earthquake shmearthquake…

Apparently we had an earthquake yesterday.
I didn’t feel it.
I did, however, see nothing but earthquake coverage on the local news all afternoon and into the night.
Enough already.
it’s over. We’ve all survived. Move on.
In bigger news, thousands of sheep line up days in advance for the new iPhone4.
Experts predict that by the time the last person in line purchases their new iPhone, it will have been updated to the newer iPhone5!

So much stupidity, so little time.

An Apple Mini for $699?

I’m taking time out from my blog to write an open letter to Steve Jobs.
We will resume our regularly scheduled Rants when my blood pressure  returns to safe levels again.

Dear Mr. Jobs,

I’ve been a fan and admirer of your company for some time now.
Your products are ground breaking and very high quality.
Your operating system is a joy to use and frees me from hours of tech support for all the family and friends I’ve converted to the Cult of Mac.
Your iPod Touch and iPad are fantastic.

So why the Hell are you charging $699 for a stripped down Apple Mini?!!??

I mean really? $699 for a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2GB of memory?  A 320GB hard drive and not even so much as a Blu Ray drive?

Are you out of your mind?

It’s supposed to be your entry level Mac.
It’s supposed to be the affordable desktop that entices people into buying Mac.
It’s not supposed to cost $700!!!!

Dear God man! You can get a Macbook for a couple hundred more!!!

What were you thinking?
Let’s kill the Mini once and for all?
Who in their right mind is going to shell out $700 for a basic desktop when they can have three times the machine for that much?

Not to mention no keyboard, mouse, monitor, BLURAY!!!

I feel sick. This makes me sick. I’m sick.

So much stupidity, so little time.

i can’t have nothing nice

Nothing lasts forever.
I learned that little fact early in life. It was later enforced when I had kids.
Things I owned, nice things, were broken or vanished with great regularity.
But this latest assault to my ‘nice things’ was perhaps the most upsetting.
My three week old Ford Mustang was damaged by a shower of rocks coming out of the back of a DOT truck.
BAM! There goes the nice red paint job on my hood.
Nothing I can do about it.
The nice lady at the DOT was very apologetic and offered to send me a claim form.
“What are the chances of my claim being paid off?” I asked.
Her reply?
“They won’t pay.”
So I’m left with three chunks to the metal smack dab in the center of my hood, rust to follow.
Michigan, you suck…
I have nowhere safe to drive.
Construction on roads that don’t need it, and roads that are unsafe to drive on.
Cmon DOT, get your act together and pull your corrupted head out of your rear!
