Amusing article by The Toronto Star's Aneurin Bosley who, despite a self-proclaimed "decade railing against Apple and its cult-like following," found nothing but deep sorrow for Steve Jobs' demise.
If I had a nickel for each time I've heard the refrain "Macs are just better," I'd be writing this from a sandy beach in the Caribbean.
I didn't matter that Macs could be just as crash-prone as Windows PCs. It didn't matter that Steve Jobs periodically made bizarre decisions (keyboards without arrow keys, now you see it now you don't Firewire and USB ports). It didn't matter that PCs have almost always given users better bang for the buck in computing power. It didn't matter that the Mac user lecturing me had just picked their beloved (and dead) machine up from the Apple repair store. Macs were just better.
And don't get me started on the prison-like obsession with proprietary technology. The thought of having to use iTunes every day makes me cringe.
