Mac Book or Vista?
My computer died an untimely death. It was less than a year old, but cannot be resuscitated. Instead of spending money to try to repair it, I am opting to just buy a new one. So, now I have a quandary. Do I get a PC with the upcoming new Microsoft Vista OS or do I join the Darin/Adam/Joe Geek Club and get a Mac Book? Hmmm... decisions... decisions.
Before I make this decision, I have to look at what I really do on my PC at home. I mostly do time wasting things like chatting online to build and maintain my social network. A guy needs friends doesn't he? Or there is the feeding of my ego through all those various sites where people either sign your guest book, leave a comment, or tell me how much my profile or pics made them feel inside.
My PC also allows me to post on my blog and grow my faux celebrity much to the chagrin of my local friends. That's always fun to get a rise out of your local friends. Hey, at least I am capable of expressing myself in written form! I am one of the few Americans who went through a public education and can write well enough.
Let's see... what else do I do with a computer? I often post lots of gratuitous pictures of myself to get those ego boosting comments. What good does that do me? When is that ever going to lure me a future suitable husband? Where is he goddammit?!
So tell me... should I get a Mac Book, a Microsoft Vista PC or a LIFE?
