I’ve wanted to want an Apple. You read that correctly. I want to want one.
I had Apple computers from my sophomore year of high school till three years after I graduated college. Yet, I don’t haven’t wanted to purchase a Mac for three reasons:
- They’re expensive. Mac mini has solved that to some extent.
- The mouse has only one button. It looks like that will be taken care of. ..and seriously, the ability to right click is so superior to the one button thing its not even funny. My mouse has 5 buttons and I use them all.
- The menu bar isn’t attached to the window so I never know what applications are running. As far as I know this is still an issue.
They are taking steps in the right direction. They need to get off their high horse about how superior the Mac OS is. It was superior, when you had to deal with Windows 3.11 but it isn’t anymore. I think that attitude has prevented them from making necessary changes.
Now if they can only get game developers to port stuff to the Mac in bigger numbers, they’d be set.
Edit: This is my current mouse. I really like it. I should note that I currently use more Microsoft hardware products than software products. If Real didn’t go so far out of their way to make using their product painful, I’d give up Windows Media Player too.
