Apple’s and Linus’s take on Windows 7

October 23rd, 2009 No comments

Apple Propaganda, I mean PR

I posted about Microsoft’s four new Windows 7 commercials the other day and yes, they *are* commercials – they tell you a bit about the product they’re advertising. Now let’s take a look at Apple’s attempts – great PR btw! I think they were going for: ‘lets create the most douchebaggy thing to publicise our product and have people post blogs about it’. Well here’s some free PR work courtesy of Apple.

Bill Gates may go down in history for the BSoD for Windows 98 but lest we forget that little kid in school who was always jumping up and down for attention, teasing the smarter kids because he just wasn’t getting any attention.

“Now what is this? I dunno, but it works.” – Steve Jobs

“It’s pretty awesome when it works.” – Steve Jobs

It sure is Steve, it suuuuure is. Think Different. It just works. I wonder how they’ll cover having an ad-supported Mac OS X operating system in the future?

Linus Torvalds

Anyway I much prefer the suttle attitude that Linus Torvalds took at the Japan Linux Symposium.

He’s got a sense of humour (and coolness) and as a Linux user (#412328) I’m ever grateful for his operating system. Damn I miss Japan 🙁

Avoid using Snow Leopard Guest Account, unless you want to loose your home.

October 13th, 2009 No comments

Dude wheres my data? Well chances are you’ve logged into a Guest account on your shiny new Snow Leopard (the world’s most advanced operating system!).

As a confused veteran of the Mac informs us:

Ok accidentally clicked on “guest account” to log into my mac…was taking a while to log in so i walked away, came back a minute later and i was greeted with my normal login list again, my usual acc, and the guest user, this time i clicked on the correct one and when it started up i now have a VERY simple desktop, std snow leopard desktop (not my normal desktop pic) and cant see any HD.

Ive been using macs for decades.. what the heck have i done here? repeated restarts and logins never get me back to me usual user acc?… errrm panic kicking in

They should have a feature listing for that, finely tuned operating system level porn mode! Maybe for iSkeet Leopard 2.0!

But in all seriousness you should disable your guest account, its not worth loosing your /home over. Hopefully you’ve kept backups to revert to. QA much?
