

This isn't advertising anymore. This isn't even propeganda. This is blatent trolling that has nothing to do with anything Apple is trying to sell. It's basically a group of Mac Executives going up to random people in the street, kicking them in the shins, then screaming through a megaphone to tranfer to a Mac, all the while singing the most annoying song you can think of.

This, is advertising:

Moving on to the iPod Touch

Ah...The iPod Touch. A personal favorite of mine when it comes to raging about Apple's Products, because this little device is the prime example of how simply adding a touch screen to absolutely anything will make your product instantly ten times better regardless of its other specifications. Not to mention the iPod Touch/iPhone is the sole cause of this new "hip" movement where every phone and mp3 player ever must have a touchscreen or you become a total fucking retard.

Just take a look at this thing. The weak-minded in the audience will instantly be taken in by it's sleek design and HOLY SHIT A FUCKING TOUCH SCREEN WHERE DO I BUY ONE HERE'S MY CREDIT CARD NUMBER.

The more intelligent ones in the crowd will, at very least, reserve their judgment for the specifications and....The price.

The price on these things is ridiculous for the screen size and hard drive space you get. The 32GB iTouch, as of this date, is $400 fucking dollars. That is the most unacceptable price for a 32GB MP3 player I have ever heard, flashy touch screen or not. I own a Zune 80GB, and it has 48 extra GB of space. The screen is 0.2 inches smaller than the iTouch. Guess the price difference? The iTouch is an entire two hundred dollars more. Could a touch screen honestly be worth that much to someone, in place of actual useful functions?

You might say, "baawwwww, I don't need 80GB of space you fat fuck!" Yeah? Then buy a 30GB Zune, or 16GB Zune (I'm using a Zune as an example, there are plenty of good non-touchscreen MP3 players out there that aren't Apple products). Both of those are cheaper than their iTouch counterparts, by far.

And trust me, this amazing touch screen everyone praises really isn't the most amazing thing to grace this Earth since Jesus Christ made a bunch of bread and fish or however that went. As hard as it is to believe, touch screens can actually be an inconvenience sometimes. Like when you are such a fat fuck you cant use your pudgy little fingers to press the icons on your screen. Also, I hope you enjoy mucking up your SLEEK STYLAN HIP iTouch with your grubby fingers. Those fingerprints all over your screen will go great with the black gloss all around it.

Hey, guess what? The games suck too. Now, I'm not promoting the games for Zune (they suck just as much), but Apple hyped up the games part just as much as the fact that it actually plays MP3's. So the average consumer, seeing the commercial, will expect to get some awesome games. Too bad they will have to look somewhere else, since the games are terrible gimmicks.

Oh, and the headphones are terrible, yet add a huge cost to the final price. What a waste.

First of all, the MacBook Air.

Seriously, what the fuck is up with that thing? What were Apple and Steve Jobs the Retarded Vegan thinking when they made this putrid piece of shit?

This laptop is so ridiculous I can hardly control my horrible rage...Where do I start? Well, a picture is worth a thousand words:

Look at this thing. Sure, it's small but that small comes at a horrible price. First of all, it's made by Apple. That should set off a multitude of warning signs all over your brain. Second of all, thirteen inch screens are for people in the stone age. I could get a laptop with a 13" screen for $600 these days, and guess how much the Macbook Air is?

$2,500 CAD. Twenty Five hundred dollars. A marvelous scam if I ever heard one. Speaking of other laptops, I'm sure you are eager to find out how the Macbook Air compares against other popular netbooks (for the record, I don't really like any netbooks, but this chart proves that Apple is the king of screwing their customers).

Image belongs too...Well, I couldn't really tell. If you are the author of this image and would like it removed, contact me.

The most glaring ridiculous flaw of this netbook to me, is the lack of an Optical Drive. Apple seems to be fond of turning back the clock on technology about a decade. Every netbook in the Air's price range that I have seen has a DVD drive. Second of all, the fucking battery isnt removable. So your dreams of buying extra batteries for when you run out of power on a roadtrip have just been crushed, enjoy it. Not to mention when the shitty Apple OS crashes, and you have to wait until the battery dies before it shuts off.

This laptop is an amazingly overpriced netbook that underperforms like nothing else. It is easily one of the biggest technological blunders Apple has ever dreamed up, and that's quite the accomplishment. All the Air has to show for the massive price is the fact that in can fit into a Manilla Envelope. Which, I guess, will be useful whwn you want to mail it to someone who gives a fuck.

My First Post

Hey look I made a blog. No one will probably ever read this, but I felt I had to vent about (mostly) how Apple makes shitty products and is alienating the entire world with their overpriced under performing pieces of plastic shit that Steve Jobs the Retarded Vegan pisses on then releases to the public. Deal with it.

I have a lot of catching up to do, there's so much shit that's been released by Apple, I have a big week ahead of me. So enjoy my blog, or don't (stupid macfag), or just never come here, (but if you don't, you won't be reading this anyway, so this part is totally pointless. I made it anyway). But, above all, you're a fat.
