Hey remember this masterpiece of a computer? (Left?) The one that was said to revolutionize the home computing market, with its low price tag, all-in-one convenience, and groundbreaking design? Yeah, neither do I.

Sadly, this is the reality that a lot of Apple fanboys don't see when it comes to most of their product line. One minute, you have this earth-shattering piece of equipment that makes you feel like you're in Star Trek TNG, and in less than two years, it ends up something you can find in the back of Fred Sanford's Pickup truck.

Nowadays, Apple products have a turnover rate of a post-apocalyptic tomato garden. If you have an iPhone 5, the iPhone 6 and iOS 7 have already made your $600 iPhone 5 about as useful as a Apple II running a PC version of Half-Life on a 4k resolution.

Yeah, I've been a Mac fanboy since I was about 11, but I've only ever had an affinity for the Macs with the PowerPC chip, because everything looks better in heindsight when you're wearing your nostalgia goggles.

For us old-school Mac users, the PowerPC chip is where it's at. PowerPC had better fractal processing than x86 at the time, it was a RISC processor, (it was easier to code for using Assembly language,) and it was overall inherently different than the mainstream windows machines. Intel macs, in my opinion, are just your average x86 machine with a "license" to run Mac OS X. I have a Sony brand laptop that mine as well be a CLONE of the first Macbook, and cost me literally HALF what I would have paid for the first Macbook when it came out. Nowadays, I don't see a single ounce of justification for buying a new Mac anymore. They're overpriced, they're basically your average PC now, and they have about as much staying power as MC Hammer in 1991.

On a different note, Apple has always had this bad habbit of abandoning it's end users for new users. They did it with Mac OS 9, they did it with OSX 10.5, they did it when they abandoned OpenDoc and replaced it with Java, and they did it AGAIN when they abandoned PowerPC for Intel. Imagine how angry Apple's end users were when all those people who sold both of their kidneys and one of their nads to buy the PowerMac G5, were told that their machine was almost completely obsolete in less than two years?


Obviously, Apple is a money-making company, and will exploit its cool-aid drinking Jobshova's Witnesses for every penny out of their wallets, and every drop of their blood, but I think that this practice is going to bite this company in the ass pretty soon. Think about it: if the interval between an apple product being cutting edge and obsolete toilet paper gets any shorter, People --including Apple fanboys-- will start to realize that no matter how advanced this technology is when it comes out, it's only going to be worth a shit for about a year-and-a-half at most before it isn't compatible with anything Apple makes anymore. That, coupled with the already mortgage-payment price tags of these products and you have a recipe for disaster.

Why Apple Sucks as a Company (And How to Fix It)

Wired.com's  Senior Associate Editor, Angela Watercutter reported today (June 23rd, 2015) Marvel's pick for the new Peter Parker, and guess what!? It's a pale-face white kid with brown hair!

Now, I know what you're thinking: "no shit he's a pale-faced white kid with brown hair! It's almost as if they stayed true to the source-material or something!" But apparently, there are some people out there who find this revelation a little disappointing.

Apparently, screech from Saved-By-The-Bell over here (right) is a bit underwhelmed by the fact that Spider-Man is white person, Tom Holland. She would have preferred that the first EVER incarnation of Spider-Man in the Marvel cinematic universe were this Black-Latino kid named Miles Morales that no one outside of the hardcore comic fandom has ever heard of, who took over as the web-slinger after Peter Parker fucking DIED in the Ultimate comics universe.

In her article, she asserts that "When Marvel and Sony announced Spider-Man’s inclusion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe earlier this year, fans got excited that we could see a fresh take on the character, rather than just another fresh-faced white dude." (And by "fans", I'm sure she means those social Justice Warriors who are always known for their empowering message of equality and inclusion, unless, of course, you're a heterosexual white male. In which case, you can go fuck yourself.)

She then follows up this statement by saying: "No offense to fresh-faced white dudes." -as if that's supposed to negate the garbage we just read. Kinda the same way an intolerant southern redneck prefaces an argument with "I'm not a racist, but..." just before they continue with the inevitably fucked up conversation.

Angela still holds to the idea that "There was still a shot that Peter Parker could be re-imagined." Perhaps Angela and her "fans" would have preferred that Peter Parker be a trans-special Lesbian Tumblr feminist who moonlights as a bi-curious werewolf unicorn from outer space.

Wired Editor has a "problem" with Peter Parker being played by a white actor.

So in an article written by Bradley Wint of Trymodern.com, Ikea is interested in selling furniture that can wireless-ly charge a post-modern hipster's inevitably white iPhone, as seen in this picture below:

No longer must the libertarian starbucks blogger with a Pintrest account be forced to charge their apple computer by crawling underneath an awkwardly positioned coffee table to plug it into an outlet controlled by the system. Now, all they need do is sit at home, in their roach-infested 100 year old apartments, and write articles about that one band no living human being has ever heard of, from the comfort of their own IKEA desk!
There are also a wide variety of anti-establishment desk lamps designed to charge your phone in a variety of ironic ways, just in case you think using a cord is too mainstream. There's even one that looks like the world's most ironic tobacco pipe!

Ikea makes furniture to charge your douchey hipster devices
