choice quotes:
It started as a search for a simple $29 software upgrade. I didn’t leave until three hours later—after spending $1,053.88. And yet, I was happy with the whole experience. How could this be?

...

The stores act as a luminous, three-dimensional ad for Apple, a kind of DisneyWorld meets Tron. To be inside one is to be immersed in an all-Apple world, filled with Apple-lovers on both sides of the sales counter.

...

My ascent into this heavenly retail experience started with a basic need

...

Cut to the Apple store on 14th street, with its shimmering, glassed-in façade and translucent, corkscrew staircase. Immediately you are greeted by a sea of t-shirted techies, all of them Apple seedlings

...

I needed to update the laptop’s operating system and pointed to a $29 upgrade...Soon I learn my machine can’t take the $29 upgrade...and I need to install the latest iteration: Snow Leopard. New cost: $152.43. No problem...Ring up $30 for an 8-gigabyte flash drive.

...

I’m gonna need a bigger drive...Ah, here comes a new Apple wi-fi set-up with router and wireless disk...That and the two-terabyte drive add another $870 or so.

...

With each purchase, a nice-guy techie holds my hand...

...

I might have bought even more gear...
His $1000+ purchase of the OS upgrade, thumb drive, and wireless backup hard drive should have cost less than $500. But for a mere 2x the actual value, boy he sure did get a great experience.

That entire monetary exchange is basically no different from when you go out on Tuesday nights looking for trade. You end up getting some twink in a "LETS RAVE!" tshirt blowing you for twice the going rate.

Snap?

Where's the 6 page diatribe?

Ableton forum - not just double standards, all you can eat double standards.

oh look...h20 beating his little drama drum again.

Anyway since you ask, Neb has been at the receiving end of countless diatribes for his incessant homosexual digs. Double standards ? Nope. There's only so much tar and feathers that can be applied.

And btw, you have absolutely no grasp of satire much less sarcasm.
If someone starts making serious complaints about their disdain for homosexuals joining their gym, for example, and doesn't get called on it - by all means raise the 'double standards' flag. until then blow me.

:lol: Yeah I just did a Windows update on my Mac and forgot to uncheck that search function peace of shit... lame.


@ dum, I was actually joking about what a pick and choose (cherry picking) type mentality some folks have, then they want to flame and rally the mob. Its funny to me that your big bass ass jumped right out of the pond on that one. I'm glad you liked the bait so much, I rubbed it on my nuts before I threw the hook in the water.

I hear that bait rubbed in balls is both good for the bait and the balls.

again with the vague 'some people' statements.

That wasn't bait so much as it was a patently obvious continuation of yesterdays race discussion. A discussion that about, what, 4 people took part in ? give or take. Only two of whom had any beef with what was being said by OP. Me being one of them.


So, enjoy your fantasy that you even set bait to be taken.
